Fairley’s court date pushed back until November

The Birmingham News reported Tuesday that Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley’s hearing for a marijuana possession charge has been delayed until November 27. This court date stems from Fairley’s April 3 arrest in Mobile, Alabama.

Fairley was also arrested for DUI and attempting to elude police on May 27. He’s already pleaded not guilty to those charges and has a trial date scheduled for August 14.

Fairley, who considers himself “a great guy … simple as that,” may stand an outside chance of avoiding league discipline to open the season following the delay of his marijuana case. If commissioner Roger Goodell is waiting for a conviction.

Goodell can also hand down suspensions without convictions, though, so Fairley is hardly in the clear just yet.

    Nicky loves puffing chron-chron. Even Saban passes the blunt when Nicky is in the building.

    Was in his car filled with dope smoke a week before training camp. Do the players even get drug tested anymore? He obviously wasn’t worried about it.
