Julian Edelman WR NE 10 Hrs

Edelman (concussion) has officially been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets.

As the Boston Herald reported earlier in the day, Edelman did not travel with the team, and the Patriots made the official announcement Saturday night that he will not play. Edelman's absence boosts the value of Rob Gronkowski and Brandon LaFell (shoulder).

Edelman (concussion/thigh) is expected to sit out Sunday's game against the Jets, the Boston Herald reports. According to the Herald, Edelman did not travel with the team to New York.

The Herald cites two sources who say Edelman likely won't play, and the paper's report that Edelman didn't travel makes it a near certainty, if true. If Edelman ends up sitting as the Herald expects, it would solidify the already significant fantasy value of Rob Gronkowski and Brandon LaFell. LaFell is technically questionable with a shoulder issue, but the Herald expects him to play.

Edelman (concussion, thigh) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets after practicing in a limited fashion this week, the Patriots' official site reports.

The Patriots list 12 players as questionable this week, but given that Edelman, who has been playing through a thigh ailment, is also listed as a having a concussion issue, his status is definitely worth confirming in advance of Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff. If he ends up out or limited all this weekend, teammate Danny Amendola would be a candidate to see added looks in the Patriots' Week 16 offense.

Edelman (concussion, thigh) was present for Thursday's practice, the Boston Herald reports.

While that's a positive sign, it's unclear whether or not Edelman has been fully cleared (under the NFL's concussion protocol) to play Sunday against the Jets. Either way, we'd expect the Patriots to list the wideout as questionable for the contest, as they did last week when Edelman played through a thigh issue. Fortunately for those inclined to roll with Edelman this weekend, the Patriots kick off at 1:00 ET on Sunday.

Edelman (concussion, thigh) was limited at practice Wednesday, the Boston Herald reports.

Edelman's thigh injury is something that he has been playing through, but the concussion is a new issue that makes the wideout's Week 16 status worth monitoring, given that Edelman must pass through the NFL's concussion protocol before he is cleared for Sunday's game against the Jets.
