  • Buccaneers' Mike Edwards: Double-digit stops in loss

    Edwards totaled 10 tackles (six solo) and one pass defensed in the Buccaneers' 31-14 wild-card loss to the Cowboys on Monday night. He finished the 2022 regular season with 82 tackles (52 solo), one sack, two interceptions -- including a pick-six -- and three defensed passes overall across 13 games.

    Edwards checked in second in tackles on the night for the Buccaneers in his return from a one-game absence due to a hip issue, putting a strong cap on what was a productive 2022 campaign overall. The fourth-year safety set a new career high in tackles while recording multiple interceptions for the third straight season, and factoring in Monday's production, he posted four double-digit tackle tallies overall. Edwards is set to become an unrestricted free agent at the start of the new league year in mid-March, and it remains to be seen if he'll be deemed a priority re-signing by the Buccaneers.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Edwards: Good to go for wild-card round

    Edwards (hip) has been ruled active ahead of Monday's wild-card game against the Cowboys.

    Edwards will return to the field after sitting out the regular-season finale against Atlanta with a hip injury. The 26-year-old was a full participant during each practice ahead of Monday's playoff tilt, so it's likely he'll retain his every-down role alongside strong safety Antoine Winfield.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Edwards: Questionable for Monday

    Edwards (hip) is listed as questionable for Monday's game versus Dallas.

    Edwards was a full participant at practice Thursday, Friday and Saturday, so he's likely on the 'probable' end of the questionable designation. If he's healthy enough to play, he'll start at safety alongside Antoine Winfield in a wild-card matchup against a potent Cowboys offense.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Edwards: Full go Thursday

    Edwards (hamstring/hip) was a full participant during the Buccaneers' practice Thursday.

    Edwards has dealt with a lingering hamstring injury since Week 12, leaving him sidelined for back-to-back games until he suited up again Week 15 versus Cincinnati. The 26-year-old was then one of seven Buccaneers starters to land on the team's inactives list prior to the regular-season finale against Atlanta. However, Edwards' addition to this list was likely a precautionary move given that Tampa Bay had already secured the NFC South title heading into Week 18, so he should be ready to reprise an every-down role during Monday's wild-card matchup versus Dallas.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Edwards: Unavailable for Week 18

    Edwards (hamstring/hip) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Falcons.

    Edwards was able to partake in a trio of limited practice sessions leading up to the Week 18 contest versus Atlanta as a result of both hamstring and hip issues, but he'll ultimately handle his usual starting gig off to Keanu Neal on Sunday.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Edwards: Questionable for Week 18

    Edwards (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against Atlanta, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

    Edwards was limited at practice Wednesday through Friday due to a lingering hamstring injury that cost him two weeks at the beginning of December. However, the fourth-year safety has appeared in three straight games since his brief absence, so barring a setback, Edwards should be back in action for Sunday's regular-season finale.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Edwards: Six stops in Week 17 win

    Edwards tallied six tackles (five solo) during the Buccaneers' 30-24 win over the Panthers in Week 17.

    Edwards went into the contest nursing a hamstring injury, but he was able to log 58 snaps on defense and another 13 on special teams. The fourth-year pro is up to a career-high 82 tackles heading into the regular-season finale against the Falcons, a figure he's complemented with three defensed passes, a pair of interceptions (including a pick-six) and a sack across 13 games.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Edwards: Playing Sunday

    Edwards (hamstring) is active Sunday against the Panthers, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

    Edwards has been dealing with the injury for multiple weeks, but he's managed to suit up each game. His ability to suit up will be a boon for the team's secondary Week 17.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Edwards: Questionable with hamstring

    Edwards (hamstring) is considered questionable to play Sunday versus the Panthers.

    Edwards has played through the hamstring injury the last two weeks and was able to remain an active participant at practice all week, albeit in limited fashion. He appears likely to tough it out again Week 17 against Carolina. With Antoine Winfield (ankle), Carlton Davis (shoulder) and Jamel Dean (toe) also banged up, the Buccaneers' secondary will be far from 100 percent Sunday.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Edwards: Active Sunday

    Edwards (hamstring) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Cardinals, Brianna Dix of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

    Edwards missed back-to-back games with a hamstring injury before returning to action in Week 15. He played 29 defensive snaps during the team's loss to Cincinnati and was clear of the injury report Wednesday and Thursday before popping back up Friday as a limited participant due to a hamstring issue. It appears his limited work to end Week 16 prep was merely precautionary, as the safety is active and figures to play a prominent role in Tampa Bay's secondary. Antoine Winfield (ankle) and Keanu Neal (toe) are also active, so the Buccaneers will have all four of their safeties available against Arizona.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Edwards: Listed as questionable

    Edwards (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Cardinals.

    Edwards landed on the injury report Friday as a limited participant due to a hamstring injury. He returned to game action in Week 15 following a two-game absence due to a hamstring injury and recorded five tackles across 29 defensive snaps. It's unclear if he aggravated his previous hamstring injury or not, but it's concerning to see him back on the injury report. Antoine Winfield (ankle) and Keanu Neal (toe) are also questionable, so Tampa Bay's safety corps could be seriously depleted against Arizona.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Edwards: Suiting up Sunday

    Edwards (hamstring) is active for Sunday's Week 15 clash against the Bengals, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

    Edwards will therefore make his return from a two-game absence after managing to close out the week with back-to-back full practices. The talented safety's return coincides with that of position mate Antoine Winfield (ankle), meaning the Buccaneers will have the back end of their defense intact against the Bengals' dangerous air attack.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Edwards: Officially questionable

    Edwards (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Bengals, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Edwards was limited Wednesday due to a hamstring injury that's already cost him back-to-back games. He submitted full sessions Thursday and Friday but is still considered questionable for Sunday. Antoine Winfield (ankle) is also questionable, so if both starting safeties remain sidelined, Logan Ryan and Keanu Neal would presumably continue garnering major roles in Tampa Bay's secondary.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Edwards: Back in full Thursday

    Edwards (hamstring) was a full participant in the Buccaneers' practice Thursday.

    Edwards picked up a hamstring injury during Tampa Bay's Week 12 loss to the Browns, and he had been sidelined until returning to practice as a limited participant Wednesday. Now, the 26-year-old should be in the clear given his ability to practice in full for the first time again. Edwards has recorded a career-high 64 tackles, three passes defended and an interception, including a pick-six, over 10 games this season, and his return should be a big boost for the Buccaneers' depleted secondary.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Edwards: Listed as limited participant

    Edwards (hamstring) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Edwards missed back-to-back games due to a hamstring issue, but he appears to be trending in the right direction after logging his first limited session since sustaining the injury. He'll have two more opportunities to submit a full practice before the team needs to make a decision on his status for Sunday's matchup against the Bengals.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Edwards: Won't play versus San Fran

    Edwards (hamstring) has been ruled inactive ahead of Sunday's game against the 49ers.

    Edwards will miss his second game in a row while dealing with a hamstring contusion suffered Week 12 versus Cleveland. With Antoine Winfield (ankle) also inactive, expect Logan Ryan and Keanu Neal to once again step up as the Buccaneers' starting safeties Week 14.
