Edelman (knee) caught two of six targets for 23 yards and rushed once for minus-1 yard in Sunday's 36-20 win over the Raiders.
Edelman came crashing back down to earth after totaling a career-high 179 receiving yards in Week 2. His A-game wasn't necessary in this one, as New England accumulated 250 yards on the ground and played with a double-digit lead for the whole fourth quarter. Game script will likely dictate a larger role for Edelman in Week 4 against the Chiefs.
Edelman (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Raiders.
Edelman, whom the Patriots listed as questionable, also approached last Sunday's game against Seattle with that designation before ultimately playing and catching eight of his 11 targets for a career-high 179 yards in New England's 35-30 loss. Game flow will determine his Week 3 volume, but even in the post Tom Brady-era, Edelman remains a favored target in the team's Cam Newton-led passing attack.
Edelman (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders after logging limited practices this week.
The same applies to fellow wide receiver N'Keal Harry (ankle). Edelman approached Week 2's game against Seattle listed as questionable as well, ultimately suiting up and hauling in eight of his 11 targets for a career-high 179 yards in the Patriots' 35-30 loss. With no reported setbacks since then, it would be a big surprise to see Edelman sit out this Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET contest.
Edelman (knee) remained limited at practice Thursday.
Edelman was busy in Week 2's loss to Seattle, and we'll operate under the assumption that his practice reps are just being managed and he'll suit up Sunday against the Raiders. It's possible, however, that the Patriots will choose to officially list Edelman as questionable for the contest.
Edelman (knee) was listed as a limited participant at practice Wednesday.
The same injury limited Edelman's practice activity last week and resulted in him being listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Seahawks. He ultimately suited up and hauled in eight of his 11 targets for a career-high 179 yards in the Patriots' 35-30 loss. With no reported setbacks in the contests, Edelman's limitations Wednesday may have been maintenance-related.
Edelman hauled in eight of his 11 targets for a career-high 179 yards in Sunday's 35-30 loss to Seattle.
Edelman, who approached the contest listed as questionable with a knee issue, ended up logging 52 of a possible 72 snaps on offense, while N'Keal Harry recorded 61 and Damiere Byrd was on the field for 62 snaps. On a week where QB Cam Newton attempted 44 passes (completing 30), there were plenty of wide receiver looks to go around after a run-heavy Week 1 win over Miami. With no injury setbacks reported Sunday, Edelman will remain a key pass-catching weapon for Newton this coming Sunday against the Raiders.
Edelman (knee) is listed as active Sunday in Seattle.
As expected, Edelman will be available to the Patriots' pass game Week 2. In the team's season-opening win against the Dolphins, he played just 58 percent of the offensive snaps but managed to be targeted by Cam Newton on seven of his 19 passes. If Edelman increases one or both of those shares, he'll augment his PPR value even further in his new environment without Tom Brady.
Edelman (knee) is expected to play Sunday night against the Seahawks, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.
As is fellow wide receiver N'Keal Harry (shoulder), though it's still advisable to confirm the duo's status in advance of Sunday's 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff. In Week 1's win over the Dolphins, Edelman was on the field for 37 of 64 snaps, a lower playing time share than he typically sees, but he was still targeted a team-high seven times, en route to catching five passes for 57 yards, while adding a 23-yard carry.
Edelman (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game against the Seahawks after practicing in a limited fashion all week, Zack Cox of NESN.com reports.
As is fellow wide receiver N'Keal Harry (shoulder), though we'd be surprised if either misses Sunday's game. Though Edelman was only on the field for 58 percent of the Patriots' offensive snaps in Week 1's win over the Dolphins, he logged five catches (on a team-high seven targets) for 57 yards, while adding a 23-yard carry. Assuming Edelman suits up Week 2, he'll remain a key target for QB Cam Newton, who seems likely to throw more passes than he did against Miami, when he logged just 19 attempts.
Edelman (knee) was limited at Thursday's practice, Ryan Hannable of WEEI.com reports.
Edelman is going through his precise practice plan from a week ago, when he followed back-to-back limited sessions with no designation whatsoever Friday. In Week 1 against the Dolphins, he played 58 percent of the offensive snaps en route to five catches (on seven targets) for 57 yards and a 23-yard carry. Friday's injury report will reveal Edelman's status heading into the weekend.
Edelman (knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice.
The Patriots held Edelman back in the first two practices of Week 1 before removing him from the injury report entirely Friday. He proceeded to play 58 percent of the snaps on in Sunday's win over the Dolphins, which led to five catches (on seven targets) for 57 yards and one carry for 23 yards. The 80 yards from scrimmage was something Edelman accomplished seven times in 17 games (including playoffs) last season, while he had at least five receptions on 12 occasions. As a result, he's more reliable in PPR formats, especially as he continues to develop a rapport with Cam Newton.
Edelman caught five of seven targets for 57 yards and added a 23-yard carry in Sunday's 21-11 win over Miami.
