Bears' Mario Edwards: Ready for Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: Injury pops up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards (foot) has been designated as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Colts, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

Edwards was absent from the injury report all week, but now his status is uncertain for Week 4. The 26-year-old defensive end has played just 22 snaps over the past two weeks, so his possible absence would only affect the team's depth at defensive end behind Akiem Hicks and Roy Robertson-Harris.

Bears' Mario Edwards: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards (leg) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Falcons.

Edwards came into the contest questionable with a leg issue, however, he appears healthy to give it a go after testing it in pregame warmups. Edwards only saw eight defensive snaps in Week 2, so he'll likely be in line for a similar workload this week.

Bears' Mario Edwards: Finds new home
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mario Edwards: Released by Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards was released by the Saints on Saturday, Amie Just of Nola.com reports.

After playing for the Raiders and Giants, Edwards spent 2019 with the Saints, where he appeared in 14 games. The team released him in favor of David Onyemata, Malcom Brown, Sheldon Rankins, Shy Tuttle and Malcolm Roach.

Saints' Mario Edwards Jr.: Solid in limited action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards recorded eight tackles (six solo), 3.0 sacks and a forced fumble during the 2019 NFL season.

He appeared in 14 games without a start in his first season with New Orleans, taking the field for 299 defensive snaps. He's not a guy who will take the field with regularity, though he's proved to be solid with limited opportunities. Edwards is under contract through 2021 and should be back with the team in 2020.

Saints' Mario Edwards Jr.: Records sack in dominant win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards recorded three tackles (two solo), one tackle for a loss and a sack in the Saints' 42-10 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

Edwards recorded his first sack in three weeks, finishing 2019 on a high note. In 14 games on the year, he managed eight tackles (six solo), three sacks and a forced fumble.

Saints' Mario Edwards: Records first sack of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards finished with one solo tackle and a sack in the Saints' 34-31 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

Edwards recorded his first sack of the year in Sunday's victory, accounting for one of four New Orleans sacks on Kyle Allen. With just two tackles (one solo) to his credit on the season, Edwards is off the fantasy radar.

Saints' Mario Edwards: Ready for Sunday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards (hamstring) will play in Sunday's game versus the Rams, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Edwards sat out the season opener with this injury, but he was a full participant in Friday's practice and is ready to make his 2019 debut. He'll likely rotate with David Onyemata at defensive tackle since starter Sheldon Rankins (Achilles) is out.

Saints' Mario Edwards: Ruled out for Monday night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards (hamstring) won't play in Monday's game versus the Texans, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Edwards didn't participate in any practices this week, so he'll have a tough time getting on the field for Week 2's game versus the Rams. The fifth-year pro could've logged a large workload since Sheldon Rankins (Achilles) will sit out, but instead the Saints' defensive front will be short on depth. Expect Taylor Stallworth to start at defensive tackle.

Saints' Mario Edwards: Inks deal with Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards signed a two-year contract with the Saints on Friday, Luke Johnson of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Edwards played a reserve role with the Giants last season, appearing in 15 games while posting 14 tackles, two sacks and one forced fumble. The 6-foot-3, 280-pound defensive lineman will provide the Saints with interior depth while Sheldon Rankins recovers from a torn Achilles.

Giants' Mario Edwards: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards (calf) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Edwards suffered the calf injury last week against the Colts and was unable to practice this week. Kerry Wynn (thumb) returned to practice as a full participant and should serve as the primary rotational defensive end for the Giants in the season finale.

Giants' Mario Edwards: Done for day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game versus the Colts due to a calf injury, Paul Schwartz of the New York Post reports.

Edwards is the Giants' third defensive end and was kept under 15 defensive snaps in four straight weeks before this game. The 24-year-old has 14 tackles and two sacks this year, and he'll look to get healthy for the season finale against the Cowboys.

Giants' Mario Edwards: Reaches the quarterback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards recorded a sack across 11 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

Edwards has played a limited role his first season in the Big Apple, as he has yet to exceed 30 snaps in a single contest. As a result, the 24-year-old has little to show on the stat sheet, with Sunday marking his second sack of the year. Edwards doesn't garner much fantasy attention if he remains in this rotational role.

Giants' Mario Edwards: Claimed by G-Men
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants claimed Edwards off waivers, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.

The Raiders put Edwards on the trade block this offseason but were unable to find any takers, leaving no option but to cut ties with the 2015 second-rounder. Edwards will now get a fresh start in New York playing within an unsolidified Giants defensive line.

Raiders' Mario Edwards: On thin ice in Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards isn't guaranteed to make the Oakland roster ahead of the 2018 season, Jerry McDonald of the East Bay Times reports.

Edwards has missed 18 games in three seasons since Oakland made him a second-round selection 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 defensive end pickups Frostee Rucker and Tank Carradine to do so.

Raiders' Mario Edwards: Exits with ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

December 30, 2017 05:24 PM
Raiders' Mario Edwards: Clear of injury designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

December 23, 2017 03:44 PM
Raiders' Mario Edwards: Out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards (ankle) will not play in Monday's game against the Eagles, Eddie Paskal of the Raiders' official site reports.

Edwards will miss his second consecutive game while nursing an ankle injury. In his absence, look for Jihad Ward to step into a bigger role.

Raiders' Mario Edwards: Won't play Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
