Erik Walden's trial set for February
He pleaded not guilty to the misdemeanor, which stems from a dispute with his girlfriend last month.
A judge Tuesday set a trial date of Feb. 16, which is 11 days after the Super Bowl.
NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said in an email to The Associated Press that the league will review the matter after the court case is resolved.
Defense attorney Steve Richards says he hopes the case can be resolved at a Feb. 13 pre-trial conference. Brown County district attorney John Zakowski says Walden didn't get special treatment.
Walden spent the weekend after Thanksgiving in jail following his arrest on Nov. 25, and has continued to play. He made a public apology to the Packers, his teammates and fans after he was released.
Walden has started 15 games for the Packers this season and has 57 tackles and three sacks.
