LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A Nebraska assault trial for New England Patriots rookie Alfonzo Dennard has been delayed again.

Online court records say that on Thursday a Lincoln judge granted Dennard’s request to move the trial to the February 2013 jury term.

Dennard was granted a delay in July that would have put off the trial to at least next month.

He’s pleaded not guilty to a felony assault charge and two related misdemeanors.

Prosecutors say Dennard assaulted a police officer on April 21 outside a bar in Lincoln, where he played cornerback for Nebraska.
