Dennard now due in court Aug. 27

Patriots cornerback Alfonzo Dennard is due back in court on Aug. 27 to determine if his arrest on suspicion of driving under the influence violated his probation, Lori Pilger of the Lincoln Journal Star tweeted this morning.

The Patriots will play their preseason finale against the Giants on Aug. 29.

Dennard was initially supposed to be in court in Lincoln, Neb., on July 31, which would have come six days after he was due to report to the Patriots for training camp. That date, according to Pilger, has now been changed.
