New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts. Welker returned to the practice field on Friday after missing the previous two practices with an ankle injury.
Welker has had an ankle injury for a while, which he aggravated against the Buffalo Bills, but the fact that Welker was able to practice on Friday is a good sign that he should play on Sunday.
Fantasy Impact: Two missed practices is cause for concern, but Welker was out there on Friday, so it is likely the Patriots were just giving him extra rest. Welker has not missed a game this season and has 66 receptions for 810 yards and two touchdowns.
It is okay assume Welker will start after he practiced on Friday, but the safest course of action is to check back before game time. A 4:25 p.m. ET start time makes things slightly more risky.
