The Titans released a statement on Friday, saying, "We are aware of the situation and gathering additional information."

An arrest affidavit reported on by CBS Sports said Haskins allegedly became involved in an altercation with the victim, his girlfriend Makiah Green, because she allegedly "liked" a photo of a male on Instagram.

According to NBC Sports, Haskins' girlfriend provided photos of bruises to her face, shoulder and neck to police after the June 22 altercation. 

Reports said Haskins' girlfriend was also arrested on June 29 and charged with aggravated assault after an additional altercation, and was released after posting a $7,500 bond. She was reportedly charged with two counts of felony aggravated assault and strangulation, along with felony vandalism. 

The Titans chose Haskins in the fourth round of the 2022 NFL draft. He has played 15 games at the rookie level and had 36 touches for a total of 150 yards.
