Photo appears to show Ole Miss quatertback in room with marijuana
A photo appears to show Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly and several friends in a room with marijuana.
Chad Kelly has had off-the-field issues in the past. In fact, earlier this year, Kelly had to be restrained after running onto the field of a high school football game in which his little brother was the victim of a late hit.
Thursday night, Kelly's off-the-field image took another hit. A Snapchat photo, which appears to show him sitting at a table near marijuana, went viral. The Snapchat photo is captioned as "Blunts with chad kelly."
The Ole Miss quarterback suffered a torn ACL and torn lateral meniscus in the Rebels' win over Georgia Southern two weeks ago. The injury signaled the end of Kelly's collegiate career.
According to the Clarion Ledger, Kelly underwent surgery on Monday to repair the damage to his knee. Kelly started rehab this week in Pensacola, Florida.
While marijuana is becoming legal in many forms across the U.S., it's still banned when it comes to the NFL's drug policy.More from The Spun:
