New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman was limited at practice yesterday after sustaining a concussion on Thanksgiving against the New York Jets, while tight end Aaron Hernandez and wide receivers Wes Welker and Brandon Lloyd continue to be limited due to lingering injuries.
Edelman and fellow wide receiver Matthew Slater were limited at Wednesday’s practice due to concussions. Edelman exited last Thursday’s contest against the Jets with what was listed as a head injury. He’s questionable to play this weekend.
Hernandez (ankle), Welker (ankle) and Lloyd (knee) were among the 12 Patriots’ players limited at practice Wednesday, also including safety Patrick Chung (shoulder/hamstring), linebackers Dont’a Hightower (hamstring) and Brandon Spikes (knee) and defensive lineman Kyle Love (knee).
Six Patriots did not practice Wednesday, including offensive linemen Dan Connolly (back), Logan Mankins (ankle/calf), Sebastian Vollmer (back/knee) and Markus Zusevics (illness), defensive lineman Chandler Jones (ankle) and tight end Rob Gronkowski (forearm/hip).
