Packers starting ROLB Erik Walden has been released after spending the weekend in jail.

Walden was arrested Friday on suspicion of assaulting his girlfriend at their apartment near Green Bay. Court was closed for the holiday weekend. Walden was released Monday on a $1,000 signature bond. Local authorities revealed that Walden's girlfriend was treated for a head laceration at a Green Bay hospital.

Brown County District Attorney John Zakowski says Walden's girlfriend has changed her story, and that more interviews need to be conducted before he decides if charges will be filed against Walden.

The 26-year-old Walden has started every game so far this season. He had a team-leading eight tackles with two QB hits in the Packers' Thanksgiving Day win over the division-rival Lions.
