GREEN BAY, Wis. -- A mid-February trial date has been set for Green Bay Packers linebacker Erik Walden on a disorderly conduct-domestic abuse charge.
Host Rich Eisen, alongside seven-time
Pro Bowl picks Marshall Faulk and Warren Sapp, announce the 86 players selected to the 2012 Pro Bowl on NFL Network at 7:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday, Dec. 27.
He pleaded not guilty to the misdemeanor, which stems from a dispute with his girlfriend last month.
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 said he hopes the case can be resolved at a Feb. 13 pre-trial conference. A message left for Brown County district attorney John Zakowski was not immediately returned.
Walden spent the weekend after Thanksgiving in jail after his Nov. 25 arrest, and has continued to play.
