Roundup: Notable injuries from Saturday's NFL games

Julian Edelman was active for Week 16's key showdown against the Bills -- and he made sure his impact was felt.

The Patriots wide receiver has been dealing with knee and shoulder injuries but got the start, as expected. He briefly exited Saturday's game in the third quarter following a collision with a Buffalo defender. Edelman was called for offensive pass interference on the play, nullifying a New England touchdown. After a visit to the medical tent, he headed to the Pats locker room before returning in the fourth quarter.

Tom Brady quickly found Edelman upon his return for a 30-yard catch and run to help set up the go-head touchdown. Edelman also caught the successful two-point try and finished the game with five receptions for 72 yards.

In other Patriots injury news, cornerback Jason McCourty aggravated his groin injury and did not return.

Offensive tackle Marcus Cannon suffered an ankle injury and did not return.
