New England Patriots running back Danny Woodhead has been eliminated in the Madden '12 Cover Vote bracket.

EA Sports has teamed up with ESPN to allow fans to vote for their favorite player to appear on next year's video game cover. The athletes began in a typical 32-player bracket and are matched up against a new opponent each week. The athlete that receives the most votes advances.

Woodhead lost to Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rogers, who received 56 percent of the vote to advance to the Final Four.

In previous rounds, Woodhead defeated Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson and New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks.

Rogers is now up against Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis. On the opposite side of the bracket, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick is facing off with Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson.

You can participate in the vote at ESPN.com. The cover winner will be revealed on ESPN on April 25.
