The NFL announced they will not move to limit the participation of Deshaun Watson in football activities as they continue to investigate a series of sexual assault allegations against him.
“The NFL’s review of the serious allegations against Deshaun Watson remains ongoing and active,” the statement said. “We are work cooperatively with the Houston Police Department and ensuring that the NFL’s inquiry does not interfere with their investigation. As we continue to gather additional information and monitor law enforcement developments, we will make appropriate decisions consistent with the Collective Bargaining Agreement and the Personal Conduct Policy. At this time there are no restrictions on Watson’s participation in club activities.”
The NFL has not been given access to many of the plaintiffs in the civil suits or other parties with relevant information, a source tells ProFootballTalk.
