New England Patriots wide receiver facing four week suspension for PED use
Julian Edelman could be out until Week 5 for Bill Belichick’s side having missed all of 2017 through injury.

NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS wide receiver Julian Edelman is facing a four-game suspension for use of performance-enhancing drugs, ESPN has said.

The 32-year-old has reportedly violated the NFL’s PED’s policy, with the potential suspension meaning he will miss the Patriots’ opening four regular-season games against the Texans, Jaguars, Lions and Dolphins.

If enforced, the suspension will be yet another setback for Bill Belichick’s side ahead of the new campaign having already traded Brandin Cooks and lost Danny Amendola in free agency.

Edelman was absent for the entire 2017 season due to a torn ACL and could now be missing until Week 5 when the Patriots face the Indianapolis Colts on 4 October.
