CHICAGO (AP) — The NFL says it is not aware of other players involved in the federal drug case against former Dallas Cowboy and current Chicago Bears wide receiver Sam Hurd.

League spokesman Brian McCarthy said Friday that the NFL is closely monitoring the case. Asked about a report that authorities have a list of NFL players with a connection to Hurd, McCarthy said: “We are not aware of such a list.”

Hurd was arrested Wednesday night after authorities said he agreed to buy a kilogram, or 2.2 pounds, of cocaine from an undercover agent. A criminal complaint says Hurd, a sixth-year player in his first year with the Bears, wanted to set up a drug-distribution network in the Chicago area.

General manager Jerry Angelo said Friday that the team has cut the 26-year-old Hurd, who was in his first year with the Bears and sixth year overall in the NFL.
