PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona Cardinals linebacker Daryl Washington is scheduled to be sentenced Wednesday for his guilty plea to a charge that he assaulted a former girlfriend who is the mother of his daughter.
The 27-year-old pleaded guilty nearly a month ago to aggravated assault arising out of a May 1 argument with the child's mother.
Authorities say Washington choked the woman and caused a fall that broke her right collarbone.
His possible punishments range from probation to 18 months in jail, though his plea agreement and prosecutors are calling for probation.
Washington has started 53 games over four seasons for Arizona. He had nine sacks last season and led the team in tackles in 2012 with 140.
