Kareem Copeland of the Green Bay Press-Gazette is reporting on his Twitter feed that Johnny Jolly has been suspended indefinitely and can apply for reinstatement after Super Bowl XLV.

Needless to say, this is a big blow to the Packers' defense. Hope Mike Neal is ready for prime time and Justin Harrell can stay healthy.

Well, Jolly was effectively removed from the starting lineup (the starting line will be Pickett/Raji/Jenkins) but Jolly was going to be a big part of that rotation and now there's nothing but question marks there and depth is paper thin.

WHAT!! What a douchebag. I could scream at him. Yeah it happened at a good time, and yeah he isn't a starter, but CRAP. What a douchebag..

I think he only got benched because the pack knew he was getting suspended...I bet Raji or Pickett would be rotated in if jolly was able to play. That's too bad he's a dumbass off the field, cuz he's an underrated, good starter on the D-line.

Goodbye proven D-line depth...damn. I was afraid the D-line was gonna take a step back this year.

I think it really did. I think TT should just sign someone, because with him out, the depth takes a considerable hit.

I wouldn't panic. Losing Jolly is something the Packers expected. Apparently this has nothing to do with his court case, but a positive drug test that was related to his arrest. In other words, this idiot couldn't stay clean even though he was awaiting trial. It explains the Pickett move, which I think we all figured out. Also with the way Ted drafted, he wasn't expecting to have Jolly. I'd say his career is probably over, definitely in Green Bay. Our depth is still good, as long as the rookies can contribute, along with Wynn and Harrell.

Judging from the understanding and conciliatory nature of Ted Thompson's statement, it sounds like Jolly has an addiction problem. Codeine is a very addictive drug, which isn't really coming up in the discussions of the Purple Drank. It is akin to heroin addiction for some users.

I think the suspension is the right call, and that it's not a huge loss. We drafted Mike Neal and CJ Wilson for exactly this reason. Raji is the starting nose and Pickett moved to end opposite Jenkins. I think we'll be more than fine.

I'm not panicking but he would have been great to have in the rotation. Well, good riddance I guess. I shouldn't say good riddance, but goodbye with no tears.

I agree. He played big last season, though he did do somethings that cost us greatly. The head butt costing us 15 yards against the Vikings comes to mind. But a turd is a turd, and I'll be glad to flush him. No more distraction there.

Here's what gets me- Repeat offender Bryant McKinnie takes a pipe to a guys head and resists arrest, but only gets 4 games?

And that is they key word. DISTRACTION. How you can be one in Green Bay, Wisconsin is beyond me, but whatever. A minor loss, but depth is depth. Oh well, I'm past it thanks to you guys. Just know that this thread is on speed-dial when the season starts.

Jolly's problems were always in Houston, his hometown. The Packers tried to get Jolly to stay in Green Bay, they feared what would happen in Houston because of the ghetto crowd Jolly ran with in college. Don't forget, he already served a four game suspension for subtance abuse, so the one year suspension was automatic. What a waste, some folks thought Jolly had pro bowl potential coming out of college, but he was always a risky proposition. There were drug issues in his past, both using and selling. The DA in Houston has a jailhouse snitch who's painted Jolly as a drug kingpin in the area. They fully intend on sending him to prison for a long, long time.

He might get a year max. That is based on nothing but my opinion thought. I keep forgetting he got popped in Houston, not GB. Was it him or Underwood that got in some trouble in GB?

Underwood got in trouble down in the Dells after a golf outing.

How is it that more football players get in trouble at/during/after golf outings????? If I got in that much trouble while playing golf, I wouldn't get to play as much, or I would be divorced.

Actually there is a bar by a golf course back home called the 19th green. Or as I will call it from now on, Underwoods...
