Welker: 'I plan on coming back'

Injured Patriots receiver Wes Welker wrote on his web site Wednesday afternoon that he plans on "coming back the player I was and much more."

Welker, who suffered a left knee injury in the regular-season finale (he reportedly tore the ACL and MCL in his knee against the Texans) was placed on season-ending injured reserve Wednesday afternoon by the Patriots. In an open letter — his first public comments since the injury — he wrote, "I plan on coming back the player I was and much more. This is not the first time that I have faced adversity in my career, and it won't be the last."

Sox name new scouting director

The Red Sox will name Amiel Sawdaye the new director of amateur scouting later today, promoting him from the position of assistant director of amateur scouting, a capacity in which he served next to former director of amateur scouting Jason McLeod for the past five seasons.

 

When McLeod left Boston to become Assistant GM of the Padres last month, the Sox made clear that they wanted to find an internal replacement. Sawdaye, who helped McLeod to administer the draft during a period of tremendous success, was a natural candidate. National cross-checker David Finley was also considered for the position.
