DALLAS (AP) — A judge has ordered former NFL WR Sam Hurd jailed indefinitely for allegedly failing drug tests and attempting to arrange a drug deal while out on bond facing charges of trying to start a marijuana and cocaine distribution network.

Hurd's bond was revoked by U.S. Magistrate Jeff Kaplan on Tuesday during a hearing attended by former teammate Marion Barber and several family members.

Hurd was arrested last December and immediately cut by the Chicago Bears.

After his release on bond, he was re-arrested this month after authorities said he tested positive for marijuana in May and July. Prosecutors say Hurd's cousin, Jesse Tyrone Chavful, also admitted to selling Hurd 30 pounds of marijuana for $10,500 in May.
