Edwards has missed 18 games in three seasons since Oakland made him a second-round pick in 2015. Even when healthy, the Florida State product hasn't provided the type of impact the team likely expected from him, notching just 5.5 sacks and 71 tackles in 30 games. The Raiders could save over $1.2 million in cap space by letting him go, though the team would likely need to feel very comfortable with offseason additions Frostee Rucker and Tank Carradine to do so.
Edwards won't return to Sunday's game against the Chargers due to an ankle injury.
Edwards sat out Week 16 due to the ankle issue but was clear of an injury designation ahead of the regular season finale. The 23-year-old will finish the 2017 season having played five of the Raiders' final seven games with only a single tackle in that same stretch.
Edwards (ankle) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Chargers.
Edwards sat out Monday's loss to the Eagles but finished the week as a full practice participant to avoid the questionable tag. The 23-year-old should retain his typical starting role in the Raiders' defensive line rotation.
Edwards (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.
Edwards sustained the injury in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs and barely missed any snaps, but wasn't able to practice this week. Jihad Ward and Denico Autry should see increased snap counts at defensive end Sunday, although Autry is questionable with a hand injury.
