The Bills exercised Edmunds' $12.7 million fifth-year option for 2022 on Monday, Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com reports.
Edmunds will still be just 23 years old while playing out the 2021 season, and considering his production relative to age, picking up his fifth-year option was likely a no-brainer for the Bills. The move gives Buffalo additional time to negotiate a long-term deal with Edmunds, who looks primed to put together a fourth-straight campaign with over 100 tackles.
Edmunds (hamstring) does not carry an injury designation for Saturday's divisional-round game against the Ravens.
Edmunds managed to practice in full Thursday after having begun the week with back-to-back limited sessions. The star middle linebacker can safely be considered on track for his usual every-down defensive role during Saturday's divisional playoff game.
Edmunds (hamstring) was listed as limited again for Wednesday's practice session.
The Bills seem to be taking it easy on their banged-up stars, though we'll feel better that Edmunds is closer to full health if he can get in a full session in the team's final practice of the week Thursday.
Edmunds was listed as a limited participant Tuesday due to a hamstring issue.
The Bills took it easy on some other stars in the first practice of the week, so we wouldn't be too concerned about the middle linebacker's status for Saturday's divisional playoff game against the Ravens. Edmunds posted nine tackles and two passes defended in the win over the Colts.
Edmunds (foot) was a full participant during Thursday's practice session.
With the Bills heading into Denver on a short week, it became more unnerving to see Edmunds arise on the injury report Tuesday and Wednesday. Now clear for Week 15 with a full practice session under his belt, the Virginia Tech product continues his bid for a second consecutive Pro Bowl nod. Edmunds carries 97 tackles, three pass deflections and one sack into a matchup against the Broncos' No. 29 scoring offense.
Edmunds (foot) was limited in practice Wednesday.
Edmunds also received a limited designation in Tuesday's walk-through practice. He'll have one more chance to improve his participation level Thursday before Buffalo takes the field Saturday in Denver. Tyrel Dodson would fill in at middle linebacker if Edmunds is out or limited on game day.
Edmunds recorded 11 tackles (eight solo), a sack and a pass breakup in Sunday's 44-34 win over the Seahawks.
For the third time this season, Edmunds reached double-digit tackles in a game, and the 22-year-old linebacker added his first sack of the year as well. With 63 stops through eight games, Edmunds is comfortably on track for a third straight season with 100-plus tackles despite already missing a game.
Edmunds had 12 tackles (eight solo) during Monday's 26-17 loss to the Chiefs.
The 22-year-old had only eight tackles over his first two games of the season, but he's combined for 33 tackles over the past three contests. Edmunds posted 121 tackles and 115 tackles in his first two seasons and is on pace for a similar total in 2020.
Edmunds (shoulder) is absent from the Bills' final injury report ahead of Monday's matchup with the Chiefs.
Edmunds popped up on the injury report after practicing in limited fashion Friday. However, it looks like the Bills were simply erring on the side of caution with their starting middle linebacker. Look for him to take on his usual role Monday assuming he avoids any setbacks, while it's worth noting that the coaching staff made comments earlier this week that even though Edmunds continues to play, he's still not 100 percent after suffering the injury in Week 2.
Edmunds was listed as a limited participant Friday due to a shoulder issue, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
A shoulder issue kept Edmunds out of the Week 2 game in Miami, but he's played through it since. It's unclear if his limited participation Friday is related, or if it is, if he was given a lighter load for precautionary reasons in what's been a busy week for the Bills. With the team not playing until Monday, Saturday's session will likely be more telling for the Bills' leading linebacker in terms of tackles (29).
Edmunds totaled 12 tackles in Sunday's win over the Raiders while playing all 74 defensive snaps.
Edmunds looks like he's past the shoulder injury that slightly derailed the early part of his season, producing his biggest tackle output of the season and matching the highest he's ever put up in a single game as a pro. If teammate Matt Milano's pectoral injury keeps him out of further action, Edmunds would be even more likely to post continued elevated tackle totals.
Edmunds (shoulder) practiced fully Thursday after being limited during Wednesday's session.
More specifically, the athletic middle linebacker shed his red no-contact jersey, meaning he should be a safe IDP play for this week's game against the Raiders.
Edmunds (shoulder) was listed as a limited practice participant Wednesday.
The starting middle linebacker returned from a one-game absence for Week 3 and played all but one defensive play, so we assume the team is taking it easy on him to open the week, as coach Sean McDermott often does with his veterans. Edmunds tallied a modest five tackles in Sunday's win and was outplayed by fellow linebacker Matt Milano, who was returning from an injury of his own.
Edmunds (shoulder) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Rams.
It was reported earlier that Edmunds was expected to play in the contest after drawing a trio of limited practices last week, so this news isn't surprising. Now healthy, Edmunds is expected to assume his usual starting role as the team's middle linebacker.
Edmunds (shoulder), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams, is expected to play, Kimberly Jones of NFL Network reports.
The Bills should be back to full strength at linebacker Week 3, as Matt Milano (hamstring) -- who is also listed as questionable -- is expected to return after a one-game absence. Edmunds was also sidelined for the Bills' Week 2 win over the Dolphins, marking only the second absence of his three-year career.
Edmunds (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams.
Edmunds has put together a trio of limited practices this week, and it looks as though the final word on his status may not come until Buffalo's inactive list is revealed around 11:30 a.m. ET on Sunday. Fellow starter Matt Milano (hamstring) is also listed as questionable, so it remains possible that Buffalo's defense could once again be without its top two linebackers versus the Rams.
Edmunds (shoulder), who practiced Wednesday on a limited basis, is working again Thursday while in a non-contact jersey, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.
Edmunds and Matt Milano -- the two best linebackers on the team -- both missed the Week 2 win over the Dolphins. While the substitutes performed adequately, it was clear there was something missing without the two main guys, and the stout Buffalo defense yielded some big yardage over the middle of the field throughout the game. Those that roster Tyler Higbee will want to keep an eye on the two linebackers' statuses the the Rams-Bills matchup following a game where Miami tight end Mike Gesicki torched the Buffalo defense for an 8-130-1 line.
Edmunds (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday.
Edmunds got some limited practices in last week as well, but he was ultimately held out of Sunday's win over Miami. With some extra recovery time under his belt, the middle linebacker will hope to raise his practice participation and get back in there against the Rams in Week 3.
Coach Sean McDermott has ruled Edmunds (shoulder) out for Sunday's divisional match against the Dolphins, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
McDermott said that neither Edmunds nor position mate Matt Milano (hamstring) will practice Friday or suit up Sunday. With both starting linebackers sidelined, it looks like Tyrel Dodson and Tyler Matakevich will be thrust into the lineup in Miami. The opportunity that Dodson and Matakevich should receive makes them both emergency options in IDP formats. Starter A.J. Klein will also see the field a lot more this week.
Edmunds (shoulder) practiced on a limited basis Thursday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Edmunds did some very limited work during Wednesday's session, so even though he wore a no-contact jersey Thursday, he appears to be trending toward at least trying to play through the injury Sunday in Miami. We'll see if Edmunds is limited or full Friday. Teammate and fellow starter Matt Milano has been unable to practice on any level so far this week.
