EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — A judge has denied former Oregon tight end Colt Lyerla's request to train in Las Vegas for next year's NFL draft while he is awaiting trial on a drug charge in Oregon.

Lyerla is facing a felony cocaine possession charge stemming from an arrest on Oct. 23. Lane County Circuit Court judge Jay McAlpin on Tuesday denied Lyerla's request to live and train under Dwight Ross of Performance Athletics in Nevada.

Lyerla announced he was leaving Oregon on Oct. 6 after a one-game suspension for violating unspecified team rules.

He declined to enter the Drug Court program, which gives offenders a chance to have their charges dismissed if they complete treatment for addiction, and efforts since to settle the case have been unsuccessful. The two sides meet again on Dec. 27.
