Arizona LB to be sentenced for choking girlfriend
PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona Cardinals linebacker Daryl Washington is scheduled to be sentenced today 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 in Maricopa County Superior Court 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.

The Jaguars released Allen last week after his personal physician consulted with Jacksonville’s medical staff before a scheduled physical.
