Suspended NFL player arrested on drug charge

From Comcast SportsNet HOUSTON (AP) -- Suspended Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Johnny Jolly has been arrested and charged with drug possession and tampering with evidence. Jolly remained in the Harris County jail Monday after being charged Saturday with possession of a compound containing codeine. Records show he also was charged with attempting to conceal the substance from investigators. A Harris County sheriff's spokeswoman said no attorney was listed for Jolly and that a bond had not been set. Jolly received probation in April after pleading guilty to a 2008 charge of possessing codeine. The deal allowed a similar charge from March to be dropped. Jolly grew up in Houston and attended Texas A&M. He was suspended indefinitely by the NFL in July 2010 and did not play for the Packers during their Super Bowl-winning season.

The Cubs optioned Tommy La Stella to Triple-A Iowa on Friday, making room for Chris Coghlan, who was activated off the disabled list ahead of Friday’s series-opener against the Mariners at Wrigley Field.

Coghlan was the team’s starting left fielder and leadoff hitter for Friday afternoon’s contest.

Coghlan returns after a 26-day stay on the disabled list. The Cubs reacquired him this season after he played in 148 games for the team last season. In 19 games with the North Siders in 2016, Coghlan is batting .194/.356/.306 with seven hits in 45 plate appearances.

After missing nearly a month with an injury of his own, La Stella played in 13 games during the month of July. On the season, La Stella is hitting .295/.388/.457 with nine doubles, a pair of home runs and 14 runs scored.
