December 12, 2017 GMT

Former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb is one of several former NFL players mentioned in a lawsuit alleging sexual harassment at the NFL Network by a former wardrobe stylist according to USA Today and several news reports.

The NFL Network has suspended three former players — Pro Football Hall of Fame running back Marshall Faulk, Heath Evans and Ike Taylor who were analysts according to the lawsuit. The three broadcasters are suspended “pending an investigation into these allegations,” according to USA Today Sports.

The lawsuit was filed by Jami Cantor, a former colleague at the NFL Network. She accuses the current and former NFL Network employees of misconduct, citing several incidents. Cantor was reportedly fired in October 2016.


McNabb is no longer an employee at the NFL Network and currently works for ESPN as a radio analyst. He will not appear on the network while ESPN looks into the allegations of sexually inappropriate behavior at the NFL Network.
