INDIANAPOLIS -- Kenrick Ellis' trial for malicious wounding, scheduled for Tuesday, was postponed until May 22, according to court records in Hampton, Va.

This marks the third continuance. It was originally scheduled to go to trial last July, three months after he was drafted in the third round by the Jets. The alleged incident took place in April, 2010.

The second-year defensive tackle is charged with attacking another student on the campus of Hampton University. Because he's a non-U.S. citizen (born in Jamaica) and because it's a felony charge, he risks deportation if convicted.
