Rice was charged with assault having been arrested on February 15 following an altercation with his fiancee at the time, Janay Palmer. The 27-year-old was alleged to have struck Palmer, whom he married later that month.
However, he has since been accepted into a diversion program, which could lead to the charges against him being dropped should he complete the course.
"I failed miserably, but I wouldn't call myself a failure because I'm working my way back up," Rice told reporters.
The three-time Pro Bowler had a relatively poor 2013 campaign by his own standards, rushing for just 660 yards and four touchdowns in his 15 matches.
