The Buccaneers placed Edmonds (knee) on injured reserve Wednesday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.
Edmonds was forced out of Week 2 action this past Sunday at Tampa Bay due to a knee injury and was ruled out after halftime. On Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported that Edmonds was slated for an MRI, specifically referring to his MCL. While the extent of the injury isn't clear, Edmonds will miss at least the next four games. The Buccaneers will continue to lean on Rachaad White out of their backfield, with Sean Tucker and Ke'Shawn Vaughn candidates for touches behind him.

Edmonds (knee) will undergo an MRI on Monday to test primarily for damage to his MCL, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Edmonds was forced out of Sunday's win over the Bears, and it appears that the Buccaneers are concerned about him potentially having suffered a long-term injury. If Edmonds ends up having to miss time, it could pave the way for Ke'Shawn Vaughn to be active on game days behind Rachaad White and Sean Tucker.
Edmonds (knee) will not return Sunday against the Bears.
Edmonds exited in the first half with the injury. His absence will leave all the work at running back for Rachaad White and Sean Tucker for the remainder of their Week 2 contest.
Edmonds exited Sunday's Week 2 contest against Chicago with a knee injury and is questionable to return.
Edmonds hurt his knee during the first half. Prior to his departure, he rushed twice for 12 yards. If Edmonds is unable to return, Tampa Bay will be down to Rachaad White and Sean Tucker at running back.
Edmonds rushed twice for eight yards and wasn't targeted in the Buccaneers' 20-17 win over the Vikings on Sunday.
Rachaad White and Sean Tucker handled the bulk of the Buccaneers' work in the ground game, with the former comfortably leading the way with 17 carries. That left Edmonds with a very modest touch count, and surprisingly, a total absence of targets. Offensive coordinator Dave Canales repeatedly made mention of Edmonds' diverse skill set in the ramp-up to the regular season, so the minor Week 1 role could prove to be an outlier as the season unfolds.
Edmonds (undisclosed) wasn't listed on the Buccaneers' first Week 1 injury report Wednesday.
Edmonds was held out of preseason Week 3 with an unknown injury, but it won't impact his availability for Sunday's season opener at Minnesota. While the Buccaneers backfield is paced by a clear No. 1 in Rachaad White, the breakdown of the reps behind him is up in the air. At the moment, Ke'Shawn Vaughn is away from the team for personal reasons, leaving undrafted rookie Sean Tucker as the sole competition for Edmonds. In his five-year career between the Cardinals, Dolphins and Broncos, Edmonds has averaged 4.5 yards per carry and hauled in 76.6 percent of his 188 targets in 70 games.
Edmonds (undisclosed) is seen as capable of handling multiple roles in the Buccaneers' backfield by the team's coaching staff, the team's official site reports.
Edmonds is expected to be available for the Week 1 matchup against the Vikings despite dealing with an undisclosed injury late in preseason, and practice reports later this week figure to serve as confirmation of such. When Edmonds does get on the field, it seems likely he'll fill a versatile role that matches his diverse skill set. Although the coaching staff clearly sees lead back Rachaad White as capable of thriving on all three downs, new offensive coordinator Dave Canales is planning on rotating Edmonds into some early-down rushing work in addition to his projected pass-catching duties. If that holds true, that could give Edmonds a regular edge in touches over fellow reserves Sean Tucker and Ke'Shawn Vaughn, who Canales describes as having "a lot of value on first and second down as runners" more so than as safety valves out of the backfield on passing downs.
Edmonds (undisclosed) was held out of practice Thursday, Greg Auman of Fox Sports reports.
Edmonds' injury details are unclear, but it's expected he'll be ready for Week 1 against the Vikings. The veteran is expected to take over the passing down role from Giovani Bernard this season and operate as the team's No. 2 running back behind Rachaad White.
Edmonds rushed six times for 18 yards and brought in his only target for four yards in the Buccaneers' 27-17 preseason loss to the Steelers on Friday night.
The veteran was the first back in with Rachaad White sitting out the contest, but as was the case for every Buccaneers runner Friday, he found running room at a premium. Despite the quiet start to the exhibition slate, Edmonds is still projected to play a significant role in the scheme of new coordinator Dave Canales, who's talked up Edmonds' versatility throughout the offseason.
