Wes Welker: "Doing everything possible to heal the right way"

New England Patriots WR Wes Welker had an interview with The Oklahoman, where he talked about his progress this off-season. Welker's season ended abruptly with a knee injury against the the Houston Texans, where he tore his ACL and MCL in his left knee. He is often regarded as the best slot receiver in the NFL and one of the best overall receivers in the game. He has spent his time rehabbing in order to get back with the team and on the field as soon as possible. However, he doesn't want to rush back into the game and re-injure the knee.

"Obviously, this isn’t something you can really just fight through," he said. "You’ve got to go in stages. You’ve got to make sure you’re doing everything possible to heal the right way and make sure you’re ready to go."

He works every day with his knee to increase his flexibility and improve his extension. Only three months after the surgery, he is already jogging again.

"I’m happy about where we are," he said. "Hopefully, we can just continue to have positive days and keep moving forward."

Welker doesn't have a time set for his return, nor does he plan to set a date any time soon. In a career full off adversity and beating the odds, Welker looks to beat another one and help the Patriots next season.

The article is a great read and worth a look.
