FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) The New England Patriots were dealt their biggest hurdle of the preseason when Julian Edelman was carted off the field last week with a season-ending knee injury.

Veteran receiver Danny Amendola said he expects Edelman to still be present among his teammates even if he can’t play.
