Edwards required assistance to get off the field late in the first quarter of the Raiders' win, and then he was carted to the locker room once he got on the sideline. Coach Jack Del Rio offered no update on his injury after the game, but a team spokesman confirmed to reporters the D-lineman suffered a hip injury. He was spotted leaving the locker room on crutches.
Here are the other injuries we've been tracking Friday:
- A pair of big-name rookies had to deal with injuries in their preseason debut for the New York Giants.
New York's first- and second-round selections, cornerback Eli Apple and wide receiver Sterling Shepard, were both removed from Friday's game against the Dolphins. Apple was diagnosed with a lower leg strain, while Shepard suffered a sore groin, according to the team. However, coach Ben McAdoo after the game said both injuries weren't serious.
Apple racked up a fumble recovery before his trip to the locker room. Shepard made an Odell Beckham-esque grab for his first and only reception of the game.
- Steelers backup quarterback Bruce Gradkowski left Friday's action against the Lions with a left hamstring injury, and did not return. Offensive lineman Brian Mihalik (left knee) departed the contest early. Coach Mike Tomlin said Mihalik has a probable MCL sprain. Tomlin added that safety Ross Ventrone and linebacker Anthony Chickillo will both be evaluated after they each suffered a hamstring injury.
