Welker on contract: 'I expect to be back'

INDIANAPOLIS -- Speaking during Sunday's media availability at University Place on the campus of IUPUI, Patriots receiver Wes Welker didn't wish to discuss his future with the Patriots, only to say he expects to return to New England after the current season.

"I expect to be back," said Welker, who is making $2.15 million in this, the final year of his current contract. "I'm not too worried about that right now. I'm fully concentrated on this game and what we have to do. This is all stuff we can address at another point and it can be a story when the season's over, but right now we're just concentrating on this game and what we have to do to win this game. We win this game and all the other stuff takes care of itself."

Since joining the Patriots prior to the 2007 season, Welker has more catches (554) than any player in the NFL, totaling 80 more than the next closest receiver, Brandon Marshall. The Pats wideout led the NFL in...

Welker: SB win won't 'take care' of '07

INDIANAPOLIS -- Speaking at Sunday's media availability at University Place on the campus of IUPUI, Wes Welker was asked if a victory over the Giants in Super Bowl XLVI would "make up" for the Super Bowl loss four years ago.

"The only thing I'm focused on is winning this game," Welker said. "Does it take care of what happened? I don't think so, no, but at the same time I'm not worried about that. What happened happened and we've moved on. The only thing I'm worried about is this game and what we need to do to win this game."

Welker, who matched a Super Bowl record with 11 receptions in the loss to the Giants, was asked if Bill Belichick has spoken to the team about Super Bowl XLII, a 17-14 Giants win that spoiled New England's shot at a perfect 19-0 season.

"We haven't talked about it. This year is this year and we've had plenty of games this year to talk about. We've had plenty of those," Welker...

Belichick: Gronk is 'day-to-day'

INDIANAPOLIS -- Less than an hour after Rob Gronkowski deplaned the Patriots charter and walked onto the tarmac in Indianapolis wearing a dark black walking boot on his left foot, coach Bill Belichick said Sunday evening that the team considers the Pro Bowl tight end "day-to-day" and would not make any projections about his availability this week during practice. 

Gronkowski missed both practices last week as the team began preparation for the Giants in Super Bowl XLVI next Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadum. Gronkowski's father told a Buffalo TV station on Friday that his son suffered a high ankle sprain, adding that he believes Gronkowksi will be "fine" and ready to play in the biggest game of his career. Gronkowski was projected as "questionable" on Friday's injury report as mandated by the league. 

The Patriots will hold team meetings on Monday and take part in Super Bowl media day on Tuesday before resuming on-...

Allen returns, Rondo getting closer

Ray Allen is back in the starting lineup after missing three games and part of a fourth with a sprained ankle. Allen said before the Celtics played Cleveland at the Garden that he felt as good as he has since he injured his ankle last Sunday against the Wizards.

Rajon Rondo (wrist) is still out, but Celtics coach Doc Rivers said he was getting closer to a return and could be back as soon as Tuesday when the Celtics play at Cleveland. Keyon Dooling, may be out the longest of any of the injured Celtics. He suffered a hip pointer in his return from a knee injury on Thursday.

As for Allen, he said he wouldn't have to make too many adjustments in his return, even with the Celtics four-game winning streak.

"I'm not one of those players that when I come in you have to stop and fill me in or work me in," Allen said. "You get on the assembly line and you work with what's been going on. I just adapt with what we've got going."...
