Patriot's wide receiver Julian Edelman broke a bone in his foot in the first quarter of yesterdays 27-26 win over the Giants. Obviously, this is terrible news, but don't panic yet because he could be back for the playoffs.

Edelman suffered a 'jones fracture.' Typically, after surgery, which Edelman is having today, it takes 8 to 9 weeks before you're back on the field, however, Dez Bryant of the Cowboys, returned after just 7 weeks.

So, figure 9 weeks (worst case) puts us at around January 10th, Wildcard Weekend. Don't panic yet, if all goes well, he should be available for the playoffs, not a 100 percent, but you know Edelman is going to do everything he can to be back for another Superbowl run.
