Julian Edelman Was Dealing With Rib Injury Since Week 3 (Report)

New England Patriots receiver Julian Edelman may have been dealing with even more injuries during the 2019 season than was previously thought. A new report from ESPN Insider Adam Schefter, released Sunday, suggests Edelman suffered a partially-torn rib cartilage during the team’s week three game against the New York Jets. Already, it’s been reported that Edelman had been dealing with a separated AC joint in his left shoulder and a knee injury this season.

Here’s an excerpt from Schefter’s report:

"Edelman suffered a rib injury in September against the New York Jets and went to the locker room before halftime of that Week 3 game, grabbing his right rib area.”
"Tests revealed the torn rib cartilage, an injury that would sideline many players, especially playing a position such as wide receiver. But Edelman managed the injury through practice and on Sundays, as tough as it was, not missing any time during the 2019 season."

Despite all of his reported injuries, Edelman had 100 receptions and a career-high 1,117 yards during the 2019 season.

Edelman was last in the headlines on Sunday, when he was arrested in Beverly Hills, CA and cited for vandalism after jumping on the hood of a Mercedes.
