Statistically, the New England Patriots have a bottom-of-the-barrel passing offense Josh McDaniels’ offense won the league’s second-lowest yardage (1,261), the fewer touchdowns per pass (three) and 11 interceptions, a league high Now this unit is being hit hard as veteran wide receiver Julian Edelman is about to miss time with a knee injury, according to The Athletic’s Jeff Howe

Edelman, who was out of practice on Thursday after being restricted on Wednesday due to the knee issue, underwent a precautionary knee procedure Thursday morning, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter Edelman is expected to miss some time, but Howe reports he shouldn’t miss the rest of the season Of course Edelman missed the entire 2017 season due to a torn ACL It is not known at this time if this current issue is in that same surgically repaired right knee

Even with the change in New England quarterback from Tom Brady to Cam Newton, Edelman has clearly struggled this season and the team limited him throughout in the Patriots’ first six games, Edelman received just one start playing in 6,812% of offensive shots, the team’s third-largest receiver Meanwhile, he hauled 21 of his 39 targets for 315 yards.However, much of those Season totals came in Week 2 when he recorded 179 receiving yards against Seattle Since that game, Edelman has not passed 35 receiving yards In the last two games, Edelman has combined for just three receptions for 21 yards

To make matters even worse for the Patriots’ passing game, 2019 first-round pick N’Keal Harry is in concussion protocol, leaving Damiere Byrd and Jakobi Meyers as the two best players in Nova -England as they prepare to play Buffalo Bills in crucial game to keep pace in AFC East
