Tennessee Titans receiver Tajae Sharpe and offensive lineman Sebastian Tretola are being investigated for a possible assault of a man on the first night of the NFL Draft.
Dante R. Satterfield filed a civil lawsuit against the two players, claiming he was beaten by Sharpe as Tretola served as a lookout. People are investigating the incident.
In the suit, Satterfield said he suffered broken bones in his face, massive bruising, a concussion and a perforated eardrum among other injuries.
The encounter happened at the Tin Roof in Nashville on April 27. Sharpe was displeased when the Titans selected receiver Corey Davis in the first round and didn't like some of Satterfield's commentary about the selection.
According to the suit, Sharpe and Tretola asked Satterfield to come out in the alley.
"As soon as I walked out of the back of Tin Roof, that's when I get punched to the face," Satterfield told The Tennessean.
Satterfield was unconscious when police arrived.
Nashville police confirmed that it interviewed Satterfield on Wednesday.
Blaine Roche, the agent for Sharpe, denied the accusations.
"The claims are false, period," Roche said. "Tajae categorically denies any and all involvement and looks forward to fully vindicating himself. Unfortunately this is just a classic shakedown."
