PHOENIX (AP) - A March 4 trial is set for Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer on charges that he assaulted his wife during arguments at their apartment.

Dwyer has pleaded not guilty to felony aggravated assault and eight misdemeanors charges.

Investigators say Dwyer broke his wife’s nose during a July 21 argument, and the next day punched her and threw a shoe at his 17-month-old son, who wasn’t injured.

He was initially booked on suspicion of aggravated assault against his son but wasn’t indicted on that allegation.

Dwyer was arrested in September as the NFL and Commissioner Roger Goodell were criticized amid a series of off-the-field encounters involving some marquee players.

After his arrest, the Cardinals placed Dwyer on the reserve/non-football illness list, meaning he can’t play for Arizona again this season.
