Ravens head coach John Harbaugh confirmed after Wednesday's practice that Edwards is not in the NFL's concussion protocol, Ryan Mink of the team's official site reports.
Edwards was a full participant in the Ravens' first Week 4 practice, and Harbaugh's comments following the session indicate that the running back is in the clear for Sunday's game in Cleveland since he won't be subject to the five-step protocol. The 27-year-old carried 11 times for 51 yards before exiting late in the fourth quarter of this past weekend's 22-19 overtime loss to the Colts to be evaluated for a concussion, but he was apparently never diagnosed with a brain injury.

Edwards (concussion) was listed as a full practice participant Wednesday.
Edwards was evaluated for a concussion during this past Sunday's game against the Colts, so it remains to be seen if he's fully cleared the NFL's concussion protocol at this stage. Still, Edwards' full participation in Wednesday's practice suggests that he should be available for Sunday's game against the Browns, barring any setbacks. Meanwhile, fellow RB Justice Hill (foot) remained sidelined for the session.
Edwards (head) is at practice Wednesday, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.
Edwards left Sunday's loss to the Colts in the second half to be evaluated for a concussion and didn't end up returning during the fourth quarter or overtime. Melvin Gordon filled in as the lead back down the stretch, with the Ravens having already lost J.K. Dobbins to a Achilles tear Week 1 and Justice HIll to turf toe Week 2. Hill missed another practice Wednesday and thus seems less likely than Edwards to suit up this Sunday in Cleveland.
Edwards is being evaluated for a concussion during Sunday's game against the Colts.
Prior to his exit from the contest, Edwards carried 11 times for 51 yards. In his absence, Melvin Gordon and Kenyan Drake are available to handle Baltimore's backfield duties, with Justice Hill (foot) inactive Sunday.
Edwards could have less competition for backfield snaps and touches Sunday against the Colts, as fellow running back Justice Hill (foot) has been ruled out.
Per Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com, Hill suffered a toe injury in practice during the week leading up to Sunday's game against Indianapolis. Through two weeks, Hill has notched 19 carries to Edwards' 18. While Edwards is expected to handle the bulk of rushing attempts, veterans Melvin Gordon and Kenyan Drake are on hand to handle passing situations.
Edwards rushed 10 times for 62 yards and a touchdown but wasn't targeted in Sunday's 27-24 win over the Bengals.
Edwards had one fewer carry than Justice Hill in Baltimore's first game since J.K. Dobbins (Achilles) went down for the season, but the former mustered 21 more rushing yards to lead the team. While Edwards is a non-factor in the passing game (18 career catches in 54 games), his 6-foot-1, 238-pound frame makes him an effective short-yardage back, and Edwards converted from one yard out to open the scoring in the first quarter. A near-even split with Hill moving forward would make Edwards a serviceable option if he continues to get goal-line carries, and the Ravens could go with a run-heavy approach as home favorites against the Colts in Week 3.
Edwards rushed eight times for 32 yards in the Ravens' 25-9 win over the Texans on Sunday.
The veteran backup was thrust into a larger role than expected when J.K. Dobbins was forced from the game with what has now been confirmed as a season-ending Achilles tendon tear. Edwards has never averaged under 5.0 yards per carry in his previous four seasons as a complementary option, but he'll now potentially have a chance for the heftiest workload of his career moving forward. Edwards could be in line to serve as the primary early-down back in a Week 2 road matchup against the Bengals, although Justice Hill should see his fair share of touches and there's a possibility Melvin Gordon and/or Owen Wright are summoned from the practice squad.
Edwards rushed four times for 21 yards and brought in his only target for seven yards in the Ravens' 20-19 preseason win over the Eagles on Saturday night.
Edwards was the second Ravens running back to log a touch Saturday behind Justice Hill, and he put together a efficient showing overall with his limited opportunity. Edwards will be playing out the final year of his contract in 2023 and is reportedly finally all the way back from his September 2021 ACL tear, and he likely has the inside track to the No. 2 running back job behind J.K. Dobbins (PUP-undisclosed) once the regular season begins.
Edwards (undisclosed) returned to practice for June minicamp, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.
He missed OTAs the week prior, with coach John Harbaugh suggesting it was a matter of caution rather than a setback or serious injury. Edwards missed all of 2021 and the first six games of 2022 after suffering an ACL tear in the 2021 preseason, then sat out an additional three games last November with a hamstring injury. He and the Ravens reached an agreement in March to reduce his salary for the upcoming season, the final year of his contract, though the remaining money is guaranteed and he can earn the rest back via incentives. Edwards thus stands as the favorite to land second on the depth chart behind J.K. Dobbins, who missed June minicamp with a soft tissue injury that Harbaugh doesn't consider serious. Behind those two, the Ravens have fifth-year pro Justice Hill and undrafted rookies Keaton Mitchell and Owen Wright
