GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Green Bay Packers cornerback Brandon Underwood pleaded not guilty to a count of disorderly conduct Friday after being charged in an incident with his wife the night the team got their Super Bowl rings last month.

Authorities allege the 25-year-old Underwood ripped a necklace off his wife, Brandie, and pushed her to the ground at their home following the June 16 ring ceremony.

Brandie Underwood has said the incident has been blown out of proportion and that's she's never been afraid of her husband even though she filed for divorce in May. She said earlier this month they are still living together and receiving counseling.

Underwood is scheduled to face trial on Sept. 26.

The Packers are aware of the incident, but have declined comment.
