Source on Julian Edelman: “He’ll be good” … Another indication that the injury isn’t major and he hasn’t been ruled out for this week.
Edelman left this past week's game holding his rib area and didn't return. The hope was it was just precautionary since the team was well in control against the Jets, and X-rays turned out negative. Edelman was supposed to have a bunch of tests done Monday as well. Keep an eye on the situation as Edelman may miss practice time or be held out, but the hope is he plays Week 4 vs. Buffalo.
The good news was X-rays were negative on Sunday, but Edelman never returned to the game. The tweet added that one of the tests will possibly be an MRI to see if there is any damage to the rib cartilage.
Julian Edelman was noticeably in pain and then retreated to the locker room with about 30 seconds to play in the half. He was later ruled out for the rest of the game with what the team called a chest injury.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Edelman suffered a rib injury and that X-rays had come back negative.
Edelman's status for Week 4 may still be in question however so we'll be sure to monitor this throughout the week. The Pats are normally tight-lipped about injuries so we may not know anymore until Wednesday, and Edelman may miss practice time as well.
