Kareem Hunt, the former running back for the Kansas City Chiefs who was recently suspended from the NFL after video showed him assaulting a 19-year-old woman, will no longer be in EA's Madden 19.
TMZ contacted EA and a representative told the site, "We are in the process of removing Kareem Hunt from the Madden NFL 19 roster, Madden Overdrive and Madden Ultimate Team." Hunt will be replaced in Ultimate Team with a generic player with "identical stats" to Hunt so any player with Hunt in their roster won't lose those specs.
EA Sports did something similar for Ray Rice who was suspended from the NFL in 2014 for domestic violence.
Hunt has been cut from the Chiefs and placed on the Commissioner's Exempt list which means he will still be able to sign and get paid by another team, though no team has come forward for Hunt yet.
