Injury update: Patriots think WR Julian Edelman tore ACL vs Lions

The Patriots wide receiver is hurt.

How about that New England Patriots come from behind 30-28 win over the Detroit Lions?!

Posted by Pats Pulpit: For New England Patriots News on Friday, August 25, 2017

The Patriots fear that WR Julian Edelman tore his ACL, per multiple reports. Edelman will undergo tests and have an MRI on Saturday to confirm, but neither Edelman nor the team is “optimistic” about the results.

UPDATE Edelman himself thinks that he has torn his ACL:

Original: New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman looked outstanding on the opening drive against the Detroit Lions as he collected all three targets for 52 yards. Unfortunately, he apparently injured his right knee on what appeared to be minimal contact.

Edelman left the game and went to the medical tent. He was then taken to the locker room on a cart.

EDIT1: The Patriots say Edelman is questionable to return.

EDIT2: The Patriots have downgraded Edelman to OUT.

We will update this story when available.
