Two flight attendants are suing Washington Commanders kicker Brandon McManus and his former team, the Jacksonville Jaguars, alleging he sexually assaulted them during a flight to London for an international game last season, according to court documents obtained by ESPN.

The women -- identified in the lawsuit as Jane Doe I and Jane Doe II in the Duval County Circuit Civil Court lawsuit filed last Friday (May 24) -- claim that McManus rubbed and grinded himself against them, while also accusing the Jaguars of failing to supervise him, leading to an unsafe working environment for the staff workers on the Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings charter flight, which took place on September 28, 2023. The accusers are seeking more than $1 million and demanding a jury trial in relation to the incident.

McManus is expected to release a statement either personally or through an attorney on Monday (May 27) while the Jaguars reportedly declined to comment through a representative. The Commanders, who signed McManus to a one-year, $3.6 million contract in March, confirmed they were aware of the accusations against the kicker.

"Earlier today, we were made aware of the civil lawsuit filed on May 24 against Brandon McManus. We take allegations of this nature very seriously and are looking into the matter," the Commanders said in a statement obtained by ESPN. "We have been in communication with the League Office and Brandon's representation, and will reserve further comment at this time."
