Edwards practiced with the Bears through training camp and played in all three preseason games, registering seven tackles, 2.0 sacks, 2.0 tackles-for-loss and three quarterback hits.
After serving his suspension, Edwards’ return will add depth and talent to a defensive line that also features Akiem Hicks, Bilal Nichols, Eddie Goldman, Angelo Blackson and rookie Khyiris Tonga.
“We’ve got a bunch of crazy dogs in that room, man,” Edwards said. “We love to play football and we love competing against one another. We give each other a challenge.”
Injury update: Speaking of Goldman, he was limited in practice Thursday for the second straight day with a knee injury that kept him out of the season opener in Los Angeles. Receiver Darnell Mooney (groin) and outside linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu (hamstring) were also limited.
