The Patriots focused on bringing new receivers in all offseason, and it appears it will be a bit before they’re able to get one of their old ones on the field again.

According to Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald, Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman is back in a walking boot, after what was termed a “clean-up procedure” on his right foot.

Edelman broke that foot in December against the Dolphins. He’s still expected to be ready for training camp, though he could miss OTA time. The Patriots still have a month before minicamp.

Edelman was a free agent, but re-signed with the team The Patriots let Wes Welker go, but brought in Danny Amendola and several other free agents, along with draft picks Aaron Dobson and Josh Boyce.
