New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker (ankle) was limited in practice on Thursday but this is a common weekly occurrence for players like Welker, Aaron Hernandez and Brandon Lloyd this season after suffering any type of injury. Despite showing up on the injury report on a weekly basis, Welker has not missed a game this season.
Welker has 92 catches for 1,064 yards and four touchdowns. He is coming off of a 12-catch game against the Miami Dolphins, his 17th career 10+ catch performance, tying him with Jerry Rice for the most of all-time. The Patriots take on the Houston Texans in a battle of first place teams.
Fantasy Take: The fantasy news is no different than usual, that Welker is great and is a must-start, even against a tough Houston defense.
