Heroes star Hayden Panettiere is dating NFL plaryer Scotty McKnight, reports Usmagazine.com.
Panettiere, 21, split from Ukrainian heavyweight boxer Wladimir Klitschko last month.
Earlier this month, Panettiere was mistakenly linked with Mark Sanchez, a mutual friend of hers and McKnight.
The actress clarified to Us weekly on June 2, "I'm a huge Jets fan and became very good friends with Mark and his buddies."
"I've always been that girl who has a lot of dude friends. I'm into sports so we have a lot in common," she added.
