Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman will not play against the Bills on Sunday after having knee surgery this week, but head coach Bill Belichick said on Friday that he expects Edelman back later this season.

Edelman has been dealing with the injury for the entire season and only caught six passes for 56 yards during the team’s last three games. Belichick said at his Friday press conference that he hopes he’ll be “back better than he was before the surgery.”

“Yeah, we’ll see how the return goes,” Belichick said. “I don’t think this is a season-ending situation, but we’ll see. I’m not a doctor. We’ll see how it goes here.”

Edelman is in his 12th season with the Patriots and has 21 catches for 315 yards overall this season.

  1. Jules may be done, I hope if this is it, that he comes back and goes out on a stronger note. If not, it’s been one helluva run.

  2. By the time he is healed enough to come back The Patriots record could be so bad it would not be worth risking further injury

  3. Washed up bum, just like the rest of the skill positions in NE. Brady made that team, they are finished. Belichick back to his old losing ways.

  5. Washed up Bum?

    I hate the Patriots, but c’mon Edelman is a stud with great worth ethic that makes up for his lack of physical attributes. Sure, the Patriots are done without Brady, but if Edelman wasn’t 34 years old… injury or not he would have great value in a Trade. I wish him well.
