Patriots WR Julian Edelman

Julian Edelman will miss “some game action,” per The Athletic’s Jeff Howe. Edelman has struggled to get going this year and may have his nagging knee injury to blame. This is bad news for a team already struggling with inconsistency on offense. The do-it-all wideout is not expected to miss the remainder of the season, though he may need surgery.
