McDaniels on Julian Edelman after his injury: "I think it's important to understand that there's nobody that's going to go in and just take Julian's place... any time that you incur an injury to a player as versatile as Julian... it's never going to be one person's responsibility to go in there and make up for that production."
Edelman in 2016: Nobody plays harder than Edelman and unfortunately that's led to some injury trouble for the dynamic slot receiver. His foot injury derailed what was shaping up as a terrific season for Edelman, as he had seven touchdowns in half a season. His obvious comfort with Tom Brady will continue to make him the top target going forward and a full season of work will have him back around 100 catches next season.
