Edmonds notched two carries for seven yards during Sunday's 26-14 loss at Kansas City. Yet again, Edmonds did little more than spell David Johnson, who accounted for 183 yards from scrimmage and both of the Cardinals' touchdowns on the afternoon. To make matters worse, Edmonds wasn't the most productive reserve running back. That honor went to T.J. Logan, who hauled in both of his targets for 14 yards on three offensive snaps. Sure, Edmonds handled 17 such snaps, but his outlook appears barren due to the amount of volume taken on by Johnson.
Edmonds took two carries for nine yards and corralled one of two passes for 12 yards during Sunday's 18-15 victory against the 49ers. After going five games without a catch, Edmonds has been involved as a receiver the last two weeks, helping him post exactly 21 yards from scrimmage in back-to-back contests. In the wake of working under a new offensive coordinator, his touch count didn't waver from its typical handful, so the rookie running back isn't much more than a David Johnson handcuff at the moment.
Edmonds totaled five carries for nine yards and three catches (on three targets) for 12 yards during Thursday's 45-10 loss to the Broncos. In what quickly became a blowout, the Cardinals gave Edmonds his most run of the season -- 22 snaps on offense -- which he turned into his second-most yards from scrimmage (21) as a professional. The Cardinals axed offensive coordinator Mike McCoy on Friday, so it remains to be seen if Edmonds' workload will be little more than scraps left behind by starter David Johnson, or something more. At the very least, Edmonds' do-it-all skill set allows him to get involved in all aspects of the offense.
Edmonds played four of 58 offensive snaps during Sunday's 27-17 defeat in Minnesota. Edmonds had a semi-promising start to his rookie campaign, combining for 68 yards from scrimmage on 14 touches over the first two games. However, in four games in the interim, he's mustered 14 yards on 10 carries and hasn't been targeted. With David Johnson handling his usual workhorse role, Edmonds hasn't been afforded much of an opportunity lately to replicate his early-season success.
Edmonds (back) is officially active for Sunday's game at Minnesota. Edmonds received the questionable tag after being added to the injury report Friday, but he's well enough to give it a go Sunday. The 22-year-old should serve his usual role behind workhorse David Johnson, who has dominated the touches out of Arizona's backfield.
