The Facts: Edelman is ready to go. The reigning Super Bowl Most Valuable Player practiced for the first time all summer on Monday and, per the NFL transaction wire, passed his physical and is off the Patriots' non-football injury list.
Diehards Line:Edelman's last action came in the Patriots' 13-3 win over the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LIII, as he posted 10 catches for 141 yards. In May, Edelman inked a two-year extension to stay in New England, but had yet to take part in Patriots practices after sustaining a broken thumb in July. Monday was a step in the right direction for the Patriots and quarterback Tom Brady having their top receiving option on the field for the season opener.
