Julian Edelman (knee, IR) 'day-to-day' for Patriots

New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman (knee, injured reserve) is "day to day," per head coach Bill Belichick.

What It Means:

"Julian, I'd put him in the 'day-to-day' category," Belichick said. "But when he's ready, we'll start him. If he's not ready, then he'll keep working and we'll wait until he's ready." Edelman underwent knee surgery and was placed on IR in late October. The veteran receiver averaged 7.2 targets over the first month of the season, but he will likely have a reduced role upon return.

In four games since N'Keal Harry returned to the Patriots' lineup, Damiere Byrd has led the offense with a 26.4 percent target share. Jakobi Meyers is second (20.9) and Harry is third (17.6 percent). The Patriots face a Miami Dolphins defense in Week 15 that ranks 20th in FanDuel points allowed per game to the wide receiver position this season.
