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.

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.
Jan 15 - 4:41 PM

Julian Edelman (foot) remained limited on Thursday.

Edelman is fully expected to return from his seven-game absence for the Divisional Round. With Rob Gronkowski (knee) ailing, Edelman could be Tom Brady's No. 1 option against the Chiefs.
Jan 14 - 4:41 PM

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

Edelman hasn't played since Week 10, but was cleared earlier this week. The question is how effective he'll be coming off a two-month layoff. Edelman expects to get his normal snaps against the Chiefs.
Jan 13 - 6:08 PM

Julian Edelman said he will go "full throttle" if he is active for Saturday's Divisional Round game against the Chiefs.

"There’s no dipping the toe here," said Edelman. "It’s diving right in." Edelman reportedly looked good in practice Monday, and all indications are he will suit up and play a full complement of snaps against Kansas City. It is a tough matchup, but Edelman will be one of the top receiver plays this weekend.
Jan 12 - 9:01 AM

WHDH Boston's Joe Amorosino reports Julian Edelman (foot) has been cleared to play in the Divisional Round.

Edelman has been sidelined since Week 10, but he has been practicing on a limited basis for several weeks. He will wear a steel plate in his left shoe to prevent aggravating the injury, but Edelman should be available for a full workload. It is a huge boost for Tom Brady and the entire offense.
Jan 11 - 9:06 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Julian Edelman (foot, out) is "on track" to return for the Divisional Round of the playoffs.

The same goes for LT Sebastian Vollmer (knee, out), per Schefter's report. Neither Edelman nor Vollmer will dress for Sunday's regular season finale against the Dolphins, but both players appear likely to be ready following New England's first-round bye. Getting back Edelman will be huge for a Patriots offense that has struggled to beat the blitz since Edelman went down.
