Patriots' Julian Edelman: Offseason procedures on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edelman is expected to undergo a pair of offseason procedures, Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald reports.

Per the report, the Patriots' top pass catcher is in line to have a scope to identify and help remove a loose body in his left knee, as well as undergo a procedure to repair the AC joint in his left shoulder. In other news, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports that Edelman, who was "arrested Saturday night in Beverly Hills, California, and cited for misdemeanor vandalism" is as a result scheduled to appear in court April 13. With the Patriots eliminated from the playoffs, Edelman -- who Zack Cox of NESN.com adds played most of the 2019 season with partially torn rib cartilage -- should have ample time to recover physically in advance of training camp, while the fallout from Saturday's incident, while something to follow, doesn't seem likely to be major.

Patriots' Julian Edelman: May need offseason surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edelman could require offseason surgery after dealing with shoulder, knee and rib issues during the 2019 campaign, Jeff Howe of The Athletic reports.

Per Howe, Edelman's assortment of injuries were "serious enough that they would have ended some other players' seasons." As is it, the 33-year-old toughed it out through all 16 of the Patriots' regular-season contests, as well as the team's wild-card loss to the Titans. On the heels of a 100-catch, 1,117-yard campaign, Edelman will now look to recover from his aches and pains this offseason, with or without surgical repairs. Ultimately, Edelman's 2020 outlook will hinge on the status of long-time franchise quarterback Tom Brady, who is eligible to become a free agent March 18.

Patriots' Julian Edelman: Rushes for score in playoff loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edelman caught three of his five targets for 30 yards in the team's wild-card round loss to the Titans. He added two rushes for 12 yards and a score.

Edelman was uncharacteristically quiet, out-targeted by N'Keal Harry and logging only the fourth most receiving yards on the team. It's unclear how much nagging shoulder and knee injuries derailed his performance, but Edelman had an untimely drop early in the third quarter that stalled an otherwise promising drive. Edelman is under contract through the 2021 season, and cutting him prior to the end of the 2020 league year would result in $8.3 million of dead cap. Thus, he is likely to be back in New England regardless of the status of long-time quarterback Tom Brady.

Patriots' Julian Edelman: Suits up versus Titans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edelman (knee/shoulder) is listed as active for Saturday's playoff game against the Titans.

Edelman has been banged up of late, but there's wasn't much doubt that he'd tough things out in the Patriots' playoff opener. As QB Tom Brady's most trusted target, Edelman figures to see his share of looks in the passing game Saturday night, in the absence of any in-game setbacks.

Patriots' Julian Edelman: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edelman (knee/shoulder) is one of six New England players listed as questionable for Saturday night's playoff game against the Titans after practicing in a limited fashion this week, Zack Cox of NESN.com reports.

That said, the report notes that Edelman, who has battled his share of aches and pains of late, indicated Thursday in a radio interview the he feels "better than (he has) in the last few weeks." With that in mind, we have little doubt that the Patriots' top pass catcher will be available this weekend, an outcome that will be confirmed about 90 minutes prior to Saturday night's 8:15 ET kickoff.

Patriots' Julian Edelman: Logs limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edelman (knee/shoulder) was limited at practice Wednesday.

Edelman has been banged up of late and certainly would have benefited from a first-round bye in the playoffs. Alas, the Patriots' Week 17 loss to the Dolphins has set the stage for a wild-card matchup Saturday versus the Titans. Though Edelman will likely be officially listed as questionable for the contest, there's little doubt regarding his availability for the Patriots' playoff opener.

January 1, 2020 12:16 PM
Patriots' Julian Edelman: Limited at practice Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edelman (knee/shoulder) was a limited participant at Tuesday's practice.

Edelman played through knee and shoulder issues in Week 17 but secured only three of seven targets for 27 yards, while also losing a fumble. The fact the 33-year-old is beginning the week as a limited participant bodes well for his availability in this weekend's wild-card matchup with Tennessee. However, the lack of a bye week likely means Edelman will remain less than 100 percent in the playoffs.

Patriots' Julian Edelman: Rough outing in Week 17 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edelman (knee/shoulder) secured three of seven targets for 26 yards in the Patriots' 27-24 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday. He also committed a fumble, but it was recovered by the offense.

Edelman had another atypically unproductive day, giving him a pair of sub-30-yard tallies over his final three games of the regular season. The veteran did reach the 100-reception mark for the second time in his career with Sunday's production, while his 1,117 receiving yards were a career high. Edelman will look to step his production back up in next weekend's wild-card matchup against the Titans.

Patriots' Julian Edelman: Listed as active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edelman (knee/shoulder) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Given that the Patriots are looking to secure a first-round playoff bye with a Week 17 win -- or a Kansas City loss -- Edelman will unsurprisingly tough things out Sunday. He's seen a bit of a dip in his snap share over his last two outings, but as long as he's able to remain on the field, Edelman will remain QB Tom Brady's most trusted target, a context that led to the 33-year-old pass-catcher logging a team-high six targets in last weekend's 24-17 win over the Bills, en route to securing five catches for 72 yards.

Patriots' Julian Edelman: Listed as questionable this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edelman (knee/shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins after logging limited practices this week.

The 12-3 Patriots head into Week 17 looking to clinch a first-round playoff bye, which they'd accomplish with a win Sunday (or a Kansas City loss). In that context, we have little doubt that Edelman will be active this weekend, an outcome that should be confirmed about 90 minutes prior to the team's 1:00 ET kickoff.

December 27, 2019 04:28 PM
Patriots' Julian Edelman: Listed as limited Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edelman (knee/shoulder) was limited at practice Thursday, Andrew Callahan of The Boston Herald reports.

