BELLEVUE, Wash. — 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.
Bellevue police spokesman Seth Tyler told The Seattle Times there was no further information, adding “this is only an allegation. We haven’t even verified that he was involved.”
Tyler said authorities will discuss the matter with Lynch as soon as they can.
The Seahawks did not immediately return a message seeking comment.
PETTINE PLANS TO NAME STARTING QB LATER IN WEEK: In Berea, Ohio, Browns coach Mike Pettine expects to name a starting quarterback for next Monday’s game against the Washington Redskins 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.
JACKSON BACK AT FULL PRACTICE: In Richmond, Va., receiver DeSean Jackson returned to full practice after missing several days with a sore left ankle.
Jackson took part in the regular team drills Monday. He hurt his ankle during a joint practice with the New England Patriots last week and missed the preseason opener on Thursday.
Both Jackson and coach Jay Gruden said they expect the three-time Pro Bowl receiver to play in next Monday’s game against the Cleveland Browns.
QB QUINN AGREES TO TERMS: In Miami, former first-round draft pick Brady Quinn agreed to terms with the Miami Dolphins, his seventh NFL team.
Quinn reached an agreement on a deal after a tryout Monday and is expected to compete with Matt Moore for the backup job behind starter Ryan Tannehill.
Moore has been nursing a sore shoulder and didn’t play in the first exhibition game last week, but he practiced Monday.
Quinn was with the Seahawks, Rams and Jets last year but didn’t play. He started eight games for the Chiefs in 2012.
Quinn is 4-16 as a starter and has thrown 12 touchdowns and 17 interceptions. He was a star at Notre Dame and the 22nd pick in the 2007 draft by the Cleveland Browns after being widely projected to go higher.
