Julian Edelman says his surgically-repaired foot is "feeling a day better than yesterday."
"I’m feeling a second better than the last second," said Edelman Saturday. "Hopefully when that time’s up, that time’s up." It's a classic Patriots non-answer and does little to clear up Edelman's status for training camp. Edelman sat out the last seven games of the 2015 regular season after undergoing foot surgery and had another procedure this offseason. Jul 17 - 10:32 AM

According to CSN New England, "sources have expressed confidence" that Julian Edelman (foot surgery) will be ready for training camp.

Both the Boston Herald and ESPN's Adam Schefter had similar reports last month. Edelman underwent a second foot surgery in April after he "didn't feel comfortable ... cutting to his left and pushing off the outside of the foot" during pre-OTAs workouts. Edelman does seem highly likely to be ready for Week 1, but his fantasy prospects carry more risk than usual entering the season.

The Boston Herald's Jeff Howe said "optimism is very high" Julian Edelman (foot) will be ready for training camp.

This echoes a report from Adam Schefter, who said Edelman is "on track" for camp. Edelman was able to come back for the playoffs after surgery to repair a broken foot he suffered Week 10, but he was clearly less than 100 percent. Hopefully the second procedure he underwent this offseason helps him gets him back to full health. While Edelman should be expected back for camp, foot injuries can be tricky. It is not out of the question he suffers a setback.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Julian Edelman underwent a second surgery on his previously broken foot, but is "on track" to return for training camp.

It was reported in February that Edelman wouldn't need a second procedure after breaking his foot in Week 10. He returned for the playoffs, but was nowhere near 100 percent. Edelman is in a "big boot." Foot injuries aren't anything to take lightly, but Edelman is one of the tougher -- even if more injury-prone -- players in the league. As of now, expect him to be ready well in advance of Week 1. But we're not going to rule out any setbacks.

The Boston Herald reports Julian Edelman does not need a second surgery on his previously broken foot.

Edelman was reportedly limping badly following the AFC Championship loss, but the limp was the result of expected wear and tear. He should be 100 percent by the time the offseason program rolls around. Edelman caught 61 passes for 692 yards and seven touchdowns in just nine regular season games.
Feb 25 - 11:18 AM

Julian Edelman caught 7-of-13 targets for 53 yards in the Patriots' AFC Championship Game loss to the Broncos.

Dueling with Chris Harris, Edelman was largely shut down on a day where the Patriots saw their offense derailed by an otherworldly Broncos pass rush. Edelman has been Tom Brady's No. 1 receiver, but has missed nine games with injury over the past two seasons, including the final seven of 2015. Edelman is elite at creating space over the middle of the field, but would probably ideally be New England's No. 2 wideout. The Pats should be searching for help for Tom Brady this offseason. Going on 30, Edelman is due an eminently reasonable $3.5 million between salary and bonuses in 2016.
Jan 24 - 6:59 PM

Julian Edelman (foot) is officially active for the AFC Championship Game.

Edelman's foot held up in last week's return from a seven-game absence. He should draw a minimum of 10-12 targets in Denver. Inactive for the Patriots are DL Ishmaa'ily Kitchen, LB Jonathan Bostic, S Tavon Wilson, WR Chris Harper, DE Geneo Grissom, G Tre' Jackson and OT LaAdrian Waddle.
Jan 24 - 1:37 PM

Julian Edelman (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Broncos.

No surprises here. Edelman drew the questionable tag last week and ended up with 10 catches for 100 yards in a win over Kansas City. He'll be on the field again Sunday as the Patriots look to sew up their second straight AFC title.
Jan 22 - 2:37 PM

Julian Edelman (foot) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

There was a report Edelman required an X-ray after last week's Divisional Round win, but he said it wasn't true. It looks like he'll be all systems go for Sunday's title tilt, where he'll be heavily featured for a team that can't run the football.
Jan 21 - 4:47 PM

Julian Edelman (foot) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Edelman had a few drops against the Chiefs last week but still led the Patriots with 10 catches for 100 yards. Considering New England's limited options in the running game (and Denver's expertise in that area), Edelman should see plenty of work in the AFC Championship.
Jan 20 - 5:21 PM

Julian Edelman played 51-of-58 offensive snaps in Saturday's Divisional Round win over the Chiefs.

The only wide receiver who was on the field more was Brandon LaFell (52 snaps). Edelman recorded a game-high 16 targets in his return from a broken foot and had no trouble getting open against one of the league's better secondaries. Edelman was seen hovering around the X-ray room after the game but said he did not require any X-rays. Assuming he didn't suffer a setback, Edelman should see plenty of work next week against Pittsburgh or Denver.
Jan 17 - 8:30 AM

Julian Edelman says he didn't require X-rays after Saturday's Divisional Round win over the Chiefs.

Reporter Karen Guregian spotted a barefoot Edelman walking to the X-ray room, but it was apparently a misunderstanding. Edelman will have his practice reps rationed this week, but until further notice, he should be considered good to go for next Sunday's AFC Championship Game.
Jan 16 - 8:43 PM

Julian Edelman caught 10-of-16 targets for 100 yards in the Patriots' Divisional Round win over the Chiefs, but was spotted afterward heading for X-rays.

Edelman was absolutely sensational in his return from a seven-game absence, getting open at will. He committed multiple drops, but was the No. 1 reason the Pats kept the chains moving so efficiently. It's unclear what Edelman needs X-rayed, but another foot issue would obviously portend poorly for his AFC Championship Game status. Edelman's status figures to be updated multiple times over the next 24 hours.
Jan 16 - 8:21 PM

Julian Edelman (foot) is active for Saturday's Divisional Round game against the Chiefs.

Edelman hasn't played since Week 10, but there wasn't much doubt about his status. Danny Amendola (knee) and Rob Gronkowski (knee, back) are also active. The Patriots inactives are OG Tre' Jackson, LB Jon Bostic, OT LaAdrian Waddle, WR Chris Harper, S Tavon Wilson, DE Geneo Grissom, and DT Ishmaa'ily Kitchen.
Jan 16 - 3:32 PM

Julian Edelman (foot) is listed as questionable for Saturday's Divisional Round game against the Chiefs.

There isn't much doubt about Edelman's status. Earlier this week he said he was ready to go "full throttle." New England's slot receiver should have a big role in the passing game on Saturday, particularly if Rob Gronkowski (knee, back) isn't able to suit up.
