“Edwards was inactive for Monday’s loss to the 49ers due to an illness, but he was listed on Wednesday’s injury report with a concussion. Regardless, he’s since been removed from protocols and has logged back-to-back full practices, putting him in line to return to usual spot as the team’s starting left guard.”

“Edwards cleared the protocol and does not carry an injury designation heading into this Sunday’s game against the Cowboys at SoFi Stadium (1:25 p.m. pacific time, FOX), but his action drew attention in part because of the situation surrounding Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and how his head injury was handled in Weeks 3 and 4.”

“Nobody knows what the team is up against better than defensive coordinator Raheem Morris, who has been in the process of putting together a winning game plan for the Rams’ effort against the Cowboys this week. In his comments to the media on Thursday, Morris told reporters that he was impressed by what he saw out of Cooper Rush when he studied Dallas’ film, noting how impressive the quarterback’s grasp of the Cowboys’ schemes are for the limited time he has spent as a starter.”
