Tyrann Mathieu looked as if he was on the right track to getting back on the football field, but a recent arrest on a marijuana possession charge has put that in doubt. Mathieu already is missing his entire junior year, and it was a bit of a long shot for him to play again for LSU even before the arrest. Now he'll have to overcome questions surrounding his commitment to the game and his level of discipline if he wants to play at any college, much less in the NFL.
A future in college?
An NFL team might take a chance on Mathieu, but his chances of playing big-time college football again seem dim.
