INDIANAPOLIS Indianapolis Colts defensive tackle Eric Foster faces allegations that he sexually assaulted a 22-year-old college student before the AFC Championship game.

In a civil lawsuit, the woman accuses Foster of sexual assault, battery, false imprisonment and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

Her suit alleges the assault happened Jan. 24 at University Place Hotel at Indiana University-Purdue University in Indianapolis. The woman is a student at the school and a receptionist at the hotel.

The suit alleges that Foster assaulted her when she delivered dental products to his room.

The Colts were staying at the hotel before hosting the New York Jets at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Colts spokesman Craig Kelley declined to comment Tuesday on the lawsuit.
