Antavian Edison, the leading returning wide receiver on the Purdue University football team and a Fort Myers native, will not face a felony weapons charge.

Devon Edison, Antavian’s uncle, sat in the passenger’s seat, according to the report, and was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
