Police and prosecutors are reviewing the claims, Maria Miller, spokeswoman for the Wayne County prosecutor's office, said Monday.
The complaint was made to authorities early Friday by the woman, who dances at a club on Detroit's west side. Police have submitted a criminal sexual conduct warrant request to the prosecutor's office, but Miller said charges were not expected to be filed Monday. The Detroit police sex crimes unit also was investigating the complaint.
``We're reviewing the reports that we have,'' Miller said. ``We're going to talk to the victim and any relevant witnesses.''
Miller would not say whether police or her office had spoken to Rogers or if he was at the club when the complaint was made.
Team officials are aware of the complaint.
``We're gathering information and have no further comment,'' said Lions spokesman Bill Keenist.
An e-mail seeking comment was sent Monday to Rogers and a telephone message seeking comment was left with his agent, Kennard McGuire.
