EDELMAN OUT WITH BROKEN ARM
Rookie WR Julian Edelman will not be catching passes or returning punts for some time (an undisclosed amount of time, as you may have already guessed), as the Patriots announced that he has a broken arm. Not surprisingly, there's no word as to when he broke it, how he broke it, where (in the arm) it's broken, or when he might be returning.
There's also no word on who will take his spot, as the pass-heavy Pats now have only 3 active receivers. Brandon Tate is an eventual possibility, and there are options from the practice squad. Don't be shocked to see more passing to the tight ends, and guys like Laurence Maroney or Kevin Faulk split out wide, or in the slot.
