Edwards took 16 caries for 67 yards in Sunday's 27-24 overtime loss to the Chiefs.
Though still effective in his role as the Ravens' lead back, Edwards finished with four-week lows for both carries and rushing yards while once again failing to catch a pass. Kenneth Dixon was ultimately more productive with less work, taking eight carries for 59 yards and a touchdown and adding one catch for 21 yards. Between his lack of pass-catching contribution and Dixon's recent emergence, Edwards makes for a risky play in Week 15 against the shaky Tampa Bay defense, though his role does also come with a reasonable weekly ceiling.
Edwards has been tending to an ankle issue of late, but he logged 21 carries for 82 yards in Week 13's win over the Falcons and isn't even on the Ravens' injury report in advance of Sunday's game against the Chiefs. Edwards is thus slated to head the Baltimore backfield in Week 14, and he'll take aim at a Kansas City defense that is allowing an average of 122 rushing yards per game to date.
Edwards is continuing with treatment of his ankle injury but believes he'll be available for Sunday's game at Kansas City, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.
The Ravens swapped out Kenneth Dixon (knee) for Alex Collins (foot) as residents of injured reserve, but Edwards remained the lead runner in this backfield Week 13 in Atlanta. After three impressive performances in a row, Edwards has recorded 61 carries for 315 yards and one touchdown during that stretch. However, he was seen limping off the field near the end of Sunday's game, increasing the likelihood that he'd be on the injury report this week. Wednesday's version will reveal Edwards' level of participation.
Edwards carried 21 times for 82 yards in Sunday's 26-16 win over the Falcons.
As expected, Edwards led the Ravens' Week 13 backfield, even though he approached the weekend with a "questionable" designation due to an ankle issue. It's worth noting that with four minutes left in the game, Edwards was spotted limping off the field, per Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com. We'll have to see if that turns into anything that may impact the running back's Week 14 status. With Alex Collins (foot) on IR, Kenneth Dixon and Ty Montgomery are next up in the Ravens' RB pecking order behind Edwards.
Edwards (ankle), who is active for Sunday's game against the Falcons, will start and isn't expected to face any limitations due to the injury, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.
The questionable designation Edwards carried into the contest implied some level of concern about his health, but apparently not enough for the Ravens to institute a hard cap on his play count. After racking up 233 yards on 40 carries the past two weeks, Edwards should be in store for another big workload on the ground against a shaky Atlanta defense, assuming game flows allows for it. Ty Montgomery and Kenneth Dixon are more likely candidates to pick up snaps out of the backfield on obvious passing downs.
