Mathieu Enters Rehab In Houston

Fox 8 in New Orleans reported the latest Tyrann Mathieu news late Thursday night:  Mathieu has entered a drug rehab program in Houston.  At Right Step Recovery rehabilitation center, former NBA player John Lucas is reportedly treating him.

Mathieu's father Tyrone says his son is committed to getting healthy and won't return to football until his rehab is complete.  This rehab process will make it very unlikely that Tyrann will play this season.

Len Elmore, another former NBA star who knows Lucas has faith that he will be able to help Mathieu get his life back on track:

"John keeps it real and no one can better articulate what it means to stay on the right path than someone who has veered from that path, found their way and gotten back on."
