Welker Has Still Not Had Surgery on His Injured Knee

Sporting News reports that Wes Welker has yet to have his surgery on his injured left knee:

Twenty-three days after Wes Welker’s injured his left knee at Houston’s Reliant Stadium, the Patriots receiver still has not had surgery, according to SN correspondent and Boston Herald reporter Ian R. Rapoport.

A source tells the newspaper that Welker purposely is waiting for the procedure to be performed, allowing time for his MCL to heal. Welker also tore his ACL on Jan. 3 in the regular-season loss to the Texans. It is not yet clear where or when he’ll have the procedure done.

The Patriots placed Welker on injured reserve January 6th. Two weeks ago, Welker told WWLS Radio in Oklahoma City, “We’re just taking our time right now to wait on (the MCL) to heal and make sure that we exhaust all the options.”
