The Steelers signed Edmunds to a reserve/future contract Friday. Earlier this week, Edmunds agreed on an injury settlement with the Steelers and was cut. The running back will hope to see more offensive snaps in his return to Pittsburgh next season after appearing in four games this year.
The Steelers waived Edmunds (hamstring) off injured reserve Tuesday. Edmunds reached an injury settlement with the Steelers in order to be cut loose. The 26-year-old suited up in four games for the team in 2020, but he didn't record a touch over seven offensive snaps.
Edmunds (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports. Edmunds was first reported as having a hamstring issue last Wednesday, and now he will be sidelined for at least three games given his transition to IR. Pittsburgh may have been evaluating Edmunds in recent days to determine if a shift to IR was necessary, but the team seemingly believes his injury is not short-term in nature. Edmunds has suited up for four games in 2020, with only seven combined offensive snaps to his name over those appearances.
Edmunds (hamstring) was a non-participant at Tuesday's practice. The 25-year-old sat out Sunday's win over the Jaguars due to the hamstring issue, and he's been sidelined for the first two practices of the week. Edmunds likely will need to practice in some capacity Wednesday to have a chance of suiting up for the Thanksgiving Day matchup with Baltimore.
Edmunds (hamstring) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Jaguars, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports. Edmunds and Jaylen Samuels (quadricep) were both sidelined during practice all week, and neither will play Sunday, leaving James Conner, Benny Snell and Anthony McFarland as the only healthy running backs for Pittsburgh. Edmunds' status is uncertain for Week 12 as well with a Thursday night game versus the Ravens on deck.
