Nick Fairley Has Court Date Set For July 31

Detroit Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley was scheduled to be arraigned on Monday morning for his second-degree marijuana possession charge stemming from a police stop back in early April. The arraignment was adjourned, however. Fairley's lawyer requested more time to review the case, and he was granted the adjournment as a result.

Fairley now has a court date set for July 31. It's unclear if this will conflict with training camp since the schedule isn't out yet, but typically camp begins in late July. It's also unclear if Fairley is at risk of being suspended by the NFL, but his lawyer said on Monday that Fairley is already taking part in the league's substance-abuse program.

Harrell told the judge that the 24-year old is currently in a first step substance-abuse program with the NFL and that he has passed a drug test since his arrest.

Last week, Mikel Leshoure pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge and was fined $575.
