The Steelers declined Edmunds' fifth-year option Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Edmunds has failed to live up to expectations as a first-round pick out of the 2018 NFL Draft, so it's no surprise to see Pittsburgh decline the expensive option on his rookie contract. He's thus set to hit free agency after the conclusion of the 2021 season.
Edmunds (shoulder) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.
Edmunds sat out the season finale against the Browns, but his absence appears to have been mostly precautionary, as he showed no ill effects Wednesday from the shoulder injury he suffered back in Week 14. Look for the safety to take the field against Cleveland on Sunday in the wild-card round.
Head coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that Edmunds (shoulder) may be available for Sunday's wild-card game against the Browns, Missi Matthews of the Steelers' official site reports.
The third-year safety will be monitored closely during the practice week. We'll have a better idea of Edmunds' chances when the team starts revealing practices statuses Wednesday. Sean Davis will start at strong safety for a second straight game if Edmunds is unavailable.
Edmunds (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's clash against Cleveland.
Edmunds hurt his shoulder during a loss to the Bills in Week 14 but was able to play in the subsequent two games. As such, his absence from Sunday's contest could be influenced by Pittsburgh's decision to rest a number of key players in preparation for the playoffs. The missed game will be Edmunds' first of his NFL career.
Edmunds (shoulder) wasn't listed on Friday's injury report, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.
Coach Mike Tomlin indicated that Edmunds suffered a shoulder injury in last week's loss to the Bills. The third-year safety has been cleared, however, and he'll play in Monday's divisional clash against the Bengals. Through 13 games as the starting strong safety, Edmunds has posted 61 tackles, a sack, eight pass breakups and two interceptions.
Coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that Edmunds is dealing with a shoulder injury, Missi Matthews of the Steelers' official site reports.
If Edmunds suffered this injury during this past Sunday's loss to the Bills, he didn't show it, as he played every snap on defense and produced a season-high eight tackles. It will be a red flag if Edmunds sits out practices this week. Otherwise, every indication points to the 22-year-old safety playing in Monday's matchup against the Bengals.
Edmunds totaled four tackles (two solo) and two interceptions in Sunday's 27-3 win over the Jaguars.
Edmunds recorded his first interception of the season late in the second quarter, and he added to his total in the fourth quarter. His second interception of the day led to a touchdown as the Steelers improved to 10-0 this year. The 2018 first-rounder has racked up 44 tackles (34 solo) and seven defensed passes over the first 10 games in 2020.
Edmunds totaled four tackles (three solo) including a sack in Sunday's 26-21 win over the Broncos.
Despite a dominating defensive effort, Pittsburgh did not secure the win until Edmunds raced in untouched and sacked backup Jeff Driskel on fourth down with less than two minutes to go. It was only the second career sack for Edmunds in 34 games. He will look to add to that in Week 3 against a Houston offensive line that has allowed quarterback Deshaun Watson to be sacked a total of eight times in two games this season.
Edmunds posted nine tackles in Monday's 26-16 win over the Giants.
The 2018 first-round pick started at strong safety and played every snap in Monday's closer-than-expected win. He ended up leading the Steelers in tackles, as they shut down Saquon Barkley while Daniel Jones was up and down, but ultimately finished with 279 receiving yards. Edmunds continues to be an intriguing IDP play coming off a 105-tackle season, and he'll look to keep it rolling in Week 2 versus the Broncos.
Edmunds (undisclosed) was a full participant during Thursday's practice, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.
Edmunds had been dealing with an undisclosed issue that forced him to miss time during training camp, but as evidenced by this news, he's been cleared for action. Now healthy, the 2018 first-round pick is expected to handle starting strong safety duties for the Steelers in 2020.
Edmunds missed a second straight practice Saturday, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.
It's unclear what's bothering Edmunds, but two days on the sidelines is certainly concerning. For the time being, Jordan Dangerfield and Curtis Riley will fill in at strong safety, but that's a steep downgrade. The 22-year-old Edmunds already has two years of starting duties under his belt and recorded 105 tackles last year. Edmunds has plenty of time to recover, though, as the Steelers are still three weeks from their season opener.
Edmunds totaled seven tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 28-10 loss to the Ravens.
Edmunds finishes the 2019 season second on the team with 104 tackles in 16 games. Despite the high volume of tackles Edmunds had no sacks or turnovers in his sophomore season after recording one of each in 2018. He is signed until 2023.
Edmunds totaled 11 tackles (10 solo) in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Bills.
The 11 tackles matched a career best for Edmunds and propelled him ahead of Devin Bush for the team lead on the season. While coaches never want a defensive back to lead the team in tackles, it was another solid effort for Pittsburgh, holding opponents to 17 or fewer points for a fourth straight game and seventh time in the last eight contests overall.
Edmunds recorded eight tackles (four solo) and an interception in Sunday's 17-12 win over the Rams.
In what has been an otherwise unremarkable season in which he has had no sacks or turnovers, Edmunds snatched his first interception in a rather remarkable way. With the Rams lining up to punt from their own 29-yard line, Edmunds intercepted a pass from punter Johnny Hekker intended for cornerback David Long Jr. However, the Pittsburgh offense could not take advantage of the great field position, losing 10 yards before punting the ball back to Los Angeles. While the Pittsburgh defense is a solid fantasy play as a unit, Edmunds has little value in IDP formats heading into Week 11 against Cleveland.
Edmunds totaled eight tackles (four solo) in Sunday's 26-24 win over the Colts.
The safety now has 54 tackles this season, second only to Devin Bush (66) on the Steelers. Still, Edmunds has no turnovers or sacks, limiting his fantasy value. He could see a lot more action in Week 10 against the Rams and quarterback Jared Goff, who entered Week 9 leading the league in passing yards.
Edmunds recorded a team-high 11 tackles (eight solo) in Pittsburgh's 28-26 loss to Seattle on Sunday.
With 18 tackles Edmunds, is tied for the team lead with Devin Bush through two games -- not necessarily what you want to see from a defense back. If the Steelers continue to play as poorly as they have thus far, Edmunds could be a sneaky IDP play in formats that reward for tackles.
Edmunds (thigh) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.
Edmunds' full participation Thursday is a step up from his limited participation Wednesday. It remains unclear as to how the 21-year-old sustained the injury, as the team didn't release any news saying he had picked up an injury after Sunday's loss to New England.
Edmunds (thigh) was listed as a limited participant for Wednesday's practice.
There was nothing reported following Sunday night's game that Edmunds had picked up an injury, so it's likely the team is electing to give him some rest heading into Week 2. If he doesn't suit up, however, duties would fall on Jordan Dangerfield at the strong safety position. For now, Edmunds should be considered questionable for Sunday, so his practice logs throughout the week will paint a clearer picture as Week 2 draws closer.
Edmunds recorded five tackles (four solo) during Sunday's 16-13 win over Cincinnati.
Reunited with older brother Trey, the younger Edmunds finished his rookie season with 78 tackles including one sack with one interception and one fumble recovery in 16 games. He was second only to Sean Davis for the most tackles on the team. Under contract until 2023, Edmunds has a firm hold on the starting strong safety position heading into the 2019 season.
Edmunds (concussion) doesn't carry an injury designation ahead of Sunday's game against the Saints, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.
Edmunds was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, but he was able to practice fully Thursday and Friday. The Virginia Tech product was able to make his way out of the league's concussion protocol as well. In the last five games, Edmunds has 35 tackles (22 solo) and has been on the field for at least 55 defensive snaps in each game.
