Former Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Henry Ruggs III had a preliminary hearing scheduled for this Wednesday. However, it has been rescheduled. 

This is the fifth time that Ruggs' preliminary hearing has been moved to a later date. 

The new date for Ruggs' preliminary hearing is Oct. 12, according to

Ruggs, a former first-round pick, was involved in a fatal car crash last November. He has been charged with two counts of reckless driving resulting in death or substantial bodily harm and possession of a gun under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Ruggs' preliminary hearing has been delayed because attorneys are still waiting for the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department's final report.

"What I’ve been told by the sitting detective is that it’s the longest and most comprehensive report he’s ever done," Chief Deputy District Attorney Eric Bauman said. 

We'll have a new update on Ruggs' situation next month.
