Edmonds ran the ball three times for a single yard during Sunday's 20-17
Edmonds has seen his touches and and yardage decrease each week since his eight-touch, 48-yard season debut. The Cardinals' offense has improved, but still ranks near the bottom of the league. All the while, Edmonds has seen his role in the offense decrease. The Cardinals next take on a middle-of-the-road 49ers run defense, but Edmonds hasn't shown nearly enough to pay him much attention.
Edmonds snagged all five of his targets for 15 yards and added a five-yard run during Sunday's 34-0 loss to the Rams.
It hasn't been for much yardage, but there seems to be a concerted effort to get Edmonds touches in Arizona. The problem has been that the Cardinals have fallen behind early in back to back weeks and have looked vanilla on offense. Until the Cardinals are able to play more balanced and take some shots downfield, it's going to continue to be a tough ride for Edmonds. Considering that the team has yet to find a way to unleash star David Johnson, brighter days are not guaranteed in the desert.
Edmonds took five carries for 11 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 24-17 preseason win over the Chargers.
Edmonds was the first running back in the game after David Johnson, who was taken out for good after ripping off back-to-back 14-yard gains on Arizona's first two snaps. Edmonds handled the rest of the opening drive, including a second-effort touchdown on a 4th-and-goal from the two-yard line. Despite averaging just 2.2 yards per carry, the rookie did a nice job with situational running, picking up four yards on a 2nd-and-3 and then three yards on a 1st-and-goal from the 6-yard line. More important, Edmonds got his work before D.J. Foster and T.J. Logan -- an early hint that the fourth-round pick is on track for the No. 2 RB job. Foster and Logan combined for just 18 yards on 11 touches during Saturday's game.
