Three analysts at NFL Network have been suspended.

The NFL Network has suspended three analysts following sexual harassment allegations from a former employee.

Scott Soshnick, a reporter for Bloomberg, reports that a former NFL Network executive and multiple analysts are accused of groping and making sexually explicit comments to a former colleague.

The NFL Network has announced that three analysts - Marshall Faulk, Ike Taylor, and Heath Evans - have been suspended from their duties pending the results of the investigation.

Sports Illustrated's Richard Deitsch has confirmed the news.

From Bloomberg:

The allegations against the retired players and Eric Weinberger, who’s now president of sports commentator Bill Simmons’s media group, are part of a lawsuit against NFL Enterprises in Los Angeles Superior Court. The amended complaint filed Monday detailed specific acts of harassment by several individuals who aren’t named as defendants.
