Johnny Jolly's Suspension Is For Violating The NFL's Substance Abuse Policy

Complete details of Johnny Jolly's suspension haven't surfaced but Jason La Canfora of NFL Network has a few to offer up:

Packers DL Johnny Jolly suspended at least thru 2010 for violating subatance abuse policy. He's facing trial on drug charges

At this point, ti's not clear if Jolly's suspension is directly related to his trial or not.  Violating the substance abuse policy could mean failing one of the NFL's drug tests. The prosecution in the drug charges intend to prove he "bought, sold, funded, transported and aided in the buying, selling, funding and transportation of illegal narcotics including cocaine and marijuana" in Harris County from 2006 through May 2008.

Meanwhile, La Canfora wonders whether this might be the end for Jolly.

Legal charges still pending and you have to wonder if this is the end for Jolly in the NFL. Time, and the legal system, will tell
