New England Patriots

Wednesday: Placed WR Wes Welker on IR, signed LB Thomas Williams, signed WR Nick Moore to practice squad, signed WR Robert Ortiz to practice squad, placed WR Darnell Jenkins on practice squad injured list.

Comments: Obviously, losing Welker is a major blow to their offense. However, rookie WR Julian Edelman, who will replace him, is quite talented and can do similar things on the field as Welker. So the loss of Welker may not be as bad as first thought.


New Orleans Saints


Tuesday: Placed DE Charles Grant on IR, signed DE Paul Spicer.