Chances are, Edelman will remain limited at practice Friday and head into Sunday's game against the Dolphins listed as questionable. Still, we have little doubt that he'll suit up this weekend, with the 12-3 Patriots trying to secure a first-round playoff bye, which they'd accomplish with a Week 17 win (or a Kansas City loss).

December 26, 2019 11:16 AM
Patriots' Julian Edelman: Listed as limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edelman (knee/shoulder) was listed as a limited participant on Wednesday's estimated practice report, Zack Cox of NESN.com reports.

There's a pretty good chance that Edelman will approach Sunday's game against the Dolphins with a questionable tag. Even so, it's expected the Patriots' top receiver will continue to tough things out and suit up this weekend, barring any setbacks.

Patriots' Julian Edelman: Five catches in division clincher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edelman hauled in five of six targets for 72 receiving yards during Saturday's 24-17 win against Buffalo.

The wily veteran receiver entered New England's pivotal Week 16 matchup dealing with knee and shoulder issues, but he continues to be a reliable, high-floor option nonetheless. Outside of a two-catch performance against the Bengals last Sunday, Edelman has produced at least five receptions and 47 receiving yards in every game dating back to Week 5, while also providing six total touchdowns during that span. With New England still having potential to secure a first-round bye in the regular-season finale, there is motivation for Tom Brady to push the ball to his most-trusted target in Edelman in a matchup against Miami's No. 24 pass defense.

Patriots' Julian Edelman: Returns to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edelman (head) returned to Saturday's game versus the Bills, Greg A. Bedard of the Las Vegas Review-Journalreports.

After being called for offensive pass interference in the third quarter, Edelman stayed on the ground for a bit. Eventually, the Patriots yanked him from the game to be evaluated for a head injury, but tests have given the wideout the all-clear. Edelman's presence will be key for a receiving corps lacking in trust from Tom Brady.

Patriots' Julian Edelman: Under evaluation for head injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edelman went to the locker room to be evaluated for a head injury during Saturday's game against the Bills, Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com reports.

Edelman took on a Bills defender head-on in the third quarter and was called for offensive pass interference in the process. He remained on the turf for a spell before attempting to play through it, but eventually he underwent an examination in the blue sideline tent. If he's indeed diagnosed with a concussion, he'll be subject to the league's protocol for head injuries in order to return to the field.

December 21, 2019 03:12 PM
Patriots' Julian Edelman: Suits up against the Bills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edelman (knee/shoulder) is listed as active for Saturday's game against the Bills.

As expected, Edelman will tough it out in Saturday's AFC East matchup featuring the 11-3 Patriots and 10-4 Bills. His playing time share took a bit of a dip (he logged 40 of a possible 65 snaps) in Week's 15 win over the Bengals, so it remains to be seen if New England's productive pass catcher -- who recent reports have indicated has been dealing with some tendon damage in his left knee -- will be any closer to full strength this weekend. As long as he's able to remain on the field, however, Edelman will continue to profile as QB Tom Brady's most trusted target.

December 21, 2019 11:36 AM
Patriots' Julian Edelman: Expected to play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edelman (knee/shoulder) is expected to play Saturday against the Bills, Michael Giardi of NFL Network reports.

Official confirmation of his Week 16 status will arrive about 90 minutes prior to the Patriots' 4:30 ET kickoff, but it looks like Edelman -- who seemed affected by his aches and pains in Week 15's win over the Bengals -- will continue to tough things out against the Bills. Even if he's still less than 100 percent at this stage, he should factor in Saturday as QB Tom Brady's most trusted target.

December 19, 2019 05:44 PM
Patriots' Julian Edelman: Listed as questionable for Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edelman (knee/shoulder) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Bills after practicing in a limited fashion this week.

We'd expect Edelman to continue to tough things this weekend, though his Week 16 "questionable" injury designation is legitimate enough for fantasy managers to want to verify his status prior to Saturday's 4:30 ET kickoff. Edelman's normally robust workload took a bit of a dip (40 of a possible 65 snaps) in this past Sunday's win over the Bengals, so it remains to be seen if the Patriots' top pass catcher -- who has reportedly been dealing with some tendon damage in his left knee -- will approach Saturday's tilt any closer to full strength, and in turn log an increased allotment of snaps.

December 18, 2019 07:08 PM
Patriots' Julian Edelman: Remains limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edelman (knee/shoulder) remained limited at practice Wednesday, Zack Cox of NESN.com reports.

Edelman toughed it out in a 34-13 win over the Bengals last weekend, playing 40 of a possible 65 snaps but offering little production (two catches for nine yards). The 62 percent snap share still represented a reduction from his usual workload, and it's worth wondering how close to full strength he'll be once Saturday's game against the Bills arrives. Per Mike Giardi of NFL Network, Edelman is believed to be dealing with some tendon damage in his left knee, an injury that could hinder his effectiveness even though he's expected to continue playing through it.

Patriots' Julian Edelman: Limited to begin Week 16 prep
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edelman (knee/shoulder) was listed as a limited participant in Tuesday's practice.

While it's normally a positive sign for any player to begin the week with some level of activity during practice, Edelman's limited work shouldn't be taken as evidence that he'll approach Saturday's game against the Bills at close to full strength. In the Patriots' 34-13 win over the Bengals this past weekend, Edelman was visibly hobbled as he moved about the field, finishing the day with two catches for nine yards on five targets while playing only 62 percent of New England's offensive snaps. Michael Giardi of NFL Network relayed Monday that Edelman had been playing through tendon damage in his left knee, an issue the wideout will attempt to manage for the final two regular-season contests and any playoff games that follow.
