A federal judge has ordered 27-year-old, Sam Hurd to be jailed indefinitely for failing two drug tests and allegedly buying drugs while already facing charges he tried to distribute marijuana and cocaine.

Hurd was arrested in December after allegedly accepting cocaine from an undercover agent at a suburban Chicago steakhouse.

The wide receiver was an up and coming player for the Cowboys before being traded to the Bears last year.
