Welker makes trip to Atlanta

According to the Providence Journal, New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker made the trip to Atlanta for Thursday’s preseason game against the Falcons.

Welker said on Monday that he was unsure if he would travel with the team to Atlanta, where they will hold joint practices with the Falcons on Tuesday and Wednesday and then play a preseason game Thursday. It’s still uncertain if Welker will play in the game.

Welker said after practice on Monday that his recovery remains on track.

“It’s still kind of the same, we’re making strides,” said Welker, who did not play in the team’s preseason opener against the Saints. “At the same time, there are good days and bad days. We’re just trying to work through them.”

Welker reaffirmed the team’s “take it slow” approach, so it would be surprising if he’s on the field Thursday against the Falcons in New England’s second preseason game.
