GREEN BAY, Wis. — The NFL has suspended Green Bay Packers defensive tackle Johnny Jolly without pay for the upcoming season and perhaps beyond for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
The league says Jolly's suspension begins immediately and will continue through at least the 2010 season. He will be eligible to apply for reinstatement after the Super Bowl.
Jolly is facing drug charges in Houston after his July 2008 arrest outside a club allegedly for illegally possessing at least 200 grams of codeine. If convicted, Jolly faces up to 20 years in prison.
