DENVER -- Pro Bowl safety T.J. Ward has been suspended for Denver's opener against Baltimore over a nightclub incident that happened more than 15 months ago.
Ward was charged with misdemeanor assault and disturbing the peace for allegedly throwing a glass mug at a female bartender at a Denver strip club in May 2014. Those charges were later dropped.
According to court documents, Ward was seen on video surveillance picking up the mug from the bar and throwing it after being told he couldn't bring a drink into the club.
The incident came shortly after Ward signed a four-year, $22.5 million deal in Denver.
Ward is the second Denver defender to get suspended. Derek Wolfe received a four-game ban for violating the NFL's drug policy.
