DALLAS (AP) Former NFL wide receiver Sam Hurd is scheduled to appear in federal court in Dallas to face new drug charges.
His young career was brought to a halt in December when he was arrested and accused of trying to buy cocaine and marijuana last season.
He's due in court Wednesday afternoon to plead to a new indictment with charges related to his time out on bail earlier this year. Hurd is accused of trying to have a cousin arrange a deal for 5 kilograms of cocaine and 200 pounds of marijuana.
The 27-year-old Hurd is being held in federal prison near Dallas.
His cousin, Jesse Tyrone Chavful, and an alleged co-conspirator, Toby Lujan, have signed guilty plea agreements.
