'Honey Badger' reportedly at Houston rehab clinic
Former LSU star Tyrann Mathieu has entered a drug rehabilitation program in Houston since being dismissed from the Tigers, The Associated Press is reporting this morning, citing a television report. Mathieu's adoptive father, Tyrone Mathieu, tells New Orleans' Fox 8 that the 20-year-old star cornerback and punt returner known as the "Honey Badger" has been at the Right Step recovery center and is being counseled by former NBA player John Lucas. Tyrone Mathieu says his son is committed to restoring his health and won't play football until he is confident that his rehab is complete. No one from Mathieu's family appeared on camera in the New Orleans television report. As of this morning, Lucas has returned a call from The Associated Press. Meanwhile, CBSSports.com columnist Bruce Feldman is reporting "a source close to Mathieu" tells him that Mathieu's issue was with marijuana, not any other drug. His report says there was a fear, however, among those close to Mathieu that he might move on to heavier drugs. Read the full AP story here, and Feldman's report here.
