Police in Bellevue, Washington, are investigating whether Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was involved in an assault and damage of personal property.
The Bellevue Police Department released a statement Monday morning saying that the alleged incident took place around 2:30 a.m. Sunday and that Lynch is alleged to have been involved. Bellevue police stated that they have not been able to verify whether Lynch was involved, but are investigating.
The incident was reported by the female victim about 12 hours after it took place at a downtown Bellevue apartment. Police say there was no domestic violence or sexual assault involved in the allegation.
Browns’ quarterbacks struggle in rain
Browns coach Mike Pettine expects to name a starting quarterback for next Monday’s game against Washington sometime this week.
Until then, the competition remains wide open.
During a rain-soaked practice Monday morning, Brian Hoyer continued to take reps with the first-team offense, while Johnny Manziel practiced with the second team. Both quarterbacks struggled in the sloppier conditions, with Hoyer throwing two interceptions.
Pettine said that he will mix the reps through the week, expecting to make a decision with the staff based on a number of factors.
In Saturday’s preseason opener, Hoyer was 6 of 14 for 92 yards. Manziel completed seven passes in 11 attempts, adding 27 rushing yards on six carries.
Jets’ CB Milliner has sprained ankle
New York Jets cornerback Dee Milliner has a sprained left ankle that could sideline him for a few weeks, jeopardizing his availability for the regular-season opener.
Milliner was injured during practice Sunday, about a half-hour after fellow cornerback Dexter McDougle was lost for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. Milliner had an X-ray on his ankle, but the team is waiting for the swelling to subside before performing an MRI.
