Mid-February trial date for Packers LB Walden
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. 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.
