Covington on his Madden 19 profile: Who is that?

EA Sports released Madden NFL 19 this month with a laundry list of new features.

And a Christian Covington player profile that looks nothing like the Texans defensive lineman.

Covington said he didn't even have a copy of the new Madden game. His cousin sent him a screen shot and that's when Covington first saw his EA likeness.

"I'm just like who is that? Because I know that's not me," Covington said, shaking his head. "I don't know who that is."

Reaction from Covington's tweet began blowing up on social media. Deadspin even described the profile as a "gelatinous thumb." Ouch.

The good-natured Covington takes it all in stride. An ugly Madden profile won't deter him from playing himself in the game."Growing up, it was every kid's dream to be on Madden," Covington said.

His teammates sure thought it was funny though.

Your Houston Texans have clocked in, warmed up and they are ready to take on the 49ers.
