Edwards was claimed off waivers by the Colts, Mike Chappell of IndySportsCentral.com reports. In a surprising move, Edwards was waived by the Panthers on Tuesday despite the fact that his one sack on the year is more than both of Carolina's starting defensive ends combined (0.5 between Charles Johnson and Kony Ealy). Nonetheless, the hybrid linebacker/defensive end will now provide the Colts with depth at a few spots on defense.
Edwards was waived by the Bills on Friday, BuffaloBills.com reports. Edwards hasn't played since 2014, when he was with the Cowboys for four games. He was competing for a backup position on the defensive line before being cut.
The Cowboys activated defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence from injured reserve Saturday, waiving defensive end Lavar Edwards in a corresponding move. Lawrence suffered a fractured foot in late July and started the season on short-term injured reserve, placing Week 9 as his earliest possible return date. The rookie defensive end returned to practice in mid-October and should be available for Sunday's matchup with the Cardinals.
The Cowboys announced a pair of roster moves on Friday, according to the Dallas Morning News. The team re-signed defensive end Lavar Edwards and waived linebacker Korey Toomer.
The following players have been ruled inactive for the Cowboys Week 5 at home against Houston: LB Bruce Carter, QB Dustin Vaughan, OT Donald Hawkins, DE Lavar Edwards, LB Korey Toomer, DT Davon Coleman and DT Ken Bishop.
