Edwards spent Saturday night at the Cleveland Clinic and was released Sunday afternoon. The stay was precautionary and the injury wasn't thought to be serious, Browns coach Romeo Crennel said.
``Everything is pretty well fine other than the fact he has stitches,'' Crennel said. ``He was in good spirits last night when I spoke with him and he's anxious to get back.''
Edwards, who earned his first trip to the Pro Bowl last season, slowed up after beating Stallworth in the Saturday afternoon sprint. Stallworth, who was wearing cleats, stepped on the back of Edwards' foot, causing the gash, witnesses said.
Kick returner Joshua Cribbs wrapped his shirt around Edwards' foot to stem the bleeding.
Edwards caught 80 passes for 1,289 yards and a franchise-record 16 touchdowns last season. He made a nice one-handed grab for a touchdown in Thursday's preseason 24-20 loss to the New York Jets.
