DALLAS (AP) - Former NFL wide receiver Sam Hurd is due in court accused of failing two drug tests months after being charged with trying to start a drug distribution network.

Hurd was arrested last December and accused of arranging large purchases of marijuana and cocaine. Immediately cut by the Chicago Bears, Hurd was eventually released on bond.

But 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 packed in a blue ice chest for $10,500 in May.

Hurd is to appear before a federal magistrate in Dallas Tuesday afternoon. Hurd has pleaded not guilty.

The San Antonio native is currently being held at a federal prison near Dallas.
