Julian Edelman reportedly has serious shoulder injury

Julian Edelman expressed frustration this week with reporters repeatedly asking him about the injuries he is battling, but the ailments sound like they are legitimate cause for concern.

Edelman has been receiving almost around-the-clock treatment for knee and shoulder injuries in recent weeks, and Michael Giardi of NFL.com said Sunday that a source told him the shoulder issue is “worse than you can possibly imagine.”

Considering Edelman has been able to play and lift his arms, that seems like a bit of an exaggeration. However, it would not be a surprise if he needs surgery on both his shoulder and knee after the season.

Edelman’s knee injury is said to involve structural damage, and he was also evaluated for a concussion following a nasty collision during last week’s win over the Buffalo Bills.

With the Patriots’ offense having struggled for the majority of the season, the 33-year-old Edelman is arguably the team’s most important player outside of Tom Brady. It’s fair to wonder if he has been playing at anywhere close to 100 percent, and that will be something to monitor in the postseason.
