According to ESPN, citing a source, Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman recently had surgery on his left foot.
This relates to the injury that sidelined the slot receiver for seven games to close out last regular season before he returned to play in each of New England's playoff games.
It was a known possibility throughout Edelman's recovery and return last year that given the nature of his foot injury another procedure could be required.
Edelman had 17 receptions combined in the two playoff games, including seven in the AFC title game loss in Denver. After that contest he was walking with a noticeable limp.
Though he's going to reportedly "return for training camp," it will be interesting to see what Edelman's participation is as the OTA program transitions to mini-camp and then the start of training camp.
