Thursday PM update: The Raiders wrapped up another day of practice and Bryan Edwards got in a second straight limited practice. His status for Week 8 is unclear, but he’s trending in the right direction.

Las Vegas Raiders receiver Bryan Edwards is back in practice after missing multiple games with foot and ankle injuries. Edwards was a limited participant on Wednesday, according to The Athletic’s Vic Tafur. He could return to starting opposite Henry Ruggs III on Sunday in a Week 8 matchup against the Cleveland Browns if things go well.

Edwards got rave reviews in camp ahead of the season and emerged as serious downfield threat early in his pro career. He amassed 99 yards on five receptions in his first three NFL games only trails Ruggs in yards per reception with a mark of 19.8.

Hunter Renfrow and Nelson Agholor have stepped up during Edwards’ absence and rank second and third in receiving yards on the Raiders, behind Darren Waller. One of the two could see regression if Edwards eases back into his starting spot against one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL this year. Renfrow has played fewer snaps than Agholor in recent weeks and could be the odd man out with a completely healthy receiving corps.
