The NFL Network has suspended Hall of Fame Rams running back Marshall Faulk over sexual harassment claims. Faulk is one of five people suspended from the media network, according to Bloomberg.
The allegations stemmed from an ex-colleague, Jami Cantor, who accused former NFL players Faulk, Heath Evans and Ike Taylor of making sexually explicit comments and fondling her. She specifically singled out Faulk regarding the above actions.
The NFL Network released Cantor earlier this year. She responded by suing the NFL for wrongful termination. Cantor filed all claims back in October for a slew of allegations including working in a hostile environment and negligence of employee safety and well-being.
These serious accusations will put a blemish on Faulk’s NFL career if proven guilty. Faulk has yet to comment on the matter, and no word of any further professional or legal action at this time. The case is called, Cantor v. NFL Enterprises LP, BC678714 and will be held in California Superior Court in Los Angeles.
