The website Lafosadelrancor.com posted this article (let your browser perform the text translation as needed) that contains a quote from director Marcos Cabotá in which he states the character of Rahm Kota was part of an early draft of the script for Gareth Edwards’ Rogue One.

If you are not familiar with Rahm Kota, he was a blind Jedi Master who appeared in LucasArts’ popular The Force Unleashed video game series. The inclusion of this character was eventually dropped/altered to accommodate Donnie Yen’s blind staff-wielding Jedi Chirrut Imwe instead.
