Off the Record (OTR)

Edelman hurt

The good news for the New England Patriots Friday night was that they rung up 24 points in the first quarter on the Detroit Lions. There was some potential bad news though.

After catching a few passes for 52 yards, Julian Edelman went down with a knee injury. He hobbled off the field under his own power and had to go to the injury tent.

How bad is it? Not sure, but he ended up going back on the cart. Apparently, he was grabbing the back or side of his knee. Looks like his foot stuck in the ground.

It would be a huge loss for the Patriots if he’s gone for a significant time. They always seem to make do, but Edelman is a volume catcher and a safety valve for Brady.

We’ll keep you posted. Or, we won’t.

UPDATE: Torn ACL
