Edmunds cleared the concussion protocol and is expected to play Sunday against the Jets. Edmunds is still officially considered questionable but should assume his usual starting role at middle linebacker. The Jets are likely to be without quarterback Sam Darnold (foot) and wide receiver Robby Anderson (ankle) --who are both considered doubtful -- in what is a solid matchup for the Buffalo defense.
Edmunds (concussion) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets. Edmunds was a limited participant at practice this week as he has yet to fully clear the concussion protocol. If the 20-year-old is unable to take the field Sunday, Julian Stanford should continue to work at middle linebacker for the Bills.
Edmunds (concussion) was listed as a limited participant at Thursday's practice. Edmunds is thought to be getting close to being game-ready, but he apparently still has one more step in the concussion protocol before he can be cleared for Sunday's contest against the Jets. Julian Stanford has performed capably in Edmunds' absence over the last game and a half, but the rookie's athleticism makes the Buffalo D that much more formidable, and he's instantly become a three-down asset.
Edmunds (concussion) will be a limited participant in Wednesday's practice session, Joe Buscaglia of WKBW.com reports. Edmunds was unable to practice at all last week, so his limited participation early in the week is a good sign that he's making some progress in the concussion protocol. He will need to gain full clearance from the league's protocol ahead of Sunday's game against the Jets if he is to return in Week 10.
Edmunds was second on the Bills with eight tackles (four solo) during Sunday's win over the Titans. He also had one pass defensed and a forced fumble. The first-round rookie almost never leaves the field and is starting to make his mark around the league as a high-level playmaker. Through five games, Edmunds already has 38 tackles to go with 1.0 sacks, five passes defensed and two forced fumbles. Edmunds sits 19th in standard scoring among linebackers; as he gets more familiar with the pro game, he's likely to work his way into a top-10 option for years. He's a super athlete with a longer-than-average reach that has a knack for the ball in a way we don't normally see out of players his size (6-foot-5, 250 pounds). Better to get in early than late in dynasty leagues that use IDPs.
