If the 31-year-old Kent State product is forced to the sideline with the latest ailment, offseason acquisition Brandin Cooks figures to take over as Tom Brady's top receiver.

The #New England Patriots opened the 2017 #NFL offseason with a splash. After coming up limping and grabbing the outside of his right knee, Edelman was carted into the locker room for further evaluations.

The Patriots said Edelman is questionable to return.

Since joining New England in 2009, Edelman has made exciting plays for the offense. Rookie free agent Austin Carr actually leads the team with eight receptions for the preseason.

The Patriots are now 0-2 in the preseason, but starters have seen very limited action between the two games.

The New England Patriots are facing off against the Detroit Lions in their third game of the National Football League preseason. IN that game last week versus Minnesota, Russell Wilson completed 13-of-18 passes for 206 yards with two touchdowns and zero interceptions.

Edelman, 31, led the Patriots with 95 catches and 1,106 receiving yards past year. Charcandrick West also had a big game, rushing seven times for 113 yards. However, in the two seasons before that injury, Edelman averaged 98.5 receptions for 1,014 yards in 2013 and 2014.
