Less than a week after missing the second half of last Sunday afternoon’s game against the Jets at Gillett Stadium due to what was announced as a chest injury, Patriots wide receiving Julian Edelman is reportedly traveling with his teammates to Buffalo this weekend.

Despite being limited it practice all week and listed as questionable for Sunday’s game at New Era Field, NFL Network reports that Edelman is expected to play against the Bills.

Julian Edelman is making the trip to Buffalo. Expectation is he plays. #Patriots

NFL Network previously reported that Edelman had X-rays on his ribs after the Jets game that came back negative.

Even if he gets on the field in Buffalo – his pregame warmup workouts will be worth watching late Sunday morning -- it will be interesting to see if Edelman deals with any limitations due to the injury or if it’s simply a pain tolerance issue.
