Rice was due to appear in an Atlantic County courthouse Tuesday after being arrested and charged for simple assault.
The postponement comes after the police department requested the prosecutor's office get involved in the case. This will allow the prosecutor's office to review the charges.
Rice and his fiancée were both arrested for simple assault after an incident early Saturday at a casino in Atlantic City, N.J. According to a police summons, Rice struck his fiancée with his hand, rendering her unconscious.
