Rutgers Removes Ray Rice From Promotional Materials

BALTIMORE (WJZ) -- The fallout continues from the Ray Rice scandal. The Ravens football star is cut from the team and suspended from the NFL, after graphic new video surfaces showing the fight inside a casino elevator. Now his alma mater is taking action.

Jessica Kartalija reports.

Ray Rice landed a punch that appeared to knock his then-fiancee out and got him suspended from the NFL.

Tuesday, Janay Rice lashed out on Instagram at the media. A message that the Baltimore Sun confirms was written by Rice says, "To make us relive a moment in our lives that we regret everyday is a horrible thing," and "Just know we will continue to grow & show the world what real love is!"

The scandal is also having an impact at Rice's alma mater, Rutgers University in New Jersey, where he was a star.

The athletic department says a banner that features Rice will soon come down. They are also removing his clips from a highlights video that is shown during games.

"Oh my God, that's unacceptable," student Karli Rymer said.

We showed the video to Rymer, who saw it for the first time. She agrees with the university's decision to remove all signs of Rice at Rutgers.

Players on the Rutgers football team weren't talking much and neither was head coach Kyle Flood, who was an assistant coach when Rice played for the Scarlet Knights.

"I have no comment on what the NFL has done and no communication with Ray, either," he said.

Rice's image is also disappearing from video games---he is being dropped from the hit game Madden NFL 15---and Nike says it is severing ties with the former Ravens running back.
