On Tuesday, it was reported that Houston Texans running back Darius Anderson was arrested Friday and charged with burglary with intent to rape, which is a first-degree felony.
Things have changed drastically for him.
Aaron Wilson reports the charges against Anderson have been updated to burglary with intent to commit assault. Houston police attributed the initial charge of burglary with intent to rape to a coding error.
“We are aware of the report involving Darius Anderson,” the Texans said in a statement Monday. “We are gathering information and have no further comment at this time.”
Anderson is scheduled to be arraigned on Wednesday.
The 24-year-old signed with the Dallas Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of TCU in 2020. He then spent time with the Indianapolis Colts before signing with Houston’s practice squad late last season.
He has yet to appear in an NFL game.
