FLORHAM PARK, N.J.— New York Jets wide receiver Braylon Edwards is in Cleveland for a court appearance while the team practices for its AFC divisional playoff game against San Diego Chargers.
Edwards was at a Cleveland court Tuesday after pleading not guilty in November to a misdemeanor assault charge after he was accused of punching a man outside a downtown nightclub.
The former Browns receiver was traded to the Jets two days after he was accused of punching a friend of NBA star LeBron James on Oct. 5.
Edwards is expected to return to the Jets’ facility later Tuesday, participate in team meetings and receive the game plan for the matchup at San Diego on Sunday.
