Robert Edwards (born October 2, 1974) is a former National Football League running back for the New England Patriots and Miami Dolphins. He was the Patriots first round pick in the 1998 NFL Draft and was emerging as an NFL star before he suffered a gruesome, freak injury while playing flag football at the 1998 Pro Bowl. The injury almost forced him to have one of his legs amputated. He amazingly recovered however, and returned to play for the Miami Dolphins in 2002. Roberts currently plays in the Canadian Football League (CFL) for the Montreal Alouettes and is one of the CFL's best running backs. In the 2006 CFL regular season he rushed for 1,155 yards and scored 17 total touchdowns.
