New England Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown received answers for at least two of the allegations staring the star wide receiver in the face.

According to a statement released by the Allegheny County District Attorney on Wednesday, there will be no criminal inquiry into two of the allegations against Brown.

In the statement, the DA revealed a statute of limitations prevents an investigation.

"Our office, along with the Allegheny County Police Department, made contact with counsel for the plaintiff in the federal lawsuit involving Antonio Brown. Procedurally, it appears there is a statute of limitations issue in moving forward with any inquiry involving the Allegheny County allegation mentioned in the lawsuit," the statement reads.

Britney Taylor, Brown's former trainer, accused the wide receiver of sexual assault in 2017. Brown allegedly "walked in [to a bathroom] with his penis exposed" and "grabbed and kissed [Taylor] without her consent."

Taylor also accused Brown of "forcibly" raping her in May 2018. It's unclear if a criminal investigation will be opened for that accusation.

Brown made his debut for the Patriots this weekend during the team's blowout win over Miami. He racked up four receptions for 56 yards and a touchdown in the team's 43-0 win.

New England hosts the New York Jets for a divisional contest on Sunday. The Patriots and Jets kick off at 1:00 p.m. ET.
