It’s not official just yet, but Patriots wideout Wes Welker appears to have made it all the way back from surgery on his torn ACL and MCL..
According to multiple reporters on the scene, Welker led the Patriots on to the field Thursday night in uniform. He’s been catching punts and appears on track to play. Earlier in the night, Welker was seen warming up, running routes, and catching passes for backup quarterback Brian Hoyer. He did not appear to have his brace on, according to the Boston Globe.
We’ll update this post when we know if Welker is officially active for the game. (Which will probably happen just after we hit publish.)
UPDATE: Welker came in on the second play of the game, promptly caught two passes for 20 yards, then was decked on the following play. It’s safe to say they won’t ease him into action.
