Jolly will participate in camp
Defensive tackle will participate as normal during training camp with the Green Bay Packers despite charges for felony drug possession in Texas including having 200 grams of codeine.

General manager Ted Thompson reportedly said that Jolly will participate and will attend court proceedings in Houston when necessary.

Thompson is quoted as saying in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, "I think we'll let the court take its course. I think that's the appropriate thing."

Unfortunately, the NFL probably won't make a ruling on whether Jolly is suspended or not until after his Aug. 27 court date, which is during the last week of training camp right before the regular season begins.

The Packers likely will have to base Jolly's playing time assuming he'll be suspended. I believe the first offender's suspension length is four games. If Jolly isn't suspended, all the better for the Packers, but right now that's probably what they have to base their thinking off of.

Unless new issues come to light, Jolly will definitely play this season. He'll likely just be suspended for a maximum of four games.
