The NYPD is investigating allegations by a woman that the Giants’ Jay Bromley attempted to rape her and that he struck her with his car early Saturday morning, according to reports.
The New York Daily News and New York Post both cite police sources who say Bromley was alleged to have brought the woman, 26, to a Manhattan hotel after online interactions.
No charges have been filed and no arrests have been made.
NYPD spokeswoman Sophia Mason confirmed that an investigation was underway but did not specifically name Bromley. “We’re investigating an incident from earlier this morning.” She declined to provide more information. The report came in around 8 a.m.
“We are aware of the situation and will continue to monitor it,” the Giants said in a statement. “We have notified the league office per the league’s protocol. We will have no further comment as we understand this is an ongoing investigation.”
Bromley, 23, just completed his second season with the Giants after being selected in the third round of the 2014 draft.
Rams hire Skip Peete
Veteran NFL assistant coach Skip Peete has been hired as the Los Angeles Rams’ running backs coach.
Rams coach Jeff Fisher announced the hiring Saturday.
Peete spent the past three years as the Chicago Bears’ running backs coach.
He also had lengthy stints in the job with the Oakland Raiders (1998-06) and Dallas Cowboys (2007-12).
Peete rejoins fellow Bears assistant Michael Groh, who was named the Rams’ receivers coach and passing game coordinator Monday.
Rob Boras is likely to remain the Rams’ offensive coordinator after serving in the job for the final four games of the season in St. Louis.
Peete replaces Ben Sirmans, who was among five assistants let go by Fisher after St. Louis’ offense finished last in the league.
Rodgers talks surgery
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers says he had knee surgery days after Green Bay was eliminated from the playoffs, according to a report.
Rodgers told ESPN.com on Friday night that he was “doing well” and “recovering on schedule.”
A Packers spokesman told the Associated Press that he didn’t have any injury information.
The Packers lost to Arizona 26-20 in the divisional round on Jan. 16.
Rodgers pulled out of the Pro Bowl later that week, citing an unspecified injury.
