W. Welker had two catches for 20 yards in an impressive return to the field (AP). Posted by Josh Katzowitz

He didn’t officially start the game, and he didn’t make his way onto the field until the second play (well, officially, it was the first play, because the real first play was a penalty). But Patriots WR Wes Welker made his presence felt immediately.

He caught a six-yard pass, and then he made a nice catch on a pass thrown behind him for 14 yards and the first down. On the next play, Falcons DB Chris Owens blasted him on an incomplete screen attempt. But Welker got right up and was ready for the next play.

It’s just an awesome story. He had ACL surgery in February, and a little more than six months later, he was on the field and playing at a high level. Two catches, 20 yards, one good collision.

Amazing stuff from Welker.

And I was just about to post this when the Houston Chronicle’s John McClain Tweeted this. Just for some perspective: “I watched Texans TE Owen Daniels blow out a knee in the 8th game and he's not ready. I watched Wes Welker do the same in the 16th game.”
