Boston Globe - [Full Article]

Patriots rookie wide receiver Julian Edelman stepped in for the injured Wes Welker Sunday and caught 10 passes for 103 yards. The Patriots threw his way 15 times, all after Welker left the game in the first quarter.

In three games without Welker, Edelman has averaged seven receptions for 74 yards. The Patriots were 1-2 in those games, but Edelman’s production gives hope to the idea he can serve as an adequate replacement for Welker.
