JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Former Jacksonville Jaguars defensive tackle Roy Miller was released the same day of his arrest for a domestic battery charge on Saturday.

The jail log shows he was booked shortly before 5 a.m. and released from jail at 3:30 p.m.

Details about what led up to his arrest are not yet available.

In his first court appearance, the judge said the victim is no longer pressing charges against Miller. The judge said Miller's release will be rescinded if there is any violence toward the victim. Miller is allowed to contact the victim, the judge said.

The 320-pound nose tackled played 50 games for the Jaguars from 2013-2016. He was cut in March and currently plays for the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Chiefs released a statement saying: "This morning we were informed about an incident involving one of our players, Roy Miller. We are still in the process of gathering details on the situation. We will have no further comment at this time."

The team has a bye this week. 

Miller started his career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2009.

He was known as a locker-room leader and front-line player during his time in Jacksonville.
