Linebacker Erik Walden has apologized to the Green Bay Packers organization, his teammates and fans in the wake of his recent arrest on suspicion of domestic violence.
Walden says he is cooperating with the legal process and is sorry that he ''brought something negative from so much positive that's going on'' with the Packers.
Walden's status for Sunday's game at the New York Giants remains unclear, and Walden says he ''absolutely'' is resigned to the possibility that he may not be allowed to play. Packers coach Mike McCarthy is scheduled to speak to reporters Wednesday.
Walden spent the weekend in jail after he was arrested Friday on suspicion of assaulting his girlfriend at their apartment near Green Bay.
Brown County District Attorney John Zakowski said Monday that Walden's girlfriend originally told police they were arguing and he pushed her, but she has changed her story to say she hit him first.
