(CNN)- There’s no evidence that anyone at the NFL saw or possessed a video showing Ray Rice striking his then-fiancée until it was made public, but the league should have known it needed to dig deeper into the incident, former FBI Director Robert Mueller concluded in a report released Thursday.

“We concluded there was substantial information about the incident — even without the in-elevator video — indicating the need for a more thorough investigation,” Mueller said in his report. “The NFL should have done more with the information it had, and should have taken additional steps to obtain all available information about the February 15 incident.”
