Buffalo Bills Matt Ariaza issued a statement after a lawsuit accused him of gang rape during his time at San Diego State:
In a statement released during the game, Araiza said, “The facts of the incident are not what they are portrayed in the lawsuit or in the press. I look forward to quickly setting the record straight.”
Araiza was not seen on the sideline at any point during Friday’s game or in the locker room afterward, although he did travel with the team to Charlotte, North Carolina. McDermott said Araiza was flying back with the team to Buffalo on Friday night.
McDermott did not comment on whether Araiza would be on the Bills’ roster Tuesday, when teams have to cut rosters to 53 players.
