The Raiders apparently will be starting the season without one of their starting defensive linemen.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Edwards currently is expected to miss 4-6 weeks after suffering a strained hip on Friday night against the Cardinals.

Edwards, a second-round pick in 2015, appeared in 14 games with 10 starts as a rookie. He left the game in Arizona during the first half.

Based on the unofficial preseason depth chart, Denico Autry is the next man up.
