FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - The New England Patriots are dealing with another injury.
Elusive punt returner Julian Edelman went on injured reserve on Tuesday with a foot injury. The Patriots already have played the last several games without tight end Rob Gronkowski, defensive end Chandler Jones and left guard Logan Mankins, all key players.
Gronkowski has a broken forearm, Jones has a sprained ankle and Mankins has dealt with hip, calf and ankle problems this season.
But as the injuries piled up, so have the wins. The Patriots' sixth straight victory last Sunday, 23-16 over the Miami Dolphins, clinched first place in the AFC East and gave them a 9-3 record. That streak will be on the line on Monday night when they're home against the Houston Texans (11-1).
