    I knew it the second they showed the hit in the middle of the Pat's game.

    Good thing he got paid at the start of the year.

    Still sucks for him though.

    That was gruesome. I thought at first he snapped his femur along with whatever else moved that much out of position.

    Yeah...he got wrecked. He looked all kinds of pissed on the sidelines. He knew he was done for.

    Hopefully he makes as close to a full recovery as possible.

    Welker and Brady seem to be good to go after their surgeries.

    It's got to be depressing when they sustain such an injury. First the doubt as to how good you may or may not be able to perform in the future, and that's only after months and months and months of arduous rehab.

    It's even worse considering it happened so late in the season. Now he has to spend his offseason getting surgery and dealing with the painful recovery and rehab.

    And I hear the healing process from these surgeries is wicked painful.

    I hope he makes a Welker-esque recovery and is ready to go at the start of next season but it's more likely that even if he plays next season he wont be "right" until the season after next, if at all.

    This is the injury that wrecked Jamal Anderson's career.
