Bad news for Patriots fans and the fantasy community, as Tom Brady’s No. 1 target appeared to reinjure his left foot in a joint practice with the Saints on Tuesday.
Edelman toasted Saints rookie Vonn Bell in a WR-DB 1v1 drill and then this happened…
Julian Edelman has gone off to the side with disgust, threw helmet. Trainer Jim Whalen looking at lower left leg as Edelman sits on cart.

Edelman took off his left shoe. Still by the cart. Yesterday was his first full practice

Edelman walked off the field. Didn't need the cart after all but might be done for the day.

Tests on Patriots WR Julian Edelman showed today's scare was just that – a scare. Sources say he's OK. We'll see if he even misses any time.

So far, it looks like the Patriots dodged a major bullet.
