- New England Patriots star receiver Julian Edelman will miss the upcoming NFL season after suffering a serious knee injury, the team confirmed. Edelman, 31, reportedly tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during New England's pre-season game against the Detroit Lions on Friday. "#Patriots confirm Julian Edelman suffered an injury to his right knee in last night's game and will miss the 2017 season," the team said in a post on Twitter. The injury came in a non-contact incident in the team's opening drive. Edelman limped from the field before being ferried back to the locker room on a medical cart.
