    ... according to Reiss's and Breer's Twitter accounts.

    I'm ambivalent on this one: on the one hand, it would be great to see Welker out there in live action if they plan on playing him Week 1; on the other, it might be an unnecessary injury risk.

    The rebuttal to the latter, of course, is that Welker got hurt on a non-contact play which easily could have happened in practice.

    I think with Welker I'll be nervous no matter what. If he's not out there playing, then I'll be thinking he's still too hurt to play. If he is out there playing, I'll be cringing every time I see him turn on a dime.

    It'll be interesting to see what he can do. But it's amazing that he is even in consideration to play when most people with the same injury will be just starting their rehab.

    I think he plays next week. Less than zero percent chance he goes out there tonight IMO.

    Looks like Welker is a go tonight, he is even catching punts in warm ups.

    How can one man be such a manly manly man? I do not get it. That's the guy I want next to me in a foxhole.

    If he keeps it up, this bromance will not remain platonic.

    This just in: Welker just surpassed Paul Bunyan and Chuck Norris and is now challenging Tedy Bruschi for Superman status.

    We have Chuck Norris'isms on the net, and Chug'isms and even Mesko'isms on this board. What the world really needs are Welker'isms. And they wouldn't even be 'isms. They would be statements of fact.

    When Welker is cold, he doesn't turn up the temperature, he turns up the sun.

    I'm convinced Welker is actually a cyborg from the planet Receivertron.

    I'm starting to think Edelman is one, too, except that he developed amnesia somewhere along the way.

    No one surpasses Chuck Norris. :D

    In all seriousness though, were the Patriots attempting to get Welker killed last night, or did they forget that last night's game was his first one back, since reconstructive surgery on his knee? How about easing the guy in, just incase his knee is still a little tender? Obviously they know better than I do, but I was a little surprised at the situations they put him in, so early in his time back.
