Edmonds (shoulder) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Edmonds continues to have his practice reps capped for a third week in a row. During his last two appearances, he tallied 10 carries for 61 yards and gathered in six of eight targets for 23 yards, and in Week 6 he managed just a 36 percent share of the Cardinals' offensive snaps. In the same time span, James Conner got the larger share of the work, turning 28 touches into 108 yards from scrimmage and one touchdown. As long as Edmonds is injured, he may be forced to play second fiddle to Conner.

Edmonds turned four carries into 46 yards and three catches (on four targets) into four yards during Sunday's 37-14 win at Cleveland.
EDGE Analysis
Edmonds' first touch of the game was a 40-yard run on the Cardinals' initial possession. Thereafter, they were sporadic, with none of the six coming after halftime. Part of that was due to game flow, with Arizona sporting a lead of double-digit points from the 4:30 mark of the first quarter for the rest of the contest. With that reality, the team went with a grinder in James Conner to eat clock. On top of that, Edmonds has dealt with a shoulder injury for the past two weeks, so it's no surprise he was held to a season-low snap share (36 percent) and touch count. Assuming he's healthier this weekend, he should take on the larger share of offensive plays over Conner on Sunday against the Texans.

Edmonds (shoulder) is listed as active Sunday at Cleveland, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Despite having practice limitations for a second week in a row, Edmonds will be available to the Cardinals offense Week 6. He continues to get the better end of offensive snaps over fellow running back James Conner, earning at least 60 percent in all five games while the latter has topped out at 48 percent twice. The result has been 72 touches for 429 yards from scrimmage and no TDs for Edmonds, while Conner has received 67 touches for 235 total yards and five scores.

Edmonds (shoulder), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns, is expected to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
EDGE Analysis
Edmonds was limited at practice all week, but he looks like he'll be able to work through his shoulder issue Sunday and continue to share backfield work with James Conner. Confirmation of Edmonds' Week 6 status will arrive upon the release of the Cardinals' inactive list approximately 90 minutes prior to the game's 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff.

Edmonds (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest in Cleveland, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
For a second straight week, Edmonds' practice reps were capped due to a shoulder issue. He was considered a game-time call for last Sunday's game against the 49ers, but he suited up and played a typical 60 percent of the offensive snaps on his way to nine touches for 34 total yards. Backup James Conner also logged a normal snap share (48 percent), turning 11 touches into 37 yards and one TD. A cloud continues to hang over Edmonds' availability, which won't be known until 90 minutes before Sunday's 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff. If he's available, Edmonds likely will work in a similar 1A-1B situation with Conner to the Week 5 breakdown.

Edmonds (shoulder) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
The shoulder issue resulted in Edmonds being labeled as a game-time decision ahead of the Cardinals' Week 5 matchup with the 49ers, but he proceeded to suit up in the team's victory, albeit while seeing a season-low six carries in the contest. Edmonds looks to be in better health heading into Sunday's game in Cleveland, as he's already turned in a pair of limited practices after managing only one limited session Week 5. The Cardinals will see if he can upgrade to full activity Friday, which would likely allow Edmonds to enter the weekend without an injury designation.

Edmonds (shoulder) practiced in a limited fashion Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Edmonds logged a typical 60 percent of the offensive snaps (37 of 61) this past Sunday against the 49ers, but he easily had his worst statistical performance of the season (six carries for 15 yards, three catches for 19 yards on four targets). At the same time, fellow back James Conner drew 11 touches for 37 total yards and one TD on a 48 percent snap share. Edmonds tended to a hamstring issue last week, so his current shoulder concern will be one to monitor as the weekend draws closer.

Edmonds (hamstring) ran for 15 yards on six carries against San Francisco on Sunday, adding three receptions for 19 yards on four targets.
EDGE Analysis
Between the hamstring and the tough matchup with a Fred Warner-anchored defense, there was a lot working against Edmonds on Sunday, and that's before mentioning the team's meager 17 points against the 49ers. Edmonds is a crucial part of the Cardinals offense and will usually go as the rest of the offense does, but there just wasn't as much going Sunday as usual. The Cardinals face a respectable Cleveland defense in Week 6, but there should be more opportunity for Edmonds all the same, health permitting.

Edmonds (hamstring) is listed as active Sunday against the 49ers.
EDGE Analysis
Edmonds didn't get on the practice field until Friday, when his reps were limited. At the time, coach Kliff Kingsbury called Edmonds a game-time decision, but the fourth-year running back seemingly has progressed enough to play through his shoulder injury. With Edmonds in the lineup Week 5, the Cardinals likely will utilize the same 1A and 1B backfield situation (Edmonds and James Conner) as the first four games of the campaign.

Edmonds (shoulder), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers, is expected to play, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
EDGE Analysis
Edmonds took a designation into the weekend after he returned to a limited practice Friday following missed sessions Wednesday and Thursday. Confirmation of Edmonds' status will arrive upon the release of the Cardinals' inactive list approximately 90 minutes before Sunday's 4:25 ET p.m. kickoff. If Edmonds ends up limited or out versus San Francisco, James Conner would be in line for added backfield work.
