Tom Brady comments on potential loss of Julian Edelman

Nearly immediately, the wide receiver reached for the back of his right knee, suggesting that something was wrong.

Abdullah has played and practiced without restrictions this month, while the Lions have taken cautious approach with Riddick, sitting him out the first two games and playing him sparingly on Friday. Garoppolo led the Patriots down the field setting up Stephen Gostkowski for a 45-yard game winning field goal, which was up and good, sealing a 30-28 win for the Patriots.

Lions tight end Cole Wick was also ruled out after suffering a chest injury in the first half.

The#New England Patriots lost one of their most consistent stars to an injury on Friday night. But if Edelman is forced to miss any significant amount of time, the Patriots would be forced to embark on the 2017 season without arguably its most important offensive player not named Tom Brady.

"We've played together for a long time, and I think there's great chemistry in what we're doing", Brady said to ESPN.

Edelman caught a pass then fell to the ground in a non-contact injury on the Patriots' first drive of the game. Hogan hauled in four passes for 70 yards.

Despite impressive defensive performances against the Jets and Colts, Detroit's undermanned defensive group came back to Earth; Brady made them look reminiscent of the 0-16 Lions of 2008.

Coach Bill Belichick stated he did not have an injury update on Edelman at the post-game press conference.

Edelman rebounded to play in every game last season after missing part of the 2015 season with a foot injury. Adam Schefter tweeted the Patriots suspect the worst: A right leg ACL tear.
