Julian 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.
It’s a bit of a continuation of good news for the Patriots receiving corps after Josh Gordon was reinstated on Friday. Still, the team is waiting on Demaryius Thomas to return from the physically unable to perform list.
Last season, Edelman didn’t play the first four games of the regular season due to a suspension for violation of the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.
