LOS ANGELES — Tony Edwards will be informed Tuesday that he is free to return to the football field, his parents announced on Thursday.
Edwards, who turns 18 on April 30, was arrested last month on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, driving while suspended, driving with a suspended license, possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana.
He was released on $3,000 bail on April 26.
The Chargers will pay Edwards $3 million over the next two seasons, according to league rules, and the NFLPA is negotiating a settlement with the team.
The NFL announced on Wednesday that Edwards, who turned 19 last month, will be eligible to return at season’s end.
He will have the opportunity to start at safety for the Chargers next season, although the team has not ruled out keeping him at safety.
