Wes Welker cleans up his knee ligament comment

Patriots receiver Wes Welker recently caused some confusion regarding his December 2009 knee injury, claiming that he injured only the ACL in his knee.  Widespread reports had indicated that Welker injured the ACL and the MCL.

According to Jeff Latzke of the Associated Press, Welker has clarified the situation, acknowledging that he tore both ligaments, but that only the ACL required surgery.

We just had to wait for it to heal,” Welker said of the MCL. “We didn’t have to do
surgery on it.”

And that’s a good thing.  Per published reports from late 2008, Pats quarterback Tom Brady developed a staph infection because his surgeon decided to work on an injured MCL while repairing the injured ACL.

    This wouldn’t even be a story if Goodell didn’t allow the Patsies to constantly cheat the system by withholding injury information that other teams are routinely required to submit
    I got to wonder how much longer he will allow the Patsies to play by their own rules, and hold everyone else to a more restrictive standard

    Yeah, Favre didn’t do it when he was with the Jets. Dumbass.

    There can’t be Patriots-related story without the idiotic rants of ItalianArmyGuy!
    get well Wes!

    More lies from the Pats! Give then 3 years when they are a 6 win team, all Pat fans will be Bears or Fin fans!

    ItalianArmyGuy – Get over it. You’re such a dick…you just come on here to bash the Pats CONSTANTLY. What a loser.
    Can’t wait til the Pats kick the collective asses of whatever team you root for.
    Whateva…

    The good news for the Patriots is that the Texans aren’t on their schedule this year. That means Bernard Pollard won’t be able to cause them any more injuries

    Infection is one of the inherent risks of surgery. Repairing an MCL while reconstructing an ACL does not significantly increase the risk of infection. Had the surgeon performed two separate procedures at different times, then you could make the claim that Brady was put at a higher risk for infection.

    ItalianArmyGuy= Aren’t you too busy holding Chris’s Johnson to be posting on EVERY SINGLE PATRIOTS THREAD?
    You said it, not me, that you want to hold Chris’s Johnson.
    So………………off you go =) He’s waiting.

    And there was much rejoicing.
    Oh, and ItalianArmyGuy, you’re a moron. I’m only 1/4 Italian, but I’m guessing you’re one of those faux-Italian, gold-chain wearing losers who can’t bake your own bread, make a calzone, or turn fresh tomatoes into the best marinara you’ve ever tasted. Ever made your own pasta? Didn’t thinks so. $20 says you’ve never even had baccala. Go rub some lotion on your chest, get a mani-pedi, and get your back waxed, poseur.

    Belicheat with holding injury news. Shocker.
    Next Welker will fess up to microphones under the shoulder pads.

  12. footballisfun says: May 16, 2010 12:24 AM

    Hey ItalianArmyGuy where were you on the Aaron Rodgers story tonight?
    Are you related to Matt Walsh? Someone who has beef with the Patriots because you couldn’t cut it. Maybe there was a girl you loved who wanted Wes Welker instead of you? Or… maybe you wanted Wes Welker and was devastated when he preferred women?

    ^^^^^^^^^Yes, he is a a total dick and Squeelers fan IIRC. Probably continues to hold Ben Rapistbergers jock too.

    I swear, the Patriots organization could develop a cure for cancer, and people would still accuse them of being cheaters..
    It’s not their fault your team sucks on a yearly basis.

  15. Jobin says: May 16, 2010 2:47 AM

    I’m not a Pats fan but you gotta root for a guy like Wes Welker, hope he gets well quick, he’s a lot of fun to watch and tough as nails, I have a ton of respect for the guy.

    Any chance that the few bombastic psycho-morons who are off their meds and use PFW to flaunt their knuckle-dragger biases might be ‘invited’ to sling their, er, swill elsewhere? This unmonitored drivel is beginning to ruin the site for most of us.

    The Patriots organization and players lie so much they can’t even keep track of them all.
    Sad, sad team.

  19. Italian.ArmyGuy says: May 16, 2010 7:27 AM

    I’m sorry everyone. I just never got over Bill turning my down, for you know, in the bathroom at Outback. It was a chance of a lifetime and I just couldn’t let out go by wihout atleast trying to make my fantasy come true.
    In Bill I Trust

  20. peskys_pole says: May 16, 2010 7:33 AM

    Whats more pathetic?
    ItalianArmyGuy posting on every Patriots thread (usually the first post) or………
    Nevermind, he’s just pathetic.

