RICHMOND, Va. -- Suspended NFL star Michael Vick has returned to a federal prison in Kansas after a stint in Virginia for his bankruptcy case.

The U.S. Bureau of Prisons Web site showed Thursday that Vick was back in prison in Leavenworth, Kan., where he's been serving 23 months for bankrolling a dogfighting ring.

Vick was held in a local jail in Virginia for several days 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.

Vick made temporary stops in federal prisons in Petersburg, Va., and Atlanta before returning to Leavenworth.

According to the Web site, Vick is scheduled to be released July 20.
