After three short days spent working along the outskirts of Patriots practice, New England talisman Wes Welker can finally join his teammates in preparing for the 2010 NFL season.
Nick Caserio, Director of Player Personnel for the Patriots, greeted the assembled media with great news, stating “He’s ready to go now. He’s deemed physically ready to go based on the tests and what our trainers have decided.”
Welker’s near miraculous healing from a torn ACL/MCL injury suffered only eight months ago has given Patriots players and fans hope for the daunting upcoming slate of games. In only 14 games, Welker led the NFL with 123 receptions.
The number #83 will be a sight for sore eyes for quarterback Tom Brady, who just lost his good friend David Patten to retirement yesterday. Welker joins a healthy Rand Moss and three youngsters that continue to turn heads: Julian Edelman, Brandon Tate, and Taylor Price. Veterans Sam Aiken and Torry Holt are also competing for spots.
