Patriots WR Julian Edelman had his shoulder surgery last week, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. A previous report said the procedure would repair a separated AC joint in Edelman's left shoulder. The rehab isn't expected to be lengthy, per Schefter, and Edelman is expected to be ready for the start of the offseason program. He also reportedly needs knee surgery this offseason. We'll keep an eye on that.

Patriots WR Julian Edelman will undergo surgeries on his left shoulder and left knee this offseason, according to the Boston Herald. The shoulder surgery will repair a separated AC joint; the knee will be scoped to remove a loose body. Neither procedure should have a big impact on Edelman's offseason. But they're 2 more bullet points to add to the 33-year-old's lengthy injury history. Edelman also dealt with a rib cartilage injury throughout most of the 2019 campaign -- but actually played all 16 regular-season games for just the 3rd time in his career.

Patriots WR Julian Edelman (knee, shoulder) says his health is on the rise heading into Saturday night's Wild Card game against the Titans. “I feel better than I have in the last few weeks, and I feel good enough to go out and compete at a high level," he said. Edelman struggled down the stretch, totaling just 18 targets, 10 catches and 107 scoreless yards over his last 3 games. It's worth noting, though, that he's been a monster in the playoffs, averaging 8.2 catches and 103 yards across his last 13 games.

Patriots WR Julian Edelman left in the 3rd quarter against the Bills for concussion testing. He collided head first with a Buffalo defender while running a route and left shortly thereafter. We'll watch to see if he makes it back. Jakobi Meyers appears to be picking up extra snaps in Edelman's absence.

Update: Edelman returned in the 4th quarter.

Patriots WR Julian Edelman (knee, shoulder) is active for today's game against the Bills. He was never in danger of missing this one. But Edelman was limited in practice all week and won't be at 100% today. Consider him more of a WR2 in Week 16 fantasy lineups.

Patriots WR Julian Edelman (knee, shoulder) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Bills. He's fully expected to play, but that knee injury is a real concern. Edelman played just 62% of the offensive snaps and finished with 2 catches for 9 yards last week. Downgrade him to lower-end WR2 status for Week 16.
