  • Seahawks' Mario Edwards: Two sacks with Seahawks

    Edwards (knee) recorded 21 tackles (15 solo), two sacks, a pass breakup and a forced fumble across 15 games during the 2023 regular season. Edwards missed the final two games with a knee injury, but there isn't any indication at this time that it'll be a long-term issue. The 30-year-old defensive end will be an unrestricted free agent in March and could move onto his fourth team in four years. He'll be a rotational lineman wherever he ends up.

  • Titans' Mario Edwards: Inactive against Texans

    Edwards (coach's decision) is inactive for Saturday's game against the Texans, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. Edwards was signed by the Titans in Week 3 and has been active in every game since. However, his role has slipped in recent games as Tennessee's defensive line has gotten healthier, which leaves Edwards as the odd-man out in Week 16.

  • Bears' Mario Edwards: Logs full practice

    Edwards (ribs) logged a full practice Thursday. Edwards missed each of Chicago's last two games and logged a limited session Wednesday, so the latest development is an encouraging sign ahead of his potential availability for Sunday's game against the Packers. Edwards has seven tackles (two solo), 1.5 sacks and one pass defended through eight appearances in 2021.

  • Bears' Mario Edwards: Out Week 12 with rib injury

    Edwards is inactive for Thursday's game against the Lions due to a rib injury. Listed as questionable heading into the day, Edwards was listed as a full participant on the Bears' first two practice reports of the week before downgrading to limited activity Wednesday. The step back in terms of on-field reps looks like it was enough to keep Edwards sidelined for the first time since Week 2. When healthy, Edwards has filled a minor rotational role along the defensive line, as he's played no more than 40 percent of the defensive snaps in any of his eight appearances.

    Edwards posted two solo tackles and a sack in Sunday's 26-6 loss to the Browns. It was a long afternoon for the Bears, but Edwards managed to notch a sack in his season debut. However, Edwards played just 26 percent of the snaps, so we can't count on him for IDP purposes.

  • Bears' Mario Edwards: Ready for Week 4

    Edwards (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Colts. Edwards was a late addition to the injury report Saturday and was listed as questionable, but he'll be available for Sunday's contest. The 26-year-old has played only 22 defensive snaps in the past two games and is unlikely to play a major role versus Indianapolis.

  • Bears' Mario Edwards: Finds new home

    Edwards inked a contract with the Bears on Sunday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. The 2015 second-round pick was released by the Saints on Saturday despite appearing in 14 games with the squad during the 2019 campaign. Edwards will likely get a chance to see the field right away for Week 1, especially considering Eddie Goldman has opted out for the season and Akiem Hicks (quadriceps) is dealing with injury. Last season, Edwards logged just eight tackles (two solo), three sacks and a forced fumble.

  • Raiders' Mario Edwards: Suffers right ankle injury

    Edwards has a right ankle injury and is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. Edwards rotates with Denico Autry at defensive end opposite of Khalil Mack, so Autry will take a bulk of the snaps if Edwards can't return. It's a troubling sign for the Raiders' defensive line, though, as they only have five healthy men to fill four spots.

  • Raiders' Mario Edwards: Half sack in win

    Edwards recorded five tackles (four solo) and 0.5 sacks in Sunday's 27-24 win over the Dolphins. Edwards was dealing with a back injury all week, which limited his participation in practice. However, the defensive end didn't appear to be slowed down in Sunday's win, as he notched his first sack since Week 4 and his highest tackle count of the season. He'll now get the bye week to rest before taking on the Patriots in Week 11.

  • Raiders' Mario Edwards: Will begin season on IR

    Edwards (hip) was placed on the Raiders' injured reserve list Monday. Edwards was also a candidate for the PUP list to begin the season, but Oakland brass must not be convinced his hip injury has progressed enough to consider a Week 7 return as realistic. Nonetheless, Edwards is still expected to return at a later point in the campaign and can be tagged with a return designation after the first six weeks of the regular season.

  • Raiders' Mario Edwards: Won't need surgery

    Edwards (hip) will not need surgery on his sprained hip, Scott Bair of CSN California reports. Edwards injured his hip while tackling Cardinals' running back David Johnson during Thursday's preseason contest. Edwards was given a four-to-six week timetable, but it was questionable if he needed surgery or not. Now that it's clear he just needs time and not surgery, he'll likely be able to return sooner than he otherwise would've, though his status for the regular season opener is still in question.
