NFL exhibitions: Patriots' Julian Edelman, Chiefs' Spencer Ware injured during games


It would be downright foolish to think otherwise.

Since 1990, SI has correctly predicted just three Super Bowl winners from its preview issues: the 1993 and 1995 Dallas Cowboys, and those '04 Patriots.

Edelman, who tore the ACL in his right knee on the opening drive of the Patriots' 30-28 preseason victory over the Detroit Lions on Friday night, has always been the fail-safe of New England's offense. Cooks brings youth and raw explosiveness to the offense that the Patriots didn't have previous year, even when they won the Super Bowl. During a 2015 playoff game against the Baltimore Ravens, Edelman threw a touchdown pass to fellow wide receiver Danny Amendola. He has been a key contributor to New England over the last four seasons. Then, the same New England team was trailing by 25 points late in the third quarter of the Super Bowl, and they came back and won the game in overtime. His 60 receptions a year ago were second on the team among all pass catchers - behind only Edelman - and he set a single-game Super Bowl record with 14 catches in February at Super Bowl LI.

On Monday morning Brady appeared on Boston sports radio station WEEI and when asked about Edelman's injury, opened up more than he usually does.

Edelman made a catch down the middle of the field and cut upfield before landing awkwardly on his right leg and crumbling to the turf.

Today, Edelman was heard from.

"I feel 24 (years old)".

Perhaps one of the most famous moments from the New England Patriots' Super Bowl XLIX victory over the Seattle Seahawks came just a few seconds before the biggest play of the game.

Veteran receiver Danny Amendola said he expects Edelman to still be present among his teammates even if he can't play. "Guys are going to have to step up", said Hogan earlier this week. The Bills added Jordan Matthews in the Darby trade, but of the eight players who caught a TD pass a year ago, only two return: tight end Charles Clay, with four, and running back LeSean McCoy, with one. Danny Amendola is a long time Patriot who has suffered from consistent injury problems that has limited his on the field snap count. Yet, even clubs as talented as Bill Belichick's aren't immune to possible setbacks, and we'd say they suffered a fairly big one this preseason. Brady and offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels nearly made it work. Last season was one of his best with 98 catches for 1,106 yards. Also, Brady unforgettably has the most unstoppable force in the league at his disposal in tight end Rob Gronkowski when he's healthy.

The thought of Edelman becoming who he has was far fetched once upon a time. Brady is the greatest quarterback in the history of football, and still performs at a high level.

More importantly, it can help the unit in 2018 and beyond.
