Herald Tribune: Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker did not
return Sunday after being leveled late in the third quarter
by Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Clark. The Patriots did
not announce the nature or severity of his injury. With
Pittsburgh leading 23-10 during their 33-10 win, Matt Cassel's pass to Welker went incomplete and the receiver
was knocked down by Clark, who was penalized 15 yards for
unnecessary roughness. New England ended up losing a fumble
on that series. "It was not like I was trying to be cheap,"
Clark said. "Anybody that comes across (the middle), it is
my job to tackle them. The ball got tipped, but (the
official) said I should not have left my feet. ... I talked
to Kevin Faulk and apologized." Faulk said, "If Wes Welker
stays down, then it must have been a pretty hard hit."
