FOXBOROUGH – Julian Edelman, who has not participated in a full practice since Aug. 2, continued to increase his workload in Tuesday’s session. Edelman started the practice alongside his teammates, then worked out with trainers on an alternate field.

The wide receiver’s participation in the upcoming practices with the Saints in West Virginia is in question. Tuesday’s practice was light (helmets, no pads, very little contact) leading up to the bruising both teams will endure in White Sulphur Springs. Even if Edelman is not cleared to practice against the Saints, he could travel with the team.
