Found October 29, 2012 on NFL Injury Report:
New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker injured his left ankle during the team’s victory over the St. Louis Rams yesterday. He told reporters, including Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com, that he thought the ankle injury was nothing to be overly concerned about. “Yeah, I think so,” he answered. “We’ll see. We’ll evaluate it in the morning. It’s hard to tell right after it happens. We’ll evaluate it as the week goes on.” Welker was injured during the fourth quarter of yesterday’s game after being tackled. He came up limping and removed himself from the game. The veteran wide out will be evaluated by the team this week and there will certainly be more news to come. Welker is the Patriots’ leading receiver as he’s now caught 60 passes for 736 yards and two touchdowns on the season.
