Packers' Jolly suspended by NFL

Green Bay Packers defensive end Johnny Jolly was suspended indefinitely without pay for violating the league's substance-abuse policy, the NFL announced Friday.

Jolly's suspension begins immediately and will continue through at least the 2010 season. He will be eligible to apply for reinstatement following Super Bowl XLV.

"Johnny is a good player that loves everything about the game of football," the Packers said in a statement. "We appreciate the contributions he has made to the Packers the past four seasons. His focus and priorities now lie elsewhere –- our thoughts are with him during this difficult personal time."

Jolly, 27, is scheduled to go to trial at the end of July in Houston following a 2008 arrest for illegally possessing at least 200 grams of codeine. If convicted, Jolly faces up to 20 years in prison.

Codeine is among the banned substances the NFL tests for, according to league spokesman Greg Aiello.

A four-year veteran, Jolly has started every game for the Packers over the last two seasons, recording 88 tackles, one sack and an interception in that time.

I guess he's not so Jolly anymore...
that's unfortunate
Fu*k da fudgePackers.
Big loss for Green Bay, but they have built great depth, they'll be fine.

Everyone thought they were screwed when they lost Kampman and Harris, but guys stept in and they moved right long. They've done an outstanding job building threw the draft.
