Edelman, Ninkovich Leave Practice Hurt

Julian Edelman hurt his surgically repaired foot in practice this morning and had to be removed on a cart, and Rob Ninkovich also got dinged up and was seen hobbling off the field angry, which is never a good sign.

Patriots wide receiver and also a major key to their offense Julian Edelman returned to practice yesterday from the PUP list, and this morning he hurt the foot he had surgically repaired last season and during this offseason.

Edelman wasn't the only one to go down as defensive end/linebacker Rob Ninkovich also appeared to sustain a triceps injury.

Edelman and Ninkovich are both crucial to the Patriots success, so hopefully both injuries turn out to be minor. We will keep you updated on the injuries and anything else that occurs during the Patriots/Saints joint practice today.
