A protective order was filed against Oklahoma kicker Calum Sutherland in Cleveland County Court on Thursday, according to court documents.
OU suspended Sutherland indefinitely on Oct. 4 after he became the subject of a Title IX investigation stemming from a September public intoxication arrest at an apartment complex near OU's campus, during which an alleged assault against his girlfriend occurred.
The Oklahoman first reported a protective order was filed.
Sutherland began the season as OU's field-goal kicker, going 2 of 4, but hasn't played since his arrest. Gabe Brkic has filled in during his absence and made 10 consecutive field goals.
OU coach Lincoln Riley said Tuesday he believed Sutherland's Title IX process was still ongoing.
Protective orders in Oklahoma can be filed without criminal charges and can last up to three years.
Sutherland has a court hearing scheduled for Nov. 8.
