Patriots WR Welker “doing well,” but won’t be ready for the start of season

Wes Welker is recovering well from his offseason surgery from the injury that took place during the final regular season game against the Texans. It’s been three weeks since the key WR had knee surgery to repair a torn left anterior cruciate ligament. With that though, the Boston Herald reports today that he won’t be ready for the start of the 2010 season:

While the early news is extremely encouraging with Welker, counting on him to make it back for the start of the 2010 season remains an unrealistic proposition.

So with that, look for the Pats to take a long look at the wide out spot this weekend at the combine, as well as in the upcoming 2010 NFL Draft. The team made a minor move on Tuesday, bringing in 35, soon to be 36-year-old wide out David Patten. The bottom line though is this team needs to add a WR one way or another to add depth for the 10 season.
