AOL’s Fanhouse reported late Saturday night that Sapp will no longer be on the network moving forward. Sapp was pulled from NFL Network’s Super Bowl coverage, but a decision has not been made about his future, according to NFLN spokesman Dennis Johnson.
“The report is inaccurate. We are reviewing the matter,” Johnson said in an email to PFT Sunday morning.
Sapp is due to appear in front of a Miami-Dade County judge Sunday after being arrested for misdemeanor domestic battery. The victim in the case alleges Sapp choked her. Her affidavit said she had a swollen knee and bruises on her back.
The network released the following statement about Sapp Saturday:
“We have been made aware of the arrest of Warren Sapp by the Miami Beach Police
Department. In light of these circumstances, he will not appear on NFL Network
while we review the matter.”
