New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft recently spent time with recovering WR Wes Welker and he liked what he saw.
"He's going to be back there, I have confidence in that," Kraft said Sunday at the Science of Sports Science Fair at Gillette Stadium. "I happened to see him a week and a half ago, and he looks great. We think everything should be fine there."
Welker had surgery to repair a torn ACL in his left knee earlier this year after suffering the injury in the Patriots' final regular season game of 2009. A timetable for his return is still unclear.
"It's hard to put a timetable on anything," Welker said over the weekend. "And plus, whenever you put a timetable on it, now people expect you. If you're not ready then, they're like, 'What's wrong?'
There should still probably be some question marks around his recovery, but the progress he's making so far seems like really good news. Welker, of course, can be a top-notch fantasy receiver when 100-percent, and that's especially true in PPR leagues. He should be a top 15-20 WR in most rankings.
