CANYON, Texas (AP) - Ryan Leaf's lawyer says the indicted former NFL quarterback will surrender on drug and burglary charges in Texas.

Bill Kelly told The Associated Press late Thursday that Leaf is "not a fugitive from justice" and will return next week.

Prosecutor Lacy Miller says a warrant was issued May 20 when Leaf was indicted. Miller says Leaf has been working in British Columbia.

The ex-Washington State University and San Diego Chargers quarterback is charged with burglary to a habitation. Leaf also was indicted on seven counts of obtaining a controlled substance by fraud and one count of delivery of a simulated controlled substance.

Leaf coached quarterbacks at West Texas A&M in Canyon, where the indictment was returned.
