Packers defensive lineman Johnny Jolly, who was arrested last week for felony possession of codeine, is still in jail in Houston.
A Harris County judge rejected Jolly’s request for bond, which means he’ll remain in jail until his scheduled appearance in court on Wednesday at the earliest.
Last week’s arrest was Jolly’s second for possession of codeine. He was able to enter a diversion program after the first arrest, allowing him to avoid being prosecuted, but the prosecutor in the case told the Green Bay Press-Gazette that last week’s arrest will be considered a violation of that agreement.
Jolly was suspended for the entire 2010 season because of the previous case, and he has not been reinstated yet. Although Packers coach Mike McCarthy has said Jolly is in the team’s plans, it seems awfully unlikely that we’ll see Jolly in an NFL uniform in 2011.
