Today, now the former Chief, current Texan Bernard Pollard, is near another big Patriots injury.
As he was going down, he was lightly tackled by Pollard and injured his knee. He was grabbing his knee as he went down so it wasn't clear if he hurt it before he was hit (that's what it looks like).
Welker was pretty emotional on the sidelines which makes you think it's a pretty serious injury, like Brady's was last year.
Either way, a strange coincidence.
