Source – Julian Edelman of the New England Patriots undergoes precautionary knee procedure, expected to be missed on Sunday


FOXBOROUGH, Mass .– New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman underwent a precautionary knee procedure Thursday morning, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter, and is expected to miss Sunday’s road game against the Bills from Buffalo.The Patriots practice in the rain Thursday and Edelman is not on the field with his teammates. He practiced on a limited basis on Wednesday.

Edelman, 34, has been restricted all season because of his knee, and a source told ESPN he should be sidelined for “a while”. He leads the team with 21 receptions for 315 yards.

The Patriots could also be without wide receiver N’Keal Harry on Sunday as he remains sidelined with a concussion. That would leave the Patriots with only Damiere Byrd, Jakobi Meyers and Gunner Olszewski on receiver, which would likely lead the team to promote someone from the practice squad.
