Colt Lyerla’s circuitous path to an NFL roster has suddenly become a bit more convoluted.
According to the Oregonian, tight end Colt Lyerla was arrested in Oregon for during under the influence of intoxicants. Lyerla was reportedly suspected of being “high on either illegal drugs or prescription medication” when he was pulled over.
Lyerla recently received an injury settlement from the Packers, due to a knee injury suffered during camp. He’ll be paid by the Packers through Week Eight.
Undrafted not due to talent but due to a variety of off-field issues, Lyerla has the talent. But he may not get a chance to display that talent any time soon.
