Pittsburgh released Edmunds on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Analysis: The 27-year-old had seen just seven offensive snaps during the past two seasons combined. His absence means 2020 fourth-rounder Anthony McFarland will compete with rookie UDFAs Mataeo Durant and Jaylen Warren for a spot as the Steelers' third running-back in 2022. Meanwhile, Edmunds will look for another opportunity elsewhere.
Jul 25, 2022 1:01 PM EST
The Steelers signed Edmunds to a reserve/future contract Friday, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.
Analysis: Edmunds spent most of the 2021 campaign on Pittsburgh's practice squad. Although he was elevated to the active roster twice, he played exclusively on special teams.
Jan 21, 2022 2:15 PM EST
Edmunds reverted to the Steelers' practice squad Tuesday, per the NFL's transaction log.
Analysis: Edmunds was elevated for the Steelers' win over Cleveland on Monday, and he played on seven specials teams snaps. He's been elevated to the active roster for the team's last two games, and is a candidate for the same role in Week 18.
Jan 6, 2022 6:52 PM EST
The Steelers have elevated Edmunds to their 53-man roster ahead of Monday's matchup with the Browns, Teresa Varley reports.
Analysis: Edmunds has spent most of the season on Pittsburgh's practice squad. This will be his second time joining the active roster. He will automatically revert back to the team's practice squad following the game, as he was added as a COVID-19 replacement.
Jan 3, 2022 12:59 PM EST
Edmunds reverted to the Steelers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction report.
Analysis: Edmunds played 11 special teams snaps during his first shot on the active roster this season. However, the soon-to-be 27-year-old didn't record any counting stats during the Steelers' blowout loss to the Chiefs.
Dec 28, 2021 1:52 PM EST
The Steelers elevated Edmunds from the practice squad Saturday, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: For the first time this season, Edmunds is getting a shot on the active roster. Having said that, with only Anthony McFarland (COVID-19) unavailable Sunday at Kansas City, Edmunds may find it difficult to see more than special teams snaps behind the Steelers' top three running backs Najee Harris, Benny Snell and Kalen Ballage.
Dec 25, 2021 7:36 PM EST
Edmunds signed with the Steelers' practice squad Wednesday, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.
Analysis: Edmunds faced an uphill battle for a roster spot with Najee Harris and Kalen Ballage in the fold for the Steelers, and he was officially let go Tuesday. However, he'll remain in the organization and should be an option if the team needs an additional running back at some point in 2021.
Sep 2, 2021 3:40 PM EST
Edmunds was released by the Steelers on Tuesday, Ed Bouchette of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: With the offseason backfield additions of rookie first-round pick Najee Harris and free agent Kalen Ballage, Edmunds ended up on the outside looking in. Edmunds has 31 career carries for 140 yards and a touchdown since entering the NFL in 2017.
Aug 31, 2021 6:53 PM EST
Edmunds will likely have to compete for a roster spot during the offseason after the Steelers selected Najee Harris with the 24th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, Mark Kaboly of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Edmunds returned to Pittsburgh on a reserve/future contract in January, but the team signed Kalen Ballage before selecting the first running back off the board in the first round Thursday. Edmunds only appeared in four games for Pittsburgh last season and failed to garner any touches before a hamstring injury ended his season. Now that Harris is in line to serve as the lead back for the Steelers in 2021, Edmunds will have to make a strong case in training camp and the preseason if he hopes to secure a backup role on the Week 1 roster.
Apr 30, 2021 11:18 AM EST
The Steelers signed Edmunds to a reserve/future contract Friday.
Analysis: Earlier this week, Edmunds agreed on an injury settlement with the Steelers and was cut. The running back will return to Pittsburgh next season after appearing in four games this year, and hopefully the 26-year-old will see more offensive snaps.
Jan 15, 2021 3:38 PM EST
The Steelers waived Edmunds (hamstring) off injured reserve Tuesday.
Analysis: Edmunds reached an injury settlement with the Steelers in order to be cut loose. The 26-year-old suited up in four games for the team in 2020, but he didn't record a touch over seven offensive snaps.
Jan 12, 2021 1:46 PM EST
Edmunds (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Edmunds was first reported as having a hamstring issue last Wednesday, and now he will be sidelined for at least three games given his transition to IR. Pittsburgh may have been evaluating Edmunds in recent days to determine if a shift to IR was necessary, but the team seemingly believes his injury is not short-term in nature. Edmunds has suited up for four games in 2020, with only seven combined offensive snaps to his name over those appearances.
Nov 26, 2020 2:53 PM EST
Edmunds (hamstring) was a non-participant at Tuesday's practice.
Analysis: The 25-year-old sat out Sunday's win over the Jaguars due to the hamstring issue, and he's been sidelined for the first two practices of the week. Edmunds likely will need to practice in some capacity Wednesday to have a chance of suiting up for the Thanksgiving Day matchup with Baltimore.
Nov 24, 2020 4:59 PM EST
Edmunds (hamstring) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Jaguars, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.
Analysis: Edmunds and Jaylen Samuels (quadricep) were both sidelined during practice all week, and neither will play Sunday, leaving James Conner, Benny Snell and Anthony McFarland as the only healthy running backs for Pittsburgh. Edmunds' status is uncertain for Week 12 as well with a Thursday night game versus the Ravens on deck.
Nov 20, 2020 12:03 PM EST
Edmunds (hamstring) didn't practice Wednesday.
Analysis: Edmunds and fellow depth running back Jaylen Samuels (quadriceps) were both unavailable Wednesday. Even if neither guy heals up by Sunday's game in Jacksonville, Pittsburgh's backfield will still be in good hands with James Conner, Benny Snell and Anthony McFarland all healthy.
Nov 18, 2020 1:02 PM EST
The Steelers signed Edmunds to the active roster Tuesday, Teresa Varley of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Edmunds was cut Saturday and was able to clear waivers, opening the door for Pittsburgh to bring him back. The backfield depth is crucial because Jaylen Samuels was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday as a close contact to Vance McDonald, who tested positive for the virus. If Samuels is unable to play this week against the Bengals, Edmunds likely will suit up.
Nov 10, 2020 1:15 PM EST
The Steelers waived Edmunds on Saturday, Teresa Varley of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Edmunds signed with the Steelers' 53-man roster last Saturday and only played on special teams against the Ravens. He's been cut to clear up a roster spot for linebacker Avery Williamson, who the Steelers traded for earlier in the week. If Edmunds clears waivers, he's expected to land on the team's practice squad.
Nov 7, 2020 3:25 PM EST
The Steelers signed Edmunds to the active roster Saturday, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Edmunds was elevated last week for a matchup against the Titans and played just one offensive snap, but now he's an honest member of the 53-man roster. With four healthy running backs, however, he likely won't play on offense unless there's an injury ahead of him on the depth chart.
Oct 31, 2020 7:43 PM EST
Edmunds reverted to the Steelers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.
Analysis: The 25-year-old back earned his way onto the active roster for his second appearance of 2020, though he did not end up playing any sort of significant offensive role against Tennessee. James Conner dominated the RB workload with 20 carries, while Anthony McFarland Jr. (one carry), Jaylen Samuels (one) and Benny Snell (two) split the backup opportunities in Sunday's 27-24 win.
Oct 26, 2020 4:44 PM EST
The Steelers elevated Edmunds to the active roster Saturday, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Edmunds will make his second appearance on the active roster with the Steelers this season, as he's resided on the practice squad for all of 2020. Don't expect the Maryland product to see much playing time on offense Sunday, however, as he currently sits fifth on the depth chart.
