NEW YORK -- The National Football League has suspended Packers' defensive lineman Johnny Jolly indefinitely without pay for violating the league's substances abuse policy.

Jolly's suspension takes effect immediately and will last through at least the entire 2010 season. He will be eligible to apply for reinstatement after Super Bowl XLV.

The 27-year-old recorded 39 tackles, one sack and one interception last season as he started all 16 regular season games.

During his four-year career, all with the Packers, he has totaled 113 stops and a pair of sacks in 48 games, including 39 starts.

Green Bay selected Jolly in the sixth round of the 2006 NFL Draft out of Texas A&M.
