Patriots officially activate WR Edelman

The New England Patriots officially activated wide receiver Julian Edelman from the suspended list ahead of Thursday night’s game against the Indianapolis Colts.In a corresponding move, the team released running back Kenjon Barner.Edelman missed the first four games of the season due to a suspension for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs. He has not played since Super Bowl LI in February of 2017, having missed all of last season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament sustained in the preseason.Quarterback Tom Brady, who has completed 397 career passes to Edelman, said earlier this week he didn’t expect any rust from the wideout’s absence.”I think we’ve played so much football together,” Brady said. “I really have no doubt where he’s going to be at, what he’s capable of.”
