EA Sports removes Kareem Hunt from Madden 19

Former Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt has been scrubbed from Madden NFL 19.

Hunt was released from the Chiefs on Friday after video surfaced showing him pushing and kicking a woman in a Cleveland hotel in February.

Anyone who had Hunt on their Madden roster will have him replaced with a generic player, according to EA Sports.

"The updates have fully gone through now so Hunt has been removed from the game and players who were using him for Ultimate Team have their replacement player," EA spokesperson Brad Hilderbrand told CNN.

Hilderbrand added that the replacement player's ratings and attributes are the same, so the move shouldn't impact on-field performance.

EA Sports previously removed former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice from Madden following his domestic violence arrest in 2014.

"Ray Rice is probably the closest analog as that incident happened during the season as well," Hilderbrand said.
