Tennessee Titans outside linebacker Rashad Weaver was scheduled to have a preliminary hearing for a simple assault charge earlier this month, but the date for the hearing has since been pushed back.
According to Titans beat writer Paul Kuharsky, the hearing was continued to November 17. Weaver is currently out for the season after breaking his right fibula in Week 3 against the Indianapolis Colts.
The accusation against Weaver comes from a woman who claims the 23-year-old “grabbed her by the throat and pushed her to the ground, where she ultimately hit her head,” according to a criminal complaint filed on April 20, a little under two weeks before Weaver was drafted by the Titans.
Rashad Weaver’s criminal court appearance for a simple assault charge, initially scheduled for last week in Pittsburgh, was continued to Nov. 17. Apologies if that was out there. I missed it. #Titans

Back in May, Weaver denied the allegations through a statement from his attorney:
“The allegations against my client, Rashad Weaver, are completely false and reckless. Mr. Weaver takes these charges very seriously, and we look forward to clearing his good name. Without question and without hesitation, we deny Rashad punched anyone, especially a woman. We intend to conduct a full investigation of these charges, and intend to pursue all legal remedies.”
After having a standout preseason for the Titans, Weaver was inactive in Week 1 before appearing in the next two games. He played a combined total of 12 defensive snaps and 20 special teams snaps.
