Fantasy owners and Patriots fans were given a scare on Wednesday when it was reported that Julian Edelman was limited in practice due to a knee injury.

Fortunately, it doesn't seem to be an issue. Mark Daniels of the Providence Journal says he was told "there is no need to worry about Julian Edelman's knee." Edelman was able to finish practice despite being limited Wednesday, which is a good sign for his status for Sunday.

He's been the team's best wide receiver this season, catching 52 passes for 584 yards and six touchdowns. Additionally, he's been a third-down machine and is always a reliable target for Tom Brady regardless of his position on the field.
