The Associated Press

IRVING, Texas (AP) The NFL has been aware of Dallas Cowboys player C.J. Spillman's involvement in a reported sexual assault and has offered to interview the alleged victim "on a confidential and appropriate basis to obtain more information."

Spokesman Greg Aiello said Thursday the league has been "looking into the matter and will continue to do so."

Police in Grapevine, Texas, say Spillman is under investigation but hasn't been arrested or charged after a report of an alleged sexual assault early Sept. 20 at hotel in suburban Dallas.

Spillman flew with the team to St. Louis later that Saturday and played on special teams the next day. He has played in all four games this season.

The 28-year-old Spillman's attorney and agent have declined comment.
