Former NFL running back Ray Rice has been dumped by the Baltimore Ravens and "indefinitely" suspended from the professional football league. Now, EA Sports says that they are pulling Rice from their Madden NFL 15 video game roster.

Rice was initially suspended only two games for beating his wife. The league reversed its punishment after a video of the incident vividly displayed the violent nature of the attack, drawing a public backlash over the lax response from the NFL.

EA says that they are removing Rice in response to his indefinite suspension from the NFL. The company says that his removal will be done using a downloadable patch to the game. Rice was on the cover of Madden NFL 13.
