FOXBORO — Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker made another appearance at organized team activities on Monday, and said he feels “good” as he continues to work his way back after a left knee injury he suffered in the regular-season finale against the Texans in Houston.
“[I’m] just trying to work hard and day to day, just get a little better,” he said. “That’s been my plan from the get-go, and just sticking to that plan. ... I’m just taking it day-to-day and working hard and coming back as quickly as I can and just trying to get better on a daily basis.”
As he did at last week’s OTA session, Welker took part in the first few sessions, which included stretching and a series of pass-catching drills. After roughly 30 minutes, he retreated to the Dana-Farber Field House for the rest of the practice.
Welker, who said he was not restricted in any way but was again wearing a sizable brace on the injured knee, was asked about his confidence level.
“I always feel confident, so I wouldn’t be out there if I didn’t feel confident,” he said. “I know the coaches and teammates have confidence in me just like I do them, and we’re just going to move along as quickly as we can.
“I want to get back as early as possible. Whenever that is, is when it is. My main goal is just working hard and getting back with my teammates as early as possible.”
