Cornerback Alfonzo Dennard was initially scheduled to be back in a Nebraska courtroom Tuesday for a hearing pertaining to his July 11 DUI arrest, but the Lancaster County Clerk's office said the hearing has been continued and will now he held Nov. 13 at 1:30 p.m.

That is five days before the Patriots' Monday night game against Carolina, which comes off the team's bye week.

The continuance was actually decided on Sept. 20, four days after Dennard appeared in court and admitted that the July incident was a violation of his probation that had been outlined three months earlier. That hearing had been continued twice before it occurred.

Earlier this year, Dennard was found guilty of striking a Lincoln, Neb., police officer during an April 2012 incident; at his sentencing, Judge Stephanie Stacy gave him 24 months probation and 30 days in jail to be served in March 2014.
