Edelman limped from the field after suffering the non-contact injury on an 18-yard catch and run. He briefly spent time in the sideline medical tent before being carted to the locker room. The wideout was seen being carted to the team bus with crutches at the end of the Patriots’ 30-28 win over the Detroit Lions.
The injury is a tough blow for Brady’s favorite target. Edelman was eating up Lions defenders, catching three passes for 53 yards on the opening drive before the injury.
“I mean, I feel like he was trying to push me a little bit and made the play,” Gronkowski continued. “I just don’t understand why there wasn’t a flag. A couple times in the game. They are calling me for the craziest, craziest stuff ever and it’s just like, crazy. I mean, like what am I supposed to do? And then they don’t call that, I mean. It was just frustration and that’s what happened.”
Including the final call, Gronk earned three penalties in the second half. The other two flags wiped out two Patriots receptions for a combined 18 yards.

It would be a really terrific controversy if it were revealed Brady had baby naming rights baked into Gilmore’s contract. That would be weird.
Week 3 is wrapping up and chaos rolls on. Backfields continue to turn over and the new realities the NFL reveals constantly remind us not to cling to our conceived notions. It’s a reminder that pain is always present in the joy that is fantasy football.

It’s just those sort of symptoms that the Deep Dive is prescribed to help alleviate. NFL Fantasy’s editorial overlord Alex Gelhar dutifully attacks the waiver wire to give you the top adds for the coming week in hopes of bolstering your roster. However, in this area, we’ll look at options to help those of you looking to go a little bit further down the rabbit hole, whether you play in a deeper format or are at the mercy of your incredibly sharp league-mates who scour the waiver wire relentlessly. A player can only qualify for the deep dive if they’re owned in less than 10 percent of NFL.com leagues.
