Better take a rain check on the “amazing comeback” story of Wes Welker…at least for now. It was reported that the Patriots receiver, fresh off February ACL surgery, would practice on the first day of training camp. However, Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston is reporting that Bill Belichick has decided to put Welker on the PUP list. Welker could come off the list anytime, though.
In the meantime, Julian Edelman, who may or may not be a Welker clone (experts are still investigating), will handle the underneath receiving chores.
