Tennessee Titans rookie Taylor Lewan to go to trial for assault

By Leighton Schneider,

Tennessee Titans rookie offensive lineman Taylor Lewan will go to trial for an alleged assault on Oct. 28 in Michigan.

The former University of Michigan left tackle is facing one count of misdemeanor aggravated assault and two counts of assault and battery. Two Ohio State fans claim that Lewan assaulted them early in the morning following the Michigan-Ohio State football game, according to ESPN.

Lewan will have to be at the jury selection on Oct. 27 ahead of trial the next day, according to the Detroit Free Press.

He will not miss any games or practices while attending the trial, as that week is the Titans bye week.

Lewan has said he didn’t do anything wrong throughout ordeal saying that he was trying to break up a fight and that that isn’t the type of person he is off the field.

“I wasn’t in any fight of any kind; I was actually breaking something up, and some guy said I slugged him,” Lewan has previously said. “But that’s not who I am off the field, that’s not the kind of person I am. It might seem that way because of the way I play football, but that’s not me as a person.”

Lewan was the Titans first pick in the draft, number 11 overall. He is one of three players to be drafted that have not signed with their team.
