(Newser) – The hits—of the self-inflicted variety—just keep coming for Michael Vick, who tested positive for marijuana in a sample submitted two weeks after entering a plea deal on felony dog-fighting charges. The suspended NFL quarterback will be confined to his home from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m., wear a monitoring device, and undergo counseling, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Vick, who reached a plea agreement on federal dog-fighting charges in August, was indicted yesterday in Virginia on two state charges related to dog fighting. His arraignment in that case is slated for Oct. 3; he's to be sentenced Dec. 10 in the federal case, in which he faces up to five years in prison.