Edelman was the leading receiver in a quiet but efficient performance for the Patriots' passing attack, but the ground game stole the show, as Cam Newton rushed for two touchdowns and Sony Michel added a third. While the slot receiver offers a high floor as Cam Newton's most reliable target, the Patriots should rank near the bottom of the league in passing volume if this game was any indication; Newton logged only 19 passing attempts, completing 15 of them. Edelman will face the Seahawks in Week 2.
Edelman (knee) heads into Week 1 minus an injury designation.
Edelman was limited at practice Wednesday and Thursday, a trend toward managing his reps that could become a pattern, but the Patriots' top pass catcher was never in danger of missing Sunday's season opener against the Dolphins. The 34-year-old racked up a career-high 1,117 receiving yards last season on 100 catches to go along with six TDs. He did that with Tom Brady at QB and will now have to adjust to catching passes from Cam Newton. To date, the two appear to have solid on-field chemistry, but some sort of statistical regression is plausible. Edelman does, however, remain a vital cog in the New England offense and thus should maintain steady weekly volume.

There's little doubt that Edelman will play Sunday against the Dolphins, so at this stage it remains to be seen whether he approaches the contest officially listed as questionable, or free from a Week 1 injury designation.
Edelman (knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice, Andrew Callahan of the Boston Herald reports.
Per Ben Volin of The Boston Globe, Edelman's practice reps were managed during training camp, but his expectation is that the Patriots' top pass catcher will be fine for Sunday's season opener versus Miami. We'll track Edelman's status leading up to the contest, but we suspect that he'll head into Week 1 either listed as questionable (but in line to play) or free from an injury designation.
Edelman (undisclosed) practiced fully Wednesday, Christopher Gasper of WCVB Channel 5 Boston reports.
Edelman was present for the start of practice Tuesday before exiting the workout soon after, but his quick return to the field suggests that his injury was minor or that he was simply being rested. The wideout will spend training camp looking to build his rapport with quarterbacks Cam Newton and Jarrett Stidham.
Though Edelman (undisclosed) was present for the start of practice Tuesday, he "was noticeably absent after that," Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.
It's possible that the Patriots' top pass-catcher was simply getting a routine break, with an eye toward keeping him fresh and healthy in advance of Week 1. Assuming he has no lingering injury concerns, once Edelman resumes practicing fully, he'll look to continue building his rapport with Cam Newton and Jarrett Stidham, as the team prepares to open the season without long-time franchise signal-caller Tom Brady. While Edelman will no longer have Brady throwing him passes, regardless of who helms the team in Week 1, the 34-year-old should retain a stable floor in PPR formats, though his volume/upside could take a bit of a hit if the team's offense trends toward run-heavy in 2020.
Edelman (shoulder) has been working out with teammates, including quarterbacks Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer, Mass Live's Christopher Smith reports.
Edelman seems to have rebounded from minor shoulder surgery in January without any problems, gearing up for his age-34 season. He'll be playing without Tom Brady on the roster for the first time in his career, but there's no shortage of volume potential in an offense that otherwise lacks proven pass-catching threats. Edelman's 153 targets last season were good for fourth in the league, and he was on pace for 166 before knee and shoulder injuries slowed him down over the final three weeks of the year. Given his age, lengthy medical record and shaky QB situation, Edelman will have a tough time replicating his 2019 production even if he continues to see steady volume on a per-game basis.
Edelman (shoulder) won't be prosecuted after being cited for misdemeanor vandalism in January, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.
Edelman was arrested back on Jan. 11 in Beverly Hills, after reportedly jumping on the hood of a vehicle and causing damage. According to Thursday's official filing, "the owner of the vehicle has informed the DA's Office that he does not want the arrestee to be prosecuted for the proposed vandalism charge. The arrestee has no known criminal history. Case filing declined in the interests of justice." The 33-year-old wideout is bouncing back from a minor shoulder procedure that he underwent in January, and is expected to be ready for action whenever the Patriots next take the field. At that time, Edelman will no longer have Tom Brady throwing him passes, and he'll look to build chemistry with second-year signal caller Jarrett Stidham, while also re-connecting with veteran Brian Hoyer, who's back in the team's QB mix after spending last season with the Colts.
Edelman had shoulder surgery last week, with the expectation of being ready for the Patriots' offseason program this spring, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
The extent of Edelman's participation in the offseason program is a legitimate question mark, but there isn't any reason to believe his rehab process will extend beyond spring practices. In addition to the recent procedure to repair the AC joint in his left shoulder, Edelman was expected to have arthroscopic surgery to remove a loose body in his left knee. It isn't clear whether the second procedure has taken place yet, but it should happen soon enough if it hasn't already. The offseason has already been quite busy for Edelman, who was arrested Jan. 11 and cited for misdemeanor vandalism, an infraction that probably isn't severe enough to warrant discussion of an NFL suspension. In any case, he'll turn 34 in May as he enters the first season of a two-year, $15.5 million extension. Meanwhile, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady can become an unrestricted free agent in March, if he so desires.
