A total of 10 women have filed complaints to Houston police against Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson, his attorney, Rusty Hardin, told ESPN's John Barr.

Two women brought forward new complaints and are not among the 22 who have filed civil lawsuits against Watson for sexual assault and/or inappropriate sexual behavior during massage sessions. Eight of the complainants are among those suing Watson.

Hardin said the NFL has yet to speak to Watson about the allegations.

"We've made it clear to the NFL that we'll totally cooperate with them when they're ready to visit with us. But they, out of deference to the criminal investigation, always try to wait until that's completed before they try to talk to the accused person," Hardin said.

The league has spoken to nearly half the 22 plaintiffs suing Watson as it continues its investigation, said attorney Tony Buzbee, who represents the complainants.

Depositions for the plaintiffs won't begin until September. Watson is expected to be deposed in February 2022.

The 25-year-old is expected to attend Texans training camp starting Tuesday.
