Arizona Cardinals: 5 whose stock improved vs Chargers
His numbers weren’t Earth-shattering. However rookie running back Edmonds showed how valuable he is going to be behind starter Johnson.
Edmonds ran five times for 11-yards and one score on Saturday night. His score was a two-yard hard-fought run at the goal line.
They had to review the play to see if he scored but the replay showed he was off the ground with the ball stretched over the line. The score remained after the review.
Edmonds could put up some good numbers if he plays behind the first string offensive line. For his size just looking at him it’s hard to imagine him running over a lot of bigger guys but he held his own against the Chargers.
Hopefully the line will be able to open up a few more holes for him against the Saints on Friday. Right now he is second on the depth chart behind Johnson and that shouldn’t change going into week two of the preseason.
