Edelman (ankle) was on the field for Wednesday's practice, Zack Cox of NESN.com reports. Wednesday's practice is the only session of the week for the Patriots, who are on bye. Edelman was forced out of this past Sunday's loss to the Titans, but the severity of his ankle injury has subsequently been downplayed. While it's expected Edelman will be limited to some degree at practice next week, the assumption remains that he'll be able to fill his usual starting role in the slot Nov. 25 against the Jets.
The ankle injury Edelman suffered Sunday against the Titans is not considered serious, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Per the report, Edelman is not expected to miss much, if any, time. Working in his favor is that the Patriots are on bye Week 11, which will afford Edelman added healing time in advance of the team's Nov. 25 tilt against the Jets. As that contest draws closer, we'd expect Edelman to be listed as a limited practice participant, but for now his chances of being ready to play Week 12 are looking favorable.
Edelman was forced out of Sunday's game against the Titans in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury. Prior to his exit from the contest, Edelman -- who was previously dealing with an ankle issue before being removed from the Patriots' injury report Friday -- caught nine of his 12 targets for 104 yards. He'll no doubt benefit from the added healing time provided by the team's upcoming Week 11 bye.
Edelman (ankle) does not carry a Week 10 injury designation in advance of Sunday's game against the Titans. After being limited Wednesday and Thursday, both Edelman and Cordarrelle Patterson (neck) were removed from the team's injury report Friday. As a result, the Patriots list six players as questionable this week, in a game that will feature a coaching matchup between Bill Belichick and one of his former players, Mike Vrabel. Now minus an injury designation, Edelman is poised to maintain his high volume role in the New England offense on Sunday.
Edelman (ankle) was listed as limited at Wednesday's walk-through practice, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. Edelman logged 64 of 71 snaps on offense in Sunday's win over the Packers, hauling in six of his 10 targets for 71 yards, rushing twice for 28 yards and completing a 37-yard pass. With no reported setbacks coming out of that contest, it's assumed his limitations Wednesday were mainly for maintenance purposes.
