Arizona Cardinals linebacker Daryl Washington has pleaded not guilty to charges accusing him of assaulting his ex-girlfriend, who authorities have said is the mother of his baby daughter.

Washington entered the plea Monday, said a Maricopa County Superior Court spokesman.

Washington is charged with aggravated assault and criminal trespass. He has been free since he posted $2,400 bond after being arrested May 3.

Phoenix police have said Washington's ex-girlfriend claimed he grabbed her by the throat  following an argument at her apartment.

Police said they got into a second fight in the parking lot, where she was pushed to the ground and broke her collarbone.

Court paperwork says the victim also threw a plastic plant at Washington, but missed.

Washington led the Cardinals with 134 tackles and nine sacks last season. He signed a six-year contract extension in September.

He was suspended for the first four games of the 2013 season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.
