Pats WR Julian Edelman, Jets WR Clyde Gates leave game with head injuries

New England wide receiver Julian Edelman has left the Patriots' game against the New York Jets with a head injury and his return is questionable.

Edelman was injured in the third quarter Thursday night on a helmet-to-helmet hit by LaRon Landry. Edelman returned a fumble 22 yards for a touchdown and caught a 56-yard pass for a score in the Patriots' 35-point second quarter before leaving with the injury.

Jets wide receiver Clyde Gates also left the game with a head injury and will not return. He was hurt after a 9-yard catch just before halftime on a hard hit by Kyle Arrington. Both players were shaken up, but walked gingerly off the field. Gates was taken immediately to the locker room.
