12/20/2013 11:13:00 AM
Description: Packers DL Johnny Jolly has a neck injury (bulging disc) and is done for the season, according to a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel report.
Insight: Jolly's injury could be career threatening. The improvement of rookie Josh Boyd will help cover the loss of Jolly.
 
7/26/2010 12:15:00 PM
Description: Peter King of SI.com thinks Jolly's legal troubles make it likely he'll never play in the NFL again.
Insight: Jolly is facing felony drug charges, and is suspended for at least the entire 2010 season. He would have been an important part of the Packers' defensive line rotation. (SportsBuff.com)
 
7/16/2010 5:02:00 PM
Description: Greg Bedard of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports, via Twitter, that the NFL has suspended Jolly indefinitely.
Insight: Jolly's suspension will last all of 2010, at least. He is facing trial on a felony drug possession charge on July 30, so this is not a surprise. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: Packers DL Johnny Jolly has been suspended indefinitely, including at least all of the 2010 season, because of a looming felony drug possession charge. SOURCE: TWITTER
Insight: The Packers already promoted Ryan Pickett to the starting lineup knowing Jolly likely wasn't going to play much, or at all, this year. They also drafted Mike Neal and C.J. Wilson in this year's draft. It's a bit surprising that the NFL didn't wait for a conviction before handing down the suspension.
 
6/21/2010 12:53:00 PM
Description: ESPN.com reports Jolly will not be attending Packers' mandatory minicamp this weeking due to a looming felony drug possession charge.
Insight: Jolly's trial is set for July 30, which is the day the Packers report to training camp. He is facing league discipline, so the team should get used to being without him. (SportsBuff.com)
 
6/7/2010 3:15:00 PM
Description: Greg Bedard of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports, via Twitter, that Jolly's felony drug case has been rescheduled for July 30.
Insight: July 30 is the same day the Packers are scheduled to report for training camp. Jolly was originally indicted in October 2008 and his trial has been pushed back numerous times. His availability for the 2010 season is in doubt. (SportsBuff.com)
 
6/1/2010 2:45:00 PM
Description: The Green Bay Press Gazette reports Jolly's jury trial for felony drug charges has been postponed again.
Insight: Jolly's trial was originally re-scheduled for Tuesday, but now it will be postponed for the third time. He was originally indicted in October of 2008. (SportsBuff.com)
 
3/26/2010 10:41:00 AM
Description: The Green Bay Press Gazette reports Jolly will stand trial on May 21 in connection with his 2008 arrest for possession of 200 grams of codeine.
Insight: Jolly could face up to 20 years in prison if convicted, but his lack of a criminal record could lead to a much lighter sentence. (SportsBuff.com)
 
3/8/2010 3:41:00 PM
Description: The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports Jolly's pre-trial hearing on felony drug possession charges has been postponed to March 25.
Insight: Jolly's attorney reportedly intends to take the case to a formal trial at some point, but a trial date won't be determined until the pre-trial hearing moves forward. (SportsBuff.com)
 
2/18/2010 3:43:00 PM
Description: The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that Jolly's pre-trial hearing has been postponed to March 8.
Insight: Jolly was arrested in July of 2008 for possession of over 200 grams of codeine in the form of cough syrup. He is scheduled to become a restricted free agent as well. (SportsBuff.com)
 
Cold7/17/2009 10:49:00 AM
Description: Although the case against Jolly in possession of 200 g of codeine was dropped by the Harris County District Attorney's office, the case is expected to be refiled after lab technicians become proficient with a new piece of lab equipment that measures codeine.
Insight: All of that probably equals at least a suspension for the 325 lb Jolly. This may lead to an increase in initial playing time for rookie B.J. Raji. (SportsBuff.com)
