Julian Edelman will play versus Chiefs, per report

One of the biggest mysteries of the NFL's postseason is whether we see the unbeatable New England Patriots of September and October or the MAS*H unit they were forced to trot out in December.

The signs from Monday's practice suggest the Kansas City Chiefs will square off against the healthiest Patriots team since No. 1 receiver Julian Edelmanwent down with a broken foot in mid-November.

Edelman, quarterback Tom Brady (ankle sprain) and linebacker Dont'a Hightower (MCL sprain) were all accounted for at Monday's practice, and will play Saturday versus the Chiefs, reports Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald.

Pass rusher Chandler Jones (toe) and left tackle Sebastian Vollmer (ankle sprain) were also present Monday and could play this weekend, per Howe.

Danny Amendola appears to be out of the woods with his late-December knee injury.

With his top-two receivers joining a healthy Rob Gronkowski, Brady will have a full arsenal at his disposal for the first time since Week 10 -- when the Patriots were still undefeated.

The big question is going to be whether the patchwork offensive line can protect him after one of the worst blocking performances we've seen all season in the Week 17 loss at Miami.
