Cornett was held in Monroe County Jail on a probation violation and is scheduled to appear in court Thursday. He is on probation stemming from a December 2013 arrest for reckless driving. 

Cornett played in 11 games last season, mostly on special teams. He was expected to compete for playing time this year.
