Texans safety Bernard Pollard told SI's Peter King that when Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker went down with a left knee injury in Sunday's New England-Houston game, he heard Welker scream the same way Tom Brady did when the quarterback suffered a knee injury in September 2008.
The former Kansas City defensive back was the player who hit Brady in 2008, causing the season-ending knee injury. On Sunday, he was the player closest to Welker when Welker's knee buckled awkwardly, causing the receiver to fall to the turf.
"I heard Wes yell out, the same way I heard Tom yell out,'' Pollard told King. "It was the same yell. It was terrible. He went down right in front of me. I saw his knee buckle, then I fell on him, and when he went down, I said, 'Just my luck.'"
Welker reportedly tore the MCL and ACL in his left knee.
