Mario Edwards Jr. Posts Workout Video on Instagram

Oakland Raiders defensive lineman Mario Edwards Jr. shared a video of himself doing a drill on Instagram.

The Oakland Raiders and their fans have been waiting for the return of Mario Edwards Jr. for weeks now, who is yet to play in 2016 due to a hip injury.

It’s been a slower than expected rehab, and this is the first positive sign that Edwards is getting closer to getting back on the field.

Here is the video that Edwards shared on Instagram.

Edwards certainly still has a ways to go, but this is a start. At this point, there is no need to rush him back out there. The Raiders are 9-2 without him, so it’s best to just wait until he is absolutely 100 percent healthy.
