New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman will be out for Week 8’s matchup against the Buffalo Bills.
Patriots' WR Julian Edelman underwent a precautionary standard knee procedure this morning, per source. It is expected to sideline Edelman for “some period of time”, including Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 29, 2020
Honestly at this point, it’s not worth rostering Edelman anymore. The Patriots offense is a mess and he clearly is banged up. “Some period of time” is never a good thing to hear so best just cut bait and free up the roster spot. This now leaves just Damiere Byrd, Jakobi Meyers, and Gunner Olszewski as the Patriots lone healthy receivers. I would expect a heavy dose of the ground game this week (though I did like what I saw from Meyers against the 49ers).
