Rice was recently cut from the Ravens lineup and suspended from the NFL indefinitely over a domestic abuse scandal. A leaked video showed Rice punching out his then-fiancée (now wife) in an Atlantic City elevator before dragging her unconscious body out into the hallway.
We have reached out to EA Sports for confirmation of the rumor, and will update this story when the publisher responds with concrete information.
