Attorney: Ryan Leaf Will Face Charges Friday

Ryan Leaf's attorney says the former NFL quarterback is back in Texas and plans to surrender Friday on burglary and drug-related charges.

Bill Kelly said he was in court all day Thursday and couldn't get Leaf processed to face one count of burglary and eight drug-related counts associated with the painkiller Hydrocodone.

Leaf was indicted in May in Canyon, Texas, where he coached quarterbacks at West Texas A&M. He was arrested Wednesday in Washington state while returning from Canada and told authorities he planned to fly to Texas that night after posting bond.

Leaf was the No. 2 pick out of Washington State University in 1998. He was released by San Diego after three rough seasons and played part of one year with the Dallas Cowboys.
