Justin Cox is no longer a member of the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
The defensive back has been released by the club following a charge of assault causing bodily harm against him.
A 23 year old woman was allegedly assaulted at a home in Regina on the weekend.
The 24 year old Cox, who was named the team's top rookie, last season was taken into custody and will appear in court next month.
This is not the first time Cox has been in trouble with the law.
In 2015 Cox was released from the NFL's Kansas City Chiefs after being charged with domestic violence, burglary and trespassing.
