MRI confirms torn knee ligaments for Pats’ Welker

MRI results confirmed that Patriots WR Wes Welker has torn anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in his left knee, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

Welker and the team expected that season-ending news following an initial evaluation of the injury Sunday. Welker, who suffered the injury during the first quarter of the Patriots’ 34-27 loss to the Texans while planting his leg to make a cut, is expected to make a full recovery for the start of next season.

The seventh-year pro was enjoying a career season with a league-leading 123 receptions, accounting for 33.2 percent of Tom Brady’s completions.
