SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Prosecutors have again postponed a court hearing involving San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Ray McDonald in connection with his arrest on suspicion of domestic violence.

The Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office announced Friday on Twitter that McDonald's court hearing Monday is delayed as an investigation continues. Prosecutors say there will be no new court date unless or until any charges are filed.

Prosecutors also delayed a scheduled Sept. 15 hearing.

McDonald is out on $25,000 bail following his Aug. 31 arrest at his San Jose home, where he was celebrating his 30th birthday with teammates and friends.

Police said the alleged victim had "visible injuries." McDonald lives at the home with his fiancee.

McDonald is expected to play against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. Several prominent politicians in California have called on the team to bench McDonald because of the allegations.
