RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Suspended NFL star Michael Vick has begun the third leg of his trip back to a federal penitentiary in Kansas.

The U.S. Bureau of Prisons Web site showed Tuesday that Vick has left the federal prison in Atlanta.

Vick was held in a local jail for several days after he was brought to Newport News to testify at his bankruptcy hearing earlier this month. A judge threw out Vick's bankruptcy plan.

The judge also rejected an effort to keep Vick in the area while he works on a new bankruptcy plan, clearing the way for his return to Leavenworth, Kan., where he is serving 23 months for bankrolling a dogfighting ring. Vick has since made temporary stops in federal prisons in Petersburg, Va., and Atlanta.
