When Will Ishmael Adams Return?

Sep. 22 -- It's now not possible for Ishmael Adams to be charged for a felony in his incident with an Uber driver. So when will he return to the team?

It's still uncertain when Ishmael Adams will be able to return to the UCLA football team, according to sources close to the situation. 

The case has been handed to the City Attorney's office to be considered for misdemeanor filing, which means felony charges are no longer an option.

Adams was originally arrested and charged after an incident August 30th with an Uber driver on UCLA's campus.  He has since been suspended from the football team.    

UCLA's long-held policy was that a player could be on the team if he was facing a misdemeanor charge.  The source indicated that it was up to UCLA on whether Adams' punishment of missing the first three games is adequate or whether the University will want more. 

The source expected UCLA administration to make a decision on Adams very soon and speculated that the best-case scenario would be a return in time for the Arizona game this weekend, but more than likely Adams would return next week for the home game against Arizona State. 

Here are details on the Adams case from a BRO Message Board poster very close to the situation.
