Edelman Active, Battling Through “Grotesque” Shoulder Injury, Knee IssuesGeoff Burke - USA TODAY Sports

Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman is an intricate part of New England’s offense and it’s safe to say that he’s certainly been proving his toughness more than ever this season.

Edelman, who missed a day of practice this week as he continues battling through injuries, is in Cincinnati and will be out there today against the Bengals.  The veteran receiver is reportedly dealing with a “tendon injury” in his knee but it doesn’t end there.  He’s also apparently dealing with a shoulder injury which, according to NBC Boston’s Tom Curran, appears to be pretty significant.

Curran said on Wednesday during his weekly appearance on Dale & Keefe on WEEI that he saw Edelman in the locker room and the fact he’s been out on the field to this point shows just how tough he really is.

“I just don’t think you can sit down the most important player in the offense with a shoulder injury, which is a fairly grotesque looking injury,” said Curran, when asked about Edelman’s absence at practice this week. “I happened to see him the other day in the locker room and it looks like, did you ever see that [episode of] Family Guy where he grows another head on his shoulder?  That’s what it looks like.  He’s got another tiny little Julian head on his shoulder.”

“It’s a weird-looking situation.  I don’t know if it’s a bone bruise, I don’t know if it’s a blood swell, it’s weird.  It’s swollen up on the bump on his shoulder.  It’s swelled up significantly.”

Curran also pointed out that given how depleted the Patriots have been at the receiver position all year, Edelman’s role has been critical and the fact he’s continued to be able to answer the bell has been key to New England’s success this season.

“But if you look at the role that he’s carried, you know, 90 catches, 1010 yards, 3 games to go, it’s pretty remarkable,” said Curran.

As for Edelman, he’s ready to go.

Kickoff is scheduled for 1:00pm today.
