Hearing for Bills' Whitner delayed, but won't interfere with preseason

The disorderly conduct case against Buffalo Bills safety Donte Whitner has been pushed back to July 31, but apparently won't interfere with his preseason workouts.

CLEVELAND -- The disorderly conduct case against Buffalo Bills safety Donte Whitner has been pushed back to July 31, but apparently won't interfere with his preseason workouts.

Whitner appeared briefly in Cleveland Municipal Court on Friday on allegations of trying to force his way past officers dealing with a crowd outside a nightclub in April. He's charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

Whitner's attorney, Larry Zukerman, told Judge Angela Stokes that both sides were involved in negotiations aimed at a plea deal. With the agreement of the defense and prosecution, the judge said Whitner could skip next month's hearing because of preseason workouts.

Zukerman and the prosecutor, Bryan Fritz, declined to elaborate on the negotiations.
