It's been a long time since there's been an update on the status of the sexual assault investigation involving Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor. The last update came in late June, when it was reported that the Philadelphia Police Department turned the case over to the District Attorney's office for review. Now we have several more updates, via several sources.
First, Mark Eckel of NJ.com reports that District Attorney Seth Williams is set to make his decision on Agholor and announce it tomorrow on Friday. Eckel's report has been refuted by Philadelphia magazine, however, which claims the District Attorney's office told them there will be no announcement on Friday.
Though the timing of an announcement may be unclear, it appears charges are not expected to be filed against Agholor. Here's what Eckel wrote.
According to the source, the police came to the conclusion that no charges should be filed, but that the decision will ultimately come from Williams' office.
"The police, after their investigation, didn't feel there was enough to file charges,'' the source said.
Les Bowen of the Daily News is also reporting the same thing.

Agholor was accused of sexually assaulting a 27-year-old employee at the Cheerleaders Gentlemen’s Club after the Eagles' final minicamp practice on June 9. The assault claim reportedly stemmed from a money dispute. Sources close to Agholor originally claimed the receiver was involved in "a setup."
