Julian Edelman Injury: Patriots WR Has Simple, Encouraging Update On Thumb


Sep 6, 2019

It sounds like Julian Edelman will be a full go in Foxboro on Sunday night.

The New England Patriots wide receiver had a bit of an injury scare in the fourth preseason game, however, it didn’t end up being anything serious. That scare came on the heels of the 33-year-old missing the first few weeks of training camp with a thumb injury.

Ahead of the Pats’ season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Edelman was asked on WEEI’s “The Greg Hill Show” how his thumb was doing. He gave a short, yet promising update.

“It’s a thumbs up, man. Thumbs up,” Edelman said.

Kickoff from Gillette Stadium is set for 8:20 p.m. ET on Sunday night.
