Edmunds posted a season-high 12 tackles, a sack and an interception during Sunday's win over the Dolphins. The stats log -- as good as it is -- almost doesn't do justice to just how much Edmunds dominated the middle of the field in Week 17, as he was in the fray all afternoon. As expected, Edmunds was capable of taking on a bigger load following the season-ending injury to Matt Milano, finishing with 31 tackles in the three games Milano missed, a span during which he posted his two best tackle days of the season. Edmunds finishes his campaign with 121 tackles, 12 passes defensed, 2.0 sacks and two forced fumbles, all fantastic totals for a 20-year-old rookie and 17th best among all linebackers in standard IDP scoring. Given Edmunds' size, intelligence for the game and his role as a middle man for a defensive-oriented team, numbers like these should be the norm for a long time.
Edmunds recorded a season-high 11 tackles and one pass defensed in Buffalo's loss to New England on Sunday. Edmunds has started to accrue some of the tackles normally left to fellow starter Matt Milano, who's out for the season with a broken leg. He's picked up 19 tackles over the past two games without his defensive partner, as the rookie almost never takes a play off. He should be similarly busy in the finale against the Dolphins in Week 17.
Edmunds had 11 tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's 24-12 loss to the Patriots. Edmunds set a new career high in tackles, as he managed double-digit stops for the second time this season. The 20-year-old rookie leads the Bills in tackles with 109 (69 solo), and he also has two forced fumbles, a sack and an interception in 14 games.
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) 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.
