Pats' Edelman, Blount out; Jets' Wilkerson active
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman and running back LeGarrette Blount will not play against the New York Jets on Sunday because of injuries.
Edelman, who has 92 catches, has a concussion that limited him in practice. He has also been playing through a thigh injury. Blount has a shoulder injury and was also limited.
Patriots slot cornerback Kyle Arrington is also sidelined with a hamstring injury.
Jets defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson is active after missing three games with turf toe. Wide receiver Percy Harvin is also active after playing through a severely sprained ankle last week at Tennessee.
Safety Rontez Miles, promoted from the practice squad last week, is out after needing emergency leg surgery Thursday night after hurting his shin area in practice earlier in the day.
