WR Julian Edelman, TE Aaron Hernandez sidelined with injuries

Patriots WR Julian Edelman and rookie TE Aaron Hernandez, the team’s two biggest targets so far this preseason, both missed practice last week with undisclosed injuries. The team held both Edelman and Hernandez out of practice the entire week, as well as the team’s 36-35 loss to St. Louis last Thursday. According to, both players attended practice and watched from the sideline, an indication that neither player’s injury is that serious. With the returning WR Wes Welker (who calls Edelman his “mini-me”) and WR Randy Moss surely drawing the majority of focus from opposing defenders, both Edelman and Hernandez will be valuable secondary weapons for Tom Brady this regular season.
