BOSTON (CBS) — Breathe a big sigh of relief, New England. Julian Edelman was back at Patriots practice on Thursday.
Edelman was one of seven players limited at Thursday’s practice. The wide receiver sat out Wednesday’s session with knee and shoulder injuries, the first practice he’s missed all season. Edelman has been taking a beating all season, and limped off the field during Sunday’s loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
The bumps and bruises throughout the season haven’t slowed Edelman down too much. He has 90 receptions on 111 targets for 1,010 yards and six touchdowns this year. He is one again Tom Brady’s favorite target, on pace for a career-high 166 targets for the season.
Here is the full list of players who were limited at Thursday’s session:
LB Ja’Whaun Bentley, Knee
DL Byron Cowart, Concussion
WR Julian Edelman, Knee / Shoulder
OL Ted Karras, Knee
CB Jason McCourty, Groin
WR Mohamed Sanu, Ankle
DL Danny Shelton, Shoulder

While Edelman was back on the field Thursday, starting left tackle Isaiah Wynn was not. He missed the session with an eye injury, after he was a full participant on Wednesday.
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (right elbow) and wide receiver N’Keal Harry (hip) were both full participants.
