Former Ohio State cornerback Gareon Conley will not face sexual assault charges for an alleged incident that occurred days before the 2017 NFL Draft. On Monday, a grand jury completed its investigation and decided against an indictment, according to FOX 8’s Ed Gallek.
Conley was accused of sexual assault following a situation at a Cleveland hotel. Conley claimed he was never alone with the accuser and said, via his attorney, Kevin Spellacy, that a consensual sexual event had taken place. Conley’s attorney said that this event was not intercourse.
Coach Harbaugh stressed that Joe Flacco is not expected to miss any action in the regular season because of the back. Just a week of rest.
Flacco played in all 16 of the Ravens’ games in 2016, leading them to an 8-8 record. He threw for over 4,300 yards, 20 touchdowns, and 15 interceptions on the season. Flacco’s missed just six games in his career. A knee injury during the 2015 season ended his perfect streak of 137 career starts.
The Ravens have two other quarterbacks on the roster in Ryan Mallett and Dustin Vaughan. Even with the most optimistic estimates for Flacco’s recovery, the Ravens still may be forced to add another passer just to have a third quarterback for the early part of training camp.
The Ravens begin camp on Thursday, where head coach John Harbaugh will speak to the media after practice.
