Will Mohamed Sanu play in Patriots-Browns? WR insists he's 'ready'

Will Mohamed Sanu play in Patriots-Browns? WR insists he's 'ready'

Mohamed Sanu officially is a member of the New England Patriots. Whether he suits up for the Patriots on Sunday remains to be seen, though.

The veteran wide receiver, who came to New England via trade from the Atlanta Falcons on Tuesday, told ESPN's Josina Anderson he's unsure if he'll play against the Cleveland Browns but will be "ready" if his number is called.

Sanu has his work cut out for him on a short week, as he'll have just three days of practice before Sunday's game. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady also admitted Wednesday morning it may take some time for the 30-year-old to learn a new playbook and develop trust with his quarterback.

Sanu contributing Sunday isn't out of the realm of possibility, though. Antonio Brown signed with the Patriots on Sept. 7 and played against the Miami Dolphins eight days later, recording four catches for 56 yards and a touchdown.

While Sanu is on a tighter timeline, he still may be able to learn a few basic pass concepts and at least see the field.

Sanu is expected to participate in his first Patriots practice Wednesday, so we'll find out soon enough how he fits in.

Watch Julian Edelman throw TD pass to Phillip Dorsett on Patriots' trick play

Watch Julian Edelman throw TD pass to Phillip Dorsett on Patriots' trick play

New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman showed off his old quarterback skills to score a much-needed touchdown early in the third quarter of Sunday's Week 11 game versus the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Patriots opened the second half with the ball and moved down the field with ease against the Eagles defense. New England entered the red zone for the fourth time in the game and scored their first TD thanks to an Edelman pass to fellow wide receiver Phillip Dorsett.

Brady took the snap on 3rd-and-11, threw to Edelman, who found a wide open Dorsett for a 15-yard score. The veteran wideout took a huge hit in the end zone but held onto the ball.

Take a look at the trick play in the video below:

It was Edelman's first touchdown pass since the 2014 AFC Divisional Round win over the Baltimore Ravens. Edelman, as you might already know, was a quarterback in college at Kent State. His NFL passing stats, as ESPN's Mike Reiss pointed out, are pretty good.
