Julian Edelman's season-ending injury sent shockwaves through the NFL, and while Patriots Nation knows Julian is relentless, losing him for the year is a tough pill to swallow. The Patriots go-to receiver with the Super Bowl catch seen around the world is a difference-maker on the field as well as in the locker room, and nothing proved this more than the reaction from Patriots players, former teammates and players around the league once news broke.
It didn't take long for Julian's teammates to take to social media to let him know they were with him. Throughout his career, Julian has, against all odds, picked himself up, dusted off and moved forward. This, they said, will be just another challenge he will overcome.
A few former teammates echoed this.
And even a few players from around the league showed respect in sending positive vibes to Julian, including Seahawk Richard Sherman and rookie Cowboy Ryan Switzer.
It's going to be tough to see Julian on the sidelines this season, but Patriots Nation will be cheering on IncrEdelman on his road to recovery.
