Raiders WR Bryan Edwards suffered an ankle injury in Sunday's loss to the Patriots. Vegas was already without WR Henry Ruggs (hamstring) in that one. HC Jon Gruden said Monday that he's "concerned" about both guys. We'll need to track their practice participation this week. Hunter Renfrow, Nelson Agholor and Zay Jones are the Raiders' healthy WRs right now.
Speaking with the Raiders website Saturday, HC Jon Gruden had some high praise for 2nd-year WR Bryan Edwards: "He's got great ability. I'm excited about him. You see, he looks like T.O. He looks like one of the #1 wideouts in the league." Gruden then added that WR Henry Ruggs "is putting it together; I think his experience shows." It's one soundbite from an early-camp interview. But it sure sounds -- and looks from Gruden's expression -- as though last year's Round 3 WR is impressing him more than the 1st-rounder. Gruden went on to name Willie Snead and Hunter Renfrow as "crafty little slot guys" and said he's "really excited" about TE Foster Moreau. We'll keep our eyes on the progression of this offense, which presents wide-open opportunity for roles behind lead target Darren Waller.
Raiders WR Bryan Edwards (foot, ankle) is set to return for Sunday’s game against the Chargers. He’s not a fantasy option but might steal some snaps from WR Nelson Agholor.
Raiders WR Bryan Edwards will miss at least Sunday's game against the Bills with his sprained ankle, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He's "considered week-to-week" otherwise so could miss further time. We'll see about Edwards' status on the other side of Week 4. He's not worth clinging to in most redraft leagues, though.
Raiders WR Bryan Edwards has been 1 of the buzziest players in the league through the first 10 days of August. The Athletic's Vic Tafur says the rookie has been "impressing teammates and coaches alike with his playmaking ability." And QB Derek Carr recently compared Edwards to Davante Adams (who Carr played with at Fresno State.) “Bryan is a very violent route runner,” Carr said. “He’s very violent and aggressive in his cuts, in and out of his cuts. … He reminds me of, when the ball is in the air, of Davante (Adams). Great ball skills.” Edwards has a good shot to win a top 3 WR job this season and is worth considering as a late-round flier in your fantasy draft.
Raiders WR Bryan Edwards (foot) is "ready to go" for the start of training camp, according to insider Adam Caplan. It's good news after Edwards fractured his left foot while training for the Combine back in February. The rookie is expected to open camp behind WR Tyrell Williams on the depth chart, per Caplan, but has the size and talent to push for a rookie-year role.
