Defensive tackle Johnny Jolly could start for the Green Bay Packers today against San Francisco.
Jolly was suspended by the NFL for three years for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy. The 30-year-old defensive tackle will likely finish his comeback story by starting in today's game.
The story was first reported by NFL reporter Jason Cole.
It was deemed a success in its own right when Jolly made the Packers' 53-man roster after sitting out three seasons. Now he has a great chance to step foot on the field as a starter.
