Edwards has been hampered by a back injury and sat out in the Ravens' 24-10 loss to the St. Louis Rams over the weekend. The former Oregon State standout started a career-high 13 games last season and recorded 58 tackles in place of injured starter Trevor Pryce.
Dan Cody, the often-injured outside linebacker-defensive end, is likely to replace Edwards.
The Ravens placed linebacker Terrence Melton (hand) and nose guard Kelly Talavou (shoulder) on injured reserve, cutting journeymen wide receiver Darnerien McCants and tight end Aaron Walker.
McCants was a fifth-year pro who played for the Washington Redskins and the Philadelphia Eagles.
NFL teams have until Saturday to trim their rosters to the 53-player league limit.
