Steven Jackson is accused by his then-girlfriend of beating her until she was "bleeding heavily," TMZ reports. Supriya Harris was nine months pregnant at the time.

Harris says Jackson "forcibly grabbed my arm and flung me against the door" and "continued to shove me against the door until his nephew ... interceded and yelled, 'uncle, she has a baby, stop.'" The incident allegedly occurred in March 2009.

See TMZ for more info.

UPDATE: TMZ has obtained a photo of the wound.

In a statement, Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo said: "We are aware of the situation involving Steven Jackson. We are in the process of gathering information. We are always concerned with issues involving our players."

UPDATE, 5:41 PM ET: Steven Jackson denies the accusation. "It's disheartening that I have to address any alleged allegations 10 months later, but I have read the accusations made by Supriya Harris, and they are untrue," he told TMZ.
