The list of Deshaun Watson accusers is down to 22.

This week, one of the Houston Texans star quarterback’s accusers decided to drop their lawsuit “for now” due to privacy and security concerns, according to TMZ Sports.

The decision came after judges ruled that accusers must publicly identify themselves during proceedings.

The Houston Police Department opened a criminal investigation against Watson on April 2.

The NFL has also broken its silence about the allegations.

“The allegations are deeply disturbing and we take these issues very seriously,” NFL vice president of communications Brian McCarthy said in a statement to Pro Football Talk.

“Immediately following news of the first allegations last month, and as has been reported, we initiated an investigation under the NFL’s Personal Conduct Policy. We are continuing to closely monitor all developments in the matter.”

Watson and his attorney, Rusty Hardin, have adamantly denied the allegations and have provided letters of support from 18 other women.
