Edwards to play this week?

It is possible Browns wide receiver Braylon Edwards could get some reps in this week’s game at Buffalo.

“We’ll have to see how the practice week goes,” Crennel said after the morning practice as the Browns went through the last of their two-a-day sessions. “If the week goes well and he is feeling good, we might have to give him one or two reps to see if he can move around against some different competition, in a more competitive situation.”

After suffering his ACL injury last season, Braylon has been making a quick recovery and, from all indications, it looks like he will be ready to go by the opener against the Saints. For him to get on the field this upcoming Saturday would be another huge step for him as he nears the end of his rehab process. Edwards is inching closer and closer to full form but he must get a feel for game speed first and foremost. It would be beneficial for him to get a few opportunities against Buffalo just to get his feet wet again and his body used to contact in a game situation.

If you would have said Braylon Edwards would be suiting up to play in the third preseason game, let alone the opener, I would have thought you were crazy. Pegged at first to return around Week 6 or so, it’s amazing he’s back so soon.
