Dennard, who was arrested early in the morning of July 11 on suspicion of driving under the influence, has a new hearing scheduled for Sept. 16 at 10:30 a.m., four days after the Patriots' second regular-season game. The hearing was originally set for August but was postponed until Friday.

In a separate case, Dennard received two years' probation after being convicted of felony assault of a police officer during an April 2012 incident in Lincoln and is scheduled to serve 30 days in jail in March 2014 .

The second-year player was a seventh-round pick by the Patriots in 2012 and became a starter late in the season, a role he is expected to resume in 2013.
