Not only is Ray Rice suspended from the NFL in real life, but now he’s being kicked out of the league, virtually. USAToday’s Brent Molina and FOXSports’ Mike Garafolo both report this morning that EA Sports will remove Rice, who has been indefinitely suspended by the league after video surfaced of the 27-year-old punching his girlfriend, from Madden NFL 15. EA Sports did something similar when it removed Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez from Madden and NCAA Football after his trouble with the law.
With Ray Rice’s indefinite suspension from the NFL, he will be removed from Madden NFL 15. The roster change will take place by this Friday.
