Patriots' Edelman Suffers Setback

New England Patriots fans everywhere are groaning in frustration.
It had looked like wide receiver Julian Edelman would be recovered in time for summer training from the broken injury he sustained last season. However, the Boston Globe's Shalise Manza Young reported Tuesday that Edelman suffered a setback by reinjuring his right foot. He has been seen in a walking boot. The 26 year old was placed on the injured reserve in December.
Edelman will miss the on-field organized team activities New England is holding in the coming weeks, but he may be able to participate in a limited basis in the mini-camp from June 11-13.
Edelman has a reputation for being an injury-prone player, and because of that, he only received interest from one other team during the free agency period, the New York Giants. The wide receiver did not even receive a contract from the Giants.
Edelman needs to focus on staying healthy this season. He can post some impressive numbers when he is in full form. The Patriots have learned how to use him over the entire field and running deep routes. Previously they had used him exclusively on short routes, but he showed promise by improving his long speed last season.
Edelman was a seventh-round draft pick in 2009. He has missed 16 of 64 regular season games in his four years playing for the Patriots, but when healthy, is one of the best punter returners in the NFL.
