Jefferson, 22, has been free on $5,000 bond for more than a year since being charged with simple battery in a preseason bar fight last August.
He and three other former LSU players were arrested on marijuana charges last week.
The judge in the case revokes bond routinely when a defendant is re-arrested.
He ordered Jefferson to undergo substance abuse evaluation before reappearing in his court this week.
A Dec. 12 arraignment is set in the dope case for Jefferson, Tyrann Mathieu and two others.
