(KSL News) -- The investigation into rape accusations against at least two BYU football players continues, but still no decision on charges.

Today Provo's Daily Herald is reporting that a judge has issued a search warrant ordering four men to submit to blood testing for any possible DNA match. However, that warrant has still not been filed in Provo's District Court.

Back on August 9th, a 17-year old girl reported to police that she was raped inside the players apartment after she passed out from drinking vodka.

The next day police served a search warrant at the apartment and seized a pornograpic DVD, bed sheets and condoms.

Prosecutors are giving no timeline to when their investigation will be finished.
