Goodell hasn't received Jolly's reinstatement application

Suspended Packers' defensive lineman Johnny Jolly has not applied to the NFL for reinstatement.

Commissioner Roger Goodell said Wednesday in Green Bay, where he visited camp and talked with coach Mike McCarthy and general manager Ted Thompson at the Packers' morning training camp practice, that Jolly wasn't under consideration for review of his indefinite suspension because the appropriate paperwork hasn't been filed.

Jolly said June 19 that he had applied for reinstatement to the NFL and had designs on rejoining the Packers if he's allowed back in the league this season.

Jolly was released from prison roughly six months into his six-year sentence for a drug conviction but received 10 years of "shock" probation by a judge.

Jolly, 29, is suspended indefinitely from the NFL. His contract with the Green Bay Packers was due to end after the 2011 season but the team still holds his rights.
