COLUMBIA— Prosecutors have charged suspended Missouri running back Derrick Washington with sexual assault.

Assistant Boone County prosecutor Andrea Hayes says a single count of felony deviate sexual assault was filed Monday. She says she will seek $4,500 bond.

Washington has led the Tigers in rushing the past two seasons. Coach Gary Pinkel suspended him last week without disclosing details. Boone County court documents show Washington had been served with a protection order in late June and accused of sexual assault by a former Missouri tutor.

The Tigers open the season Saturday against Illinois in St. Louis.
