Edwards, the second-round pick out of Oregon State, will likely start at left defensive end against the Lions. If so, he will battle stout right tackle Stockar McDougle, who in tandem with Jeff Backus, gives Detroit a set of first-round bookends.
Edwards will likely start in place of Anthony Weaver, who suffered a high ankle sprain in last week’s preseason game against the Eagles. With both McDougle and 2002 Pro Bowl guard Damien Woody on his side, Edwards is in for a demanding first NFL start.
Go Ravens! Be sure to watch the game on Saturday!
