Here’s another example of why preseason sucks.
The New England Patriots were flying high coming into a new season, as they are projected to be in the Super Bowl once again. Then a Thursday night preseason game happened and changed everything.
Patriots WR Julian Edelman caught a pass from Tom Brady and tried to jump-cut past a defender, but he went down with a non-contact knee injury instead as he limped off the field.

Following the game, that sinking feeling everybody had come true, as Edelman is feared to have a torn ACL.
Patriots suspect Julian Edelman tore his ACL, but do not definitely know, per source. MRI on Sunday to determine full extent of injury.
