Edelman Should Be Fine, But Cautious

Julian Edelman and the Patriots avoided a major scare today as Edelman simply tweaked the foot, but he needs to be cautious for the rest of the preseason.

Patriots fans and coaches were holding their breath today when Julian Edelman had to leave practice with an injury to his surgically repaired foot, but the news is good as it is being reported that Edelman had numbness/pins and needles in his foot. 

Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald tweeted:

That is great news, but Edelman isn't out of the woods yet as far as his foot, and he needs to be very cautious going forward over the next month. The last thing the Patriots can afford is not having a healthy Edelman, especially during the first four weeks when Jimmy Garoppolo is going to need all the help he can get. We'll continue to keep an eye on this situation, but it appears that Edelman is OK.
