New England Patriots star receiver Julian Edelman is dealing knee and shoulder injuries heading into Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

As noted by Ben Baby of ESPN, Edelman, who did not practice Wednesday, was limited Thursday with knee and shoulder injuries.

Edelman is a gamer, so it seems unlikely these injuries will keep him off the field Sunday when the Patriots play the Bengals in Cincinnati.

The Pats will struggle on offense if Edelman does not play and have struggled lately even with him in the lineup. He leads all players on New England’s roster (by a wide margin) with 90 receptions this year, which he’s turned into 1,010 yards and six touchdowns.
