Georgia has indefinitely suspended starting linebacker Adam Anderson, who has been accused of raping a woman, sources told ESPN on Thursday.

Anderson, a senior from Rome, Georgia, has not been arrested.

According to an Athens-Clarke County Police Department incident report, a 21-year-old woman told police that she went to a house in Athens, Georgia, between 12 a.m. and 7 a.m. on Friday. After having drinks, the woman said, she woke up while Anderson was having sexual intercourse with her. She told police the sex was not consensual, according to the report.

She reported the incident to police later that day.

“The investigation is still ongoing,” Athens-Clarke County Police lieutenant Shaun Barnett told ESPN. “No arrest or final determination, either way, has been made.”

Anderson played in Georgia’s 34-7 victory over Florida in Jacksonville, Florida, on Saturday.

Anderson is one of the stars of No. 1 Georgia’s defense. He leads the Bulldogs with five sacks and is second on the team with 5 ½ tackles for loss to go with 32 tackles and 14 quarterback hurries.

Anderson, 6 feet 5 and 230 pounds, is ranked the No. 29 prospect for the 2022 NFL draft by ESPN’s Todd McShay, and the No. 2 outside linebacker by Mel Kiper Jr.
