ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Taylor Lewan of the Tennessee Titans is headed for a jury trial in October.
The former Michigan offensive tackle is accused of punching an Ohio State fan after the Buckeyes beat the Wolverines last season. Lewan says he was breaking up a dispute and wasn't involved in a fight.
He is charged with one count of aggravated assault and two counts of assault and battery. He was told Thursday to return to Ann Arbor District Court on Oct. 27 for jury selection and trial the next day. The Titans will not be preparing that week for a game.
Lewan was drafted No. 11 overall. He is one of three players drafted this year without a contract.
