Edwards Will Play Sunday Despite Arrest

Despite being arrested on drunken driving charges and now facing three misdemeanor charges that could land him in trouble with league headquarters, New York Jets’ wide receiver Braylon Edwards will dress and play this coming Sunday.

“In light of the facts as we have them, [coach] Rex [Ryan], [owner] Woody [Johnson] and I have decided he will not start,” Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum said. “He will dress, he will play at some point. When, we don’t know. This is an area we pour a lot of organizational resources into. We’re very disappointed in what happened.”
