Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker has scheduled surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left knee and will undergo the operation Tuesday at Massachusetts General Hospital, according to an NFL source. Depending on his recovery, Welker could miss 6-12 months. He will likely not be ready to play by the start of next season, though it is possible, according to some doctors.
