Captain Obvious here, but Edelman must be out probably until the playoffs at best

Wonder if the roster move is Edelman to IR

I wonder if Branch isn't injured as well--he's been on the "shadow roster' (still has a locker and all that) & I thought he would be the logical next guy up.

Too bad Edelman passed the concussion test. UGH.

Or done for the year. Dave Roberts Shoes was concerned about a Lisfranc and he is pretty much infallible. I think I owe him ten dollars for mentioning his name .

I'm pleasantly surprised by this - figured they'd go with Branch or Gaffney first. I love his effort after a catch so at the very least maybe they can put his locker next to Lloyd's so he might explain that you're allowed to run with the ball once you've caught it.

BB will probably shed lots of light on the injury in his next PC.

Branch is apparently still hurt, and I believe Gaffney is facing a suspension. So Gaffney wouldn't have been an ideal short term replacement for Edelman.

This was great.

IIRC, Stallworth was pretty effective with bubble screens back in the day; as an Edelman replacement, McD may leverage the same skills as well as spell Lloyd outside the numbers

Welker to return punts?

Missing Edelman there is where this really hurts.


The downside to being versatile is that it seems to often put stress on body parts that players who stay in one position seem to avoid. That is my perception at least. It could change with more precise evidence. Would make an interesting study - do payrs who plavy multiple positions get hurt more often? Or is that a reflection that they are on the field more often?

Infallible... Please, I'm blushing...

I'm worried about a Lisfranc only because that would be the worst possible likely foot injury - I didn't even see the play he got hurt on, so I can't even speculate in any meaningful way.

That being said, I'm always up for ten dollars.

We should have a much better idea tomorrow - if the corresponding move for activating Stallworth is not IR'ing Edelman, they must be anticipating his return at some point.
