ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the outlook for Julian Edelman (foot) is "positive," and New England's slot receiver "is not expected to miss much, if any time."
It's not surprising. Edelman did enter last week's game managing a foot/ankle issue, but his injury did not appear significant on the field. Edelman left in the fourth quarter with the game already out of hand. The Patriots are now on their Week 11 bye. We fully expect to see Edelman starting in Week 12. Nov 12 - 4:04 PM

Julian Edelman caught 9-of-12 targets for 104 yards in the Patriots' Week 10 loss to Tennessee.

Edelman entered the game with an ankle injury. In the fourth quarter, he may have aggravated the injury, went to the sideline, and eventually the locker room at the end of New England's blowout loss. Edelman took an unruly number of shots over the middle from physical Titans CB Logan Ryan. Edelman was able to walk on his own power. We suspect he'll be good to go after the Pats' Week 11 bye.
Nov 11 - 3:55 PM

Julian Edelman (ankle) wasn't listed on the Patriots' final injury report for Week 10 against the Titans.

Edelman played through his ankle injury last week, so it was never a concern. He's a WR2 against the Titans.
Nov 9 - 4:23 PM

Julian Edelman (ankle) remained "limited" on Thursday.

Edelman isn't injured. He will be out there as a WR2 against the Titans.
Nov 8 - 4:22 PM

Julian Edelman (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Edelman was limited all last week before playing through a questionable tag and catch six balls for 71 yards against the Packers. He's a fine WR2.
Nov 7 - 5:09 PM

Julian Edelman caught 6-of-10 targets for 71 yards in Week 9 against the Packers.

Edelman got most of his yards in the first half. He had just two catches for 18 yards after halftime. Edelman has benefitted from Rob Gronkowski missing two of the last three games, but with Josh Gordon trending up, his rest of season outlook could take a hit. Edelman will be a high-floor WR2 against the Titans in Week 10.
Nov 5 - 12:06 AM

Julian Edelman (ankle) is questionable for Week 9 against the Packers.

Edelman got in limited practices Thursday and Friday. There hasn't been any concern from beat writers about his availability for Sunday night. He's one of 13 Patriots listed questionable. Ultimately, we expect Edelman to be out there playing his normal snaps coming off a 100-yard game.
Nov 2 - 4:37 PM

Julian Edelman (illness, ankle) returned to a limited practice on Thursday.

His absence on Wednesday always seemed like it had more to do with the illness than the ankle, and a quick return suggests that was the case. Edelman should be ready to face the Packers on Sunday Night Football.
Nov 1 - 12:58 PM

Julian Edelman (ankle, illness) didn't practice Wednesday.

This is likely more illness related than concern for his ankle. Edelman set season highs playing through a heel injury last week. He should be fine for a likely Week 9 shootout with the Packers.
Oct 31 - 4:44 PM

Julian Edelman caught 9-of-10 targets for 104 yards in the Patriots' 25-6, Week 8 win over the Bills on Monday night.

It was Edelman's first 100-yard game of the season since returning four weeks ago. The targets and catches are also new season-bests. He was dominating the middle of the field, as both Edelman and James White seemingly couldn't be stopped by the Bills. The only thing missing was pass-game touchdowns. Tom Brady didn't throw one. Edelman will be a solid WR2 next week against the Packers at home with obvious big upside in a likely shootout.
Oct 29 - 11:41 PM

Julian Edelman hauled in 5-of-8 targets for 36 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' Week 7 win over the Bears.

Edelman earned his early touchdown, making a man miss and going through a couple others on his way to a nine-yard score on a screen pass on the opening drive of the game. He was not able to build on his hot start, however. He was targeted just once after halftime, and he did not record a catch in the second half. He has yet to top 57 yards since returning. Edelman will always be a touchdown threat in this offense, but there is at least some reason for concern, especially with Rob Gronkowski expected back next week.
Oct 21 - 5:02 PM

Julian Edelman (heel) is active Week 7 against the Bears.

As are Sony Michel (knee) and Josh Gordon (hamstring). Rob Gronkowski (back) is out, however, meaning Edelman could see more targets than usual. He is an upside WR2 this week.
Oct 21 - 11:32 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms Julian Edelman (questionable, heel) is expected to play against the Bears in Week 7.

Sony Michel (knee) and Josh Gordon (hamstring) will also be active for Week 7. With Rob Gronkowski (back, ankle) sidelined, Edelman should see a steady diet of targets from Tom Brady Sunday in the Windy City. He's No. 19 in RotoPat's Week 7 wide receiver rankings.
Oct 21 - 8:11 AM

Julian Edelman (heel, questionable) is traveling with the Patriots to Chicago.

Like most of New England's skill players, Edelman was listed as 'limited' throughout the week. There's been no indication he'll actually miss the Pats' matchup against the Bears Sunday. Josh Gordon (hamstring) was also listed as questionable but, like Edelman, is fully expected to play.
Oct 20 - 1:38 PM

Julian Edelman (heel) is questionable for Week 7 against Chicago.

The Patriots limited Edelman in practice all week. There's been nothing to suggest he's in danger of sitting, but we likely won't know his status until Sunday. Josh Gordon (hamstring) was also listed as questionable but is expected to play.
