Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker, who did not appear in Thursday's exhibition opener vs. the Eagles and has not been on the field during recent full-pad workouts, appeared for this morning's walkthrough and took snaps with the first-team offense.
Welker looked good hauling in passes from Brady as the team worked heavily on its two-minute offense early in the session.
"I feel good; glad to be out there, be around my teammates and go through the walkthrough," said Welker.
So will he play Thursday night in New England's second exhibition game against the Cincinnati Bengals at Gillette Stadium?
"I don't know, that's up to Coach Belichick," said Welker. 'You'll have to ask him."
So the media put the question to Belichick. And, as you probably guessed, he wasn't ready to tip his hand, not even for a preseason game.
