HOUSTON (AP) -Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Johnny Jolly Jr. faces a Sept. 16 court date on a felony drug possession charge, according to court records.
Jolly, 25, was arrested July 8 in Houston for possession of at least 200 grams of a controlled substance, a second-degree felony, according to court documents. He posted $10,000 bond and was released. He was originally due in court Wednesday, but that date was reset for next month.
Jolly has refused to discuss his legal situation or the possibility of a league suspension with reporters. On Wednesday, a person who answered the phone at the office of Brian Overstreet, Jolly's attorney, said Overstreet had no comment.
M from 2002-05. He finished his college career with 230 tackles, 6 1/2 sacks, 28 tackles for loss and 16 pass deflections. He was selected by the Packers in the sixth round of the 2006 NFL draft.
Jolly played in 10 games last season, recording 21 tackles. He injured his shoulder against Carolina on Nov. 18 and did not play the rest of the season.
Jolly has been the Packers' starting right defensive tackle for most of training camp. With the departure of Corey Williams in an offseason trade to Cleveland and injuries that have sidelined Ryan Pickett and Justin Harrell throughout camp, the Packers are counting heavily on Jolly going into the regular season.
