Redskins rookie wide receiver Jamison Crowder has been accused of domestic violence via social media.
On Wednesday night, Twitter user @TJMartinez21 posted a screen shot from the Instagram account @j_crowder3 (Crowder wore No. 3 at Duke) that included pictures of a woman with a bruises on her body and a cut lip. The pictures were accompanied by a lengthy comment that read, in part, “j_crowder3 Bc I loved you. I never shared about our bad times…Ive had things thrown at me, poured on me, ive been choked, had a concussion, bruised, busted lips, grabbed, tossed around, hair pulled, verbally abuse. The list goes on.”
The post did not appear on @j_crowder3's Instagram page as of Thursday afternoon.
A Redskins spokesman responded to a reporter’s inquiry by issuing the following statement: “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. It reads: “The team has been in touch with our office and we are looking into the matter.”
Crowder has recently deleted his Twitter account.
The Redskins drafted Crowder in the fourth this season. He participated in Thursday's OTA practice at Redskins Park, a source confirmed.
UPDATE 5:50 p.m.: Crowder's agent made a statement on this incident to ESPN: "His account was hacked," said Tory Dandy. "Jamison hasn't hit anybody."
