Shannon Sharpe takes leave of absence from CBS telecasts

Shannon Sharpe has taken a leave of absence from his job as an analyst on CBS telecasts of NFL games because of allegations of sexual assault.

A temporary restraining order was obtained by Michele Bundy, who filed a petition in the "family violence" category Thursday in Atlanta's Fulton County Superior Court. She alleges that Sharpe threatened her life and forced her to have sex, according to court documents.

"I have decided to step away from 'The NFL Today' (CBS' pregame show) until this matter is resolved," Sharpe said in a statement released by CBS. A hearing is scheduled for Monday.

CBS Pre-game still stinks.

Agree totally, even with Jimmy Johnson shirtless and unmoussed. I like JJ, but the Survivor look was tough to take.
