LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- A trial has been rescheduled for a former University of Kansas football player accused of robbery.

Chris Martin was scheduled to appear in Douglas County court for trial Monday. His case has been moved to March 3.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/18tRD5k ) Martin faces one count of aggravated robbery in a May 13 armed robbery during a home invasion in Lawrence. Martin's free on a $35,000 bond.

Martin was dismissed from the KU football program in June. The program recruited Martin as a four-star defensive end, but he never played a game for the Jayhawks. His lawyer didn't immediately return a message seeking comment.

Another former Kansas football player, Jeremiah Edwards, was sentenced to three years of probation for his part in the robbery.
