The New England Patriots suspect that wide receiver Julian Edelman suffered a torn ACL. The team will officially now the severity of his injury on Saturday, as an MRI is planned.
This will be a huge loss for the Patriots. Edelman has been Tom Brady’s favorite target when the two are on the field together.
He signed a two-year, $11 million deal in the off-season.
Edelman was injured in the Patriots third preseason game. He was injured against the Detroit Lions at Ford Field.
He had three receptions for 52 yards before the injury in the opening drive of the game. As Edelman went out for another catch, and making a cut, his right knee buckled.
This was a non-contact knee injury. Typically, these are always followed by torn ACL news.
With Edelman suspected to be out for the season, the team will have to rely on Brandin Cooks, who they acquired in an offseason trade with the New Orleans Saints in the offseason. Chris Hogan is expected to receive increased playing time, as well.
The 31-year-old California native has spent his entire career with the Patriots. He had 98 receptions in 16 games, including 13 starts last season. He had a career-high 1,106 receiving yards and three touchdowns.
In his career, he has appeared in a 103 games, including 59 starts. He has 425 receptions for 4,540 receiving yards and 24 touchdowns.
