Welker and the knee

By: Greg
We all know That Wes Welker’s knee is extremely important to the Pats upcoming season. His game changes the way the Patriots offense moves and shakes. Without Welker, Brady has no quick dump off options.
The waterbug and Brady have been playing catch in the offseason already, we don’t know whether that is just standing still like a father son type of catch or its running some routes (I doubt it).

Welker also sat down with an Oklahoma Paper and talked about the knee.
"I’m happy about where we are,” he said. "Hopefully, we can just continue to have positive days and keep moving forward…..everyday is looking a little brighter.”
However he does not know when the return date is

"It’s so early right now, it’s hard to put any sort of timetable on it,” he said. "My main deal is just working hard and putting myself in the best position possible to be ready whenever I’m ready. No telling when that’s going to be or how long it’s going to take, but all I can do is just work hard.”
Welker also says that people doubting him are his motivation to get back.

"Obviously, this isn’t something you can really just fight through,” he said. "You’ve got to go in stages. You’ve got to make sure you’re doing everything possible to heal the right way and make sure you’re ready to go

Lets all hope Welkers progress goes well. He is the key to the Pats offense, he opens things up and is the waterbug that gets first down after first down.
