Julian Edelman broke his foot Sunday, according to multiple reports, and it’s unclear if and when he’ll be back.

The injury appeared to occur at the end of the first quarter during Sunday’s 27-26 win over the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium.

After converting a third down with a 12-yard reception on the final play of the first quarter, Edelman limped off the field. Patriots trainers could be seen examining Edelman’s left foot on the sideline before he headed to the locker room. After initially announcing that his return was questionable during the second quarter, the Patriots downgraded his status early in the third quarter.