  21. .RebaTe says: May 16, 2010 9:17 AM

    attaboy IAG…
    It doesn’t even matter what the thread’s about or what your comments are, but as long as it keeps Patsies fans pissed off, it’s worth it IMO.
    LMAO
    fukkem…

  22. GRpatriot says: May 16, 2010 9:45 AM

    I think I’m going to change my user name to USArmy Guy? I got 10 yrs on active duty!
    It was in the 70’s to 80’s….back when we weren’t as popular. Kinda like the Pats of the 2000-2010! Good, but under-appreciated. ie
    2001 after 911, it was great that they won. It was symbolic.
    Tomase reporter Boston Herald(Owned by NY Times) and a loose cannon, self interested turd, Matt Walsh..Broke this story. I still don’t understand why anyone took this fool seriously?
    He’s a real class act human being. Booby trapped his bed with razor blades. I guess he didn’t want his room mate doing the nasty on his bed? I wouldn’t believe this idiot about anything! He was a gofer. Not a coach, or an assistant to an assistent coach. He was the equivalent of a ball boy. Now, he’s a Golf Instructor? Who lied on his resume.
    The NFL teams realize the games are won and lost by the players on the field. Teams try to get an adge, but how a video of Cheerleaders dancing helps you, is beyond me?
    Ready, set, cheaters, cheaters…..pumpkin eaters. Is this the best you guys can do? Belicheat, that’s all you got? Come on at least come up with something original. Does two fingers equal cover two? You haters are letting me down.

  23. bh103 says: May 16, 2010 11:00 AM

    What’s worse? Some of you responding to comments of others that are just trying to annoy you. You’re giving him the satisfaction of getting you upset.

  24. Iron Wolf says: May 16, 2010 11:17 AM

    Good to also see Matt Walsh chiming in with his one-trick brand of lukewarm, unimaginative and non-value adding drivel.
    Matt, you and ArmyGuy should at least post reviews of the massage parlors you are forced to go to, due to your lack of other options. That would at least be entertaining and would change things up a bit.

  25. ampats says: May 16, 2010 11:24 AM

    Fellow Pats fans,
    Italian Army Guy stands for Francos Italian Army which was a huge fan base in the 70’s in Pittsburgh.
    His issue is that his Steelers always get their asses whooped to the Pats in the playoffs so instead of accepting the Pats were/are a superior team and continues his incesant babble like the other idiots who has been watching the NFL for fifteen minutes about spygate which we all know is a bunch of BS that the Pats took the fall for because BB could give a crap of what Rodger Goodell decided was acceptable place to film which all teams do and that rat Mangini and Tannenbaum figured to stick it to NE since they couldn’t beat them on the field.

  26. CKL says: May 16, 2010 12:14 PM

    It’s far far more pathetic and mom’s basement dweller-ish to use every single PFT story to slam another team whether the post is about that team or not than it is to respond angrily on a post about YOUR team which the douchenozzle is slamming.
    To mvlonergan, NFL4Ever and PFL…bravo! :D

  27. Iron Wolf says: May 16, 2010 12:28 PM

    ampats:
    Nice to see someone who can talk about this rationally. Look, I’ve always said the same thing – that the Pats deserved to be punished if for nothing else arrogance. To pull that crap the week after the memo came out was just dumb. But anyone who cares to be honest knows that filming other teams was a widespread practice, which is why most of the outrage over this was not from the other players or coaches, but yahoos that have not spent one minute in an NFL locker room. St. Dungy took a minute from saving lepers to comment negatively on it, but otherwise it was just something for haters to latch on to.

  28. Belichick Is God says: May 16, 2010 12:33 PM

    go Wes! I hope that you get you ring this year and AMERICA’S TEAM returns to the top! Remember, we are all Patriots!

  29. patsfanlisa says: May 16, 2010 1:50 PM

    At least ItalianArmyGuy and Matt Walsh can stroke each other’s…..
    egos on a consistent basis.

  30. HellRelle24 says: May 17, 2010 9:47 AM

    hey ampats i figured id stop by one of these threads just to see if any jets fans went out of their way to make assanine comments like you do on their posts…and well look, they do not. my point exactly.

  31. J.C. says: May 21, 2010 3:33 PM

    What Italian Army?
    The one that allied itself with Nazi Germany? Those bitches?
    And for the record, Belichick has all you herbs, and your wives, under surveillance right now.
