Michael Vick is hoping to reduce his 23-month sentence on a federal dogfighting conviction.
His attorney says the suspended Atlanta Falcons quarterback has entered a drug treatment program at the U.S. Bureau of Prisons minimum security facility in Leavenworth, Kansas.
Vick was moved from Virginia to Kansas earlier today.
Vick tested positive for marijuana in September while he was on supervised release following his guilty plea. According to bureau policies, residential drug treatment programs take place in units set apart from the general prison population and lasting at least 500 hours over a six- to 12-month period.
If Vick is granted early release, he could be ready to play in the 2009 football season, but he is currently suspended without pay by the NFL.
