Dennard's next day in court Aug. 27

Patriots cornerback Alfonzo Dennard will not be in Lancaster County District Court on Monday, as had been previously scheduled. He received a continuance on the hearing related to his July 11 arrest on suspicion of driving under the influence in Lincoln, Nebraska. The re-scheduled hearing will now take place on Oct. 8, which is a Tuesday, the day players have off during the regular season.

Dennard remains scheduled to be in court on Aug. 27 for a probation revocation hearing. He received two years probation on April 11, 2013 in relation to an incident that took place in April of 2012, for which Dennard was found guilty of felony assault of a police officer.

The 23-year old, who emerged as a starter at the tail end of his rookie season, has been limited recently due to an undisclosed injury and sat out the Patriots preseason opener.
