The defensive lineman was in uniform and practiced Tuesday during the first day of the Green Bay Packers minicamp. He's trying to regain a spot on the team after being suspended for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy and doing time in prison following multiple arrests for codeine possession. He was reinstated in March, and completed a court-ordered drug-rehabilitation program last month.
