Johnny Jolly will likely start for Packers today

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.
