Jets WR Edwards practices day after arrest

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Braylon Edwards is practicing with the New York Jets, a day after the star wide receiver was arrested for drunken driving.

Edwards is out on the field Wednesday, working with the Jets’ other wide receivers. General manager Mike Tannenbaum said Tuesday night that Edwards would be active but not start in the team’s next game at Miami on Sunday night.

Tannenbaum added that it would be up to coach Rex Ryan to determine when Edwards will enter the game and how long he will play.

Edwards was arraigned on drunken-driving charges Tuesday after a breath test showed he had a blood-alcohol level twice the legal limit after he was stopped on Manhattan’s West Side around 5 a.m., prosecutors said.
