Julian Edelman WR NE 12 Days

Edelman caught nine passes (on 11 targets) for 98 yards in Sunday's 45-7 win over the Colts in the AFC Championship Game.

With Super Bowl XLIX against the Seahawks not until Feb. 1, Edelman -- who missed time Sunday after suffering a hip injury -- should benefit greatly from some added rest, which he will be afforded by the Patriots' upcoming bye week.

Edelman returned to Sunday's AFC Championship Game after departing with a hip injury.

Edelman missed just seven offensive snaps before returning to action. The team is yet to offer an official injury diagnosis, but it doesn't appear to be anything serious.

Edelman departed Sunday's game against Indianapolis with a hip injury and is questionable to return, Newsday's Bob Glauber reports.

Edelman left midway through the first half after making four catches on six targets for 27 yards. While the nature of the injury is unknown, the fact that he's considered questionable to return indicates that it's likely nothing overly serious.

Edelman (concussion) had eight catches for 74 yards in Saturday's 35-31 playoff win over the Ravens. He also threw a 51-yard touchdown pass to Danny Amendola.

The Patriots abandoned the run early in this game, going to the air 51 times. Edelman was a major beneficiary, getting targeted 14 times as a receiver and uncorking a perfect pass to Amendola on a trick play that tied the game at 28 late in the third quarter. He'll again be one of Tom Brady's most frequent targets next weekend against either the Broncos or Colts.

Edelman (concussion) is active for Saturday's game against Baltimore, Boston.com writer Erik Frenz reports.

Edelman went into Saturday as probable, so he was expected to play. He'll be very necessary as the Patriots try to move the ball against a Baltimore defense that tends to be more lenient through the air than against the run.

Edelman (concussion) is listed as probable for Saturday's playoff game against the Ravens, the Patriots' official site reports.

As is Brandon LaFell, which sets the stage for the Patriots' top two wideouts to suit up Saturday, with Edelman -- who caught 92 passes for 972 yards with four TDs in 14 contests this past season -- a candidate to see his share of targets in his return to the field, following a two-game absence.

Edelman (concussion) was limited at Wednesday's practice, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

While it's possible that Edelman could draw a questionable designation in advance of Saturday's game against the Ravens, per the Patriots' official site, the wideout fully expects to play this weekend. We'll let you know if that assessment changes.

Edelman (concussion, thigh) participated in Wednesday's practice, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

Edelman was inactive for Week 17's game against the Bills, but following the Patriots' first-round playoff bye, the wideout has been practicing and is on track to suit up Saturday against the Ravens.

Edelman (concussion, thigh) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bills.

With the Patriots having already clinched the top playoff seed in the AFC, the team is playing it safe with banged up starters like Edelman. Meanwhile fellow wideout Brandon LaFell is active Sunday, while Danny Amendola is a candidate to see added looks in Week 17, along with the likes of Brian Tyms and Josh Boyce.

Edelman (concussion, thigh) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills, the Patriots' official site reports.

We'll track the status of Edelman -- who was out last week -- as Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff approaches, but in the event that he returns to the team's active list this weekend, it's unclear how much the Patriots would be inclined to utilize Edelman in their regular season finale, with the team having already clinched the top playoff seed in the AFC.
