Washington, NFL “aware of” alleged domestic violence incident involving Jamison Crowder
Fourth-round pick Jamison Crowder has drawn some good reviews for his early practice work with the Redskins, but the rookie’s drawing some less positive attention on Thursday.
A Twitter user with the handle @TJMartinez21 took a screenshot from an Instagram page with the handle @j_crowder3 (Crowder wore No. 3 at Duke) on Wednesday night showing a woman with a cut lip and what appear to be bruises on her body accompanied by a long caption that appears to be written by the woman in the picture. It reads, in part, that she has “been choked, had a concussion, bruised, busted lips, grabbed, tossed around, hair pulled, verbally abused” by “Jamison” and that “‘Love’ is never an excuse or a reason.”
“The Washington Redskins are aware of an off-field situation involving Jamison Crowder. We have been in touch with the NFL office and will continue to follow proper League protocol and assist them in any way we can to gather all of the facts. We will not be making any further comment at this time.”
The NFL also issued a statement via Marvez.
“The team has been in touch with our office and we are looking into the matter.”
Crowder hasn’t issued a response of his own and there will surely be more to come as the circumstances around the post are investigated.
