Ward previously pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor assault and disturbing the peace charges for allegedly throwing a glass mug at a female bartender at PT’s All Nude Club in May.

Ward told the judge he understood the conditions of the program but said nothing else.

A judge will review the status of the case on Oct. 31.

The deal comes as the Broncos get ready for their preseason opener Thursday night against Seattle.
