Titans OLB Rashad Weaver’s trial date pushed back again

Tennessee Titans outside linebacker Rashad Weaver was supposed to begin a jury trial for a simple assault charge he picked in April of 2021 on Tuesday, but the date for the trial has been pushed back yet again.

According to Titans beat writer Paul Kuharsky, the trial date has been pushed back to May 16, with a status hearing set for April 12. He was originally set for trial last August before it was pushed to January.

Weaver’s simple assault charge stems from an alleged April 18, 2021 incident in which a woman, Demetria Navjelis, claims Weaver “grabbed her by the throat and pushed her to the ground, where she ultimately hit her head.”

Weaver was drafted by the Titans less than two weeks after the alleged incident. News of it broke just days after he was selected by Tennessee.

If found guilty, the charge carries a maximum sentence of no more than two years, but chances are Weaver would receive probation. He could also face discipline from the league.
