After video of former Rutgers running back Rice hitting his wife in an elevator at Revel Casino last February surfaced on TMZ this week, the NFL reacted, and now so does Rutgers.

Per Keith Sargeant, Rice will no longer be featured in the "Knights in the NFL" video, which plays at High Point Solutions Stadium during home games.

Said AD Julie Hermann:

"It was very disturbing to see the video this morning.  As we go forward this serves to reinforce the ongoing need to educate and bring awareness to the issue of domestic violence.''

Tom Luicci also spoke to ESPN and Brett McMurphy. There, he says pictures and video of Rice will no longer be displayed at Rutgers.
