UPDATE: Colin Kaepernick's name will be added back to the soundtrack on Madden 19 ... according to a statement by the video game's developers.
According to EA, it was all an unfortunate misunderstanding. The company's taking the blame for Colin's name being scrubbed from YG's song "Big Bank" on the game.
EA says ... "We made an unfortunate mistake with our Madden NFL soundtrack. Members of our team misunderstood the fact that while we don’t have rights to include Colin Kaepernick in the game, this doesn’t affect soundtracks.
Colin Kaepernick won't be seen OR heard on the new "Madden NFL 19" ... 'cause the free agent QB's name was pulled from a Big Sean verse on the game's soundtrack, and Big Sean is pointing the finger at the NFL.
The game isn't officially drop until next week, but people who have gotten their hands on an early copy have noticed Kaep's name was wiped out from Sean's verse on YG's song "Big Bank" featuring 2 Chainz and Nicki Minaj.
What you're supposed to hear is "Feed me to the wolves now I lead the pack and sh*t. You boys all cap, I'm more Colin Kaepernick".
A video has been going viral on social media, and most people are assuming it has to do with Kaep's involvement in kick-starting the National Anthem controversy.
Kaep will not appear in the game as a player until he's signed to a team.
