  • Eagles' T.J. Edwards: Takes significant step in 2021

    Edwards (forearm) totaled 130 tackles (64 solo), a sack, an interception, a fumble recovery and five pass defenses across 16 games in 2021.

    Edwards sat out the Eagles' Week 18 matchup against Dallas because the team had clinched a playoff spot, and he was forced out of the wild-card loss to the Buccaneers due to a forearm injury. However, he topped 100 tackles for the first time in his career during his third professional season. Assuming his forearm injury doesn't significantly impact his availability ahead of the 2022 campaign, the 25-year-old once again should play a prominent role in Philadelphia's defense next year.

  • Eagles' T.J. Edwards: Won't return Sunday

    Edwards (forearm) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's contest against the Buccaneers.

    Edwards totaled six tackles before leaving the wild-card matchup in the first half. Shaun Bradley has been tasked with trying to replace the starting middle linebacker, who finished second on the team with 130 tackles during the regular season.

  • Eagles' T.J. Edwards: May not return Sunday

    Edwards (forearm) is questionable to return Sunday against the Buccaneers.

    Edwards racked up six tackles (four solo) before leaving the wild-card matchup in the first half with a forearm injury. The third-year pro out of Wisconsin finished the regular season with 130 tackles across 16 appearances, so his potential absence would be a huge blow for Philadelphia's defense. Shaun Bradley has replaced him for the time being.

  • Eagles' T.J. Edwards: Monster tackling effort

    Edwards recorded 16 tackles (six solo) in Sunday's 34-10 win over the Giants.

    Edwards posted a season high in tackles and lead the Eagles in stops Sunday. The former undrafted rookie out of Wisconsin has now accrued 116 tackles (59 solo) despite playing fewer than 50 percent of the defensive snaps in the first seven games. Since he started playing a majority of the snaps, Edwards has averaged 10.5 tackles per game.

  • Eagles' T.J. Edwards: Totals 11 tackles in win

    Edwards logged 11 tackles (six solo) in Sunday's 33-18 win over the Jets.

    Edwards led the Eagles in tackles during Sunday's victory, and he's now racked up double-digit tackles in four of the last six weeks. During that time, he's totaled 62 tackles (34 solo), an interception, a fumble recovery and three pass defenses.

  • Eagles' T.J. Edwards: No injury designation

    Edwards (ankle) doesn't have an injury designation ahead of Sunday's game against the Jets.

    Edwards was a full participant in Friday's practice and will be able to play in Week 13 after he was limited by an ankle injury early in the week. He'll likely take on a starting role once again Sunday.

  • Eagles' T.J. Edwards: Limited Wednesday

    Edwards was listed as a limited participate at Wednesday's walkthrough due to an ankle injury.

    Edwards apparently picked up the ankle injury during Sunday's loss to the Giants, but it doesn't appear to be a serious concern. The 25-year-old should be able to avoid an injury designation for this weekend's matchup with the Jets if he can practice fully Thursday or Friday.

  • Eagles' T.J. Edwards: Inks one-year extension

    Edwards signed a one-year contract extension with the Eagles on Monday, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.

    Edwards is in the midst of a career-best season, and he's racked up double-digit tackles in three of the last four games. During Sunday's win over the Saints, he totaled 10 tackles (seven solo), an interception, a fumble recovery and two pass defenses. The 25-year-old has spent the first three seasons of his career with the Eagles, and he'll be rewarded with a new deal that will keep him in Philadelphia for at least one more year.

  • Eagles' T.J. Edwards: Seven tackles in Week 10

    Edwards racked up seven tackles and one pass deflection during Sunday's 30-13 win over the Broncos.

    After totaling 27 tackles over his two previous contests, Edwards' seven-tackle performance left fantasy managers wanting more. However, as long as the 25-year-old remains the starting middle linebacker for the Eagles, he will likely remain a high-floor option in IDP leagues.

  • Eagles' T.J. Edwards: Ascends into starting role

    Edwards is listed as the Eagles' top middle linebacker heading into Sunday's game against the Chargers, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

    Edwards already looked to be trending toward a promotion atop the depth chart after he amassed 13 tackles while playing a season-high 66 percent of the Eagles' defensive snaps in the team's Week 8 win over the Lions. The team's previous starter, Eric Wilson, was a healthy inactive for that contest before he was ultimately released Wednesday, clearing the way for Edwards to handle a full-time role moving forward. Rookie third-round pick Davion Taylor is also expected to benefit from increased snaps following Wilson's release.

  • Eagles' T.J. Edwards: Racks up 13 tackles

    Edwards totaled 13 tackles (eight solo) during Sunday's 44-6 win over the Lions.

    Edwards started for the sixth time this season and led Philadelphia's linebackers by playing 41 of 62 defensive snaps. The 25-year-old had 32 tackles through seven games entering Sunday's contest, and he'll need to continue with that higher level of production to be an IDP option.

  • Eagles' T.J. Edwards: Takes step forward in Year 2

    Edwards notched 70 tackles (37 solo), two sacks, one defended pass, one interception and two forced fumbles in 12 games in 2020.

    Edwards more than doubled his rookie totals despite playing in four less contests. The 24-year-old posted two double-digit tackle performances in 2020, giving him some upside in IDP fantasy formats, but usually his usage as a run stopper wasn't enough to make up for his lack of regular sacks or defensed passes.

  • Eagles' T.J. Edwards: Ready to rock

    Edwards (hamstring) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game versus the Cardinals.

    After sitting out last week's win over the Saints, Edwards will return to the lineup. The second-year pro is expected to start at middle linebacker. He'll be responsible for containing Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray, along with running backs Kenyan Drake and Chase Edmonds. Over his past five games, Edwards has registered 41 tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble.
