Packers' Jolly faces March trial on drug charge


HOUSTON (AP) -- Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Johnny Jolly Jr. faces a trial in March on a felony drug-possession charge.

  Jolly appeared in a pretrial motion hearing Tuesday in Houston.

  He had the option of entering a plea or reaching a plea agreement, but it appears he and his attorney intend to take the case to trial.

  George Flynn is a spokesman for Houston's district attorney.

  He says the judge set a tentative trial date of March 27.

  Jolly was arrested this summer in Houston for alleged possession of at least 200 grams of the painkiller codeine, a second-degree felony.

  His attorney didn't immediately return a message Wednesday.
