Patriots Training Camp: Welker Takes Part In Practice, Not Yet 100%

Wes Welker, who was removed from the active/PUP list on Sunday, just eight months after an ACL injury, took part in the team's afternoon practice, though his participation was limited.

- Wes Welker took part in some team drills this practice. Welker took part in some skeleton drills, but seemed to avoid contact. Once contact drills began, Welker moved to the side of the field and worked with the training staff again.

Before the second session, Welker spent some time answering questions from the media, where he said, "It doesn't feel like I ever left [the field]," but was also quick to remind that he's not all the way back just yet.

Q: Do you feel 100 percent?

WW: No. We're not there yet, but every day we get a little bit closer. Slowly but surely we are making progress.

Q: Did you ever think in your wildest dreams that you'd be back out there this early after the injury occurred?

WW: I don't know. I just wanted to take it each day, a day at a time and sit there and work at it and try and get better each day.
