Lincoln Cast, a former NFL player, is suing former NFL running back and current Alabama offensive lineman Kony Ealy.
In the lawsuit, Cast alleges that Ealy and his teammates raped and assaulted him.
He also alleges that he was subjected to repeated sexual and physical abuse by Ealy, who was a student at Lincoln High School in Alabama from 2011 to 2015.
Cast claims in the lawsuit that EALY assaulted him at least twice in the summer of 2014, once in his bedroom and again on his locker room floor.
Cast also alleges in the complaint that EALEY forced himself on him during a game and during a party in December 2014.
Cast has not responded to multiple requests for comment.
The NFL Players Association, which represents all 32 NFL teams, has not commented on the lawsuit.
Cast’s lawyer, Paul DePodesta, told the AP on Monday that Cast has been denied due process.
The lawsuit says that Eales family members had no involvement in the sexual assault allegations and that the family “never received a statement from the university concerning the allegations made against Mr. Cast.”
Ealy, a four-year starter at Alabama, was dismissed from the program last month after he was charged with two counts of sexual assault.
The two incidents were captured on a cellphone video that Cast allegedly sent to a friend.
He was charged and released from jail on a $2,000 bond.
Ealy has been accused of multiple sexual assault claims in previous cases, including in March 2017 when he was accused of forcing himself on a female University of Alabama student.
The accuser, who is also named in the suit, said Ealy assaulted her at the university’s basketball arena.
The university announced in February that it was investigating allegations that Ealey assaulted a female student.
