Baylor defensive back Travon Blanchard has been suspended indefinitely pending an investigation into domestic violence accusations against him.

Waco, Texas, television station KWTX obtained an affidavit that called for a protective order issued against Blanchard and filed Feb. 4. The order, issued by a McClennan County judge, says Blanchard engaged in multiple acts of violence against a woman with whom he had a relationship and that there is a "threat of family violence in the future."

"Immediately upon notification on Feb. 7, the appropriate campus student-conduct process was initiated and Blanchard was suspended indefinitely from all team related activities, pending the outcome of the investigation," Baylor director of athletic communications David Kaye said in a statement issued Tuesday.
