Welker was injured after*a making a reception early in the first quarter on a play which didn’t involve much contact, but he appeared to jam it into the turf after turning up field.* The bad news [...]

    That is exactly what you don't want to see. Charger fan, NE fan, no one. Hopefully it isn't as serious as it looks.

    As a Jets fan, let me say that I take no pleasure in seeing anyone injured and I don't think anyone wants to win like that. But I don't mind if you sit anyone. ;)

    No doubt about it he's done. Edleman is going to have to rise up. I mean it's not like we really expected the Patriots to do much in the post season anyhow. I figured to see a divisional round exit.

    Even a Welker-less Pats team would beat the Jets at home in the playoffs

    Maybe not having Welker to lean on will FORCE Brady to spread the ball around more, and play more like he did earlier in the decade? I don't know.

    It blows, but guess what............ It happened. No cheap shot, just a fluke play. The only only positive that we can take is that the team will rally around it.

    It's such bad news, but I'm not going to give up hope. Until someone from the Pats says Welker is out for the season, I'll hold out irrational hope. On the other hand, if he is out, then I think this could be Edelman's year. An untested Tom Brady came through for us in 2002; maybe we'll see the same from Edelman.

    The sad irony in all of this is that Pollard was the guy in coverage making the hit....remember him from last year folks? Now the cut looked to be what did it to welker, it's just odd that Pollard was the guy again!

    Losing Welker is possibly devastating, but as a fan I'd prefer to see my team playing a full season, especially when all three units still need work. My irrational hope is that it's somehow a hyper-extension as opposed to ACL but it certainly looked like an ACL to me. :mad:

    hopefully it's not a brady injury as far as full reconstruction.. Welker is overall young.

    bad news indeed.....

    at least there is a similar player (edelman) on the roster to at least be able to run similar schemes

    stars are born under adverse opportunities like this

    If there's a silver lining in all this, it looks like the TE's have been much more involved in the passing game since Welker went down, which may not be all bad.

    Note to Ian: why not rename this thread the "Official Welker Update Thread?" That way we'll have a place to come as information becomes available.

    Just spoke to my brother (Head Ath. trainer at state college). He said after looking at it a few times (tivo'd) that it looks like ACL, potentially MCL, and meniscus.
    This sucks! I sure hope he is wrong.:(

    I dvr'd the play............Welker's knee gave out before the hit.It looked to me to be a sprain or a hyperextension.Just bad luck...........what a warrior this kid is.

    Definately a huge loss if he can't make it back. We still have a good set of targets in Moss/Edelman/Watson/Faulk and hopefully Aiken can step his game up too. Everyone will have to elevate their games somewhat to make up for this loss.

    I wouldn't rule the Patriots out yet. First, it may not be as serious as it looks. Second, if it is and Welker is done for the season, the Patriots beat the Chargers in the divisional round, and almost beat the Patriots in the AFCCG, in '07 with Caldwell, Gaffney and Brown at wide receiver. Moss, with anyone else, is at least as good as those guys. We'll see.

    Here's hoping it's just a bad sprain. At least Edelman's stepped up

    Except Welker hurt it making the cut.

    Now the hit to Hoyer where Pollard launched himself? That was dirtbag.

    If its a bad sprian, still absolutely no chance we see him back until the SB at the earliest. Any injury to the knee is serious and he could brely walk on it. ****!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    spygate,SB loss, Brady hurt, Welker hurt....why do the football gods hate us?
