    Too bad. Pozluzny broke his arm Week 1 and returned Week 5 so Edelman could be back soon after the bye depending on how it heals.

    Agreed. Time to activate Nunn from the practice squad, and get him snaps against Tampa Bay, then probably Miami after the bye.

    Damn, that sucks. Looks like it's Nunn's time to step up.

    Now it makes sense that writers reporting that Belichick was scrambling to find a wide receiver.

    FWIW, it sounds like Belichick isn't planning to put him on IR just yet:

    Good. If things play out just right, we could be getting him and Fred Taylor back in time for a playoff push. However, with this team and injuries, I doubt things play out just right. :(

    We'd have to be desperate to do that unless there's complications. A broken bone is usually 6 weeks or so and Poz came back quicker than that. Edelman should be back around Week 12.

    It's hard to say. Vrabel had a broken arm back in 2003 and only missed three weeks (the only games he missed in his eight years in Foxboro).

    Conversely, other folks have had broken arms and been placed on IR.

    I guess we'll have to wait and see and hope for the best.

    I rewatched the end of the game to see where this might have happened. He had a catch on a fourth down near the goal line with 5 or 6 minutes left where he seemed to fall awkwardly and got up slowly. He continued to play after that, shaking his arm as if it was bothering him, and actually had another short catch, after which he seemed to be in a lot of discomfort. When he went to the sideline, it looked like a trainer was checking with him and he didn't come back in (I had wondered why Welker took the last punt). He did stay on the sideline until the end of the game.

    So, at least, it's not a Junior Seau kind of broken arm.

    uh..before fullblown hysteria sets in...Edelman is a lesser talented mirror of Wes Welker. There are already wr's on the roster slotted outside so somebody gets the chance to step in and step up>Losing Edelman is NOT going to break the NE offense.

    And, for that matter, it'll give Belichick more time to refine the cloning process. :D

    Re: Edelman has broken arm

    Julian Edelman-WR-Patriots Oct. 20 - 8:48 pm et

    According to the Boston Herald, Patriots rookie receiver Julian Edelman is out indefinitely with a broken arm.
    It's a season-threatening injury for the college quarterback-turned-NFL slot receiver. Edelman was coming off his second most productive game of the season -- a six-catch, 43-yard outing in Sunday's blowout of Tennessee.

    Still no mention by Reiss, the Globe or even PFT yet. Hmmm. I think I'll just pretend I didn't see this until it appears in at least one of those other sources. Yeah, that's the ticket...feeling better already! :singing:

    Merge?

    (Though in case the merge doesn't happen, note that no other outlet is reporting this.)
