The quiet time recently has gotten particularly unquiet, when it comes to allegations of off-field misconduct.

According to, Jaguars defensive tackle Marcel Dareus has been sued for sexual assault, and for exposing the unnamed plaintiff to a sexually-transmitted disease.

The lawsuit claims that Dareus had sex with the plaintiff “while she was unconscious and therefore without her consent,” and that in a later consensual encounter, Dareus allegedly failed to disclose that he has herpes.

The alleged incidents occurred in Houston in early April. It’s unclear whether a criminal complaint has been filed. Dareus is subject to NFL scrutiny under the Personal Conduct Policy regardless of whether criminal charges are pursued.
