Carney to train with Roosters on Friday

Errant Sydney Roosters star Todd Carney will resume training with the NRL club on Friday.

The Roosters released a statement on Thursday night to say the gifted five-eighth would join his teammates for a morning training session.

The club said it had consulted internally and from "key external professionals" before allowing him to return to the fray.

There was no indication given as to when he would return to play.

Carney, who admitted battling depression, was suspended indefinitely two weeks ago after it was revealed he had been out till the early hours of the morning drinking with teammate Anthony Watts,

Watts was later charged with assaulting his girlfriend in an unrelated incident to his night out with Carney.

Carney had promised to abstain from alcohol after he was charged with a drink driving offence in February.

He'd battled drinking and other problems while with the Canberra Raiders, sitting out a year of top-flight football before being thrown a life-line with the Roosters in 2010.

While out of the game in the last two weeks Carney had been receiving rehabilitation on his injured groin in order to get back to 100 per cent physical fitness.

Any return to the football field by Carney would also have to be approved by the NRL.
