With All-Pro slot receiver Wes Welker moving on to Denver, Tom Brady loses one of his most reliable and prolific weapons. Knowing the Patriots they will not take this hit lying down.

New England will be looking for a viable replacement. With many of the top free agent WRs off the market, will Bill Belichick and Bob Kraft turn their attention towards Giants' RFA WR Victor Cruz?

Probably not, but the Patriots are franchise that is not afraid to make bold strokes. They could make a run at the Rams' Danny Amendola, or trade up in the draft, but rumors have him going back to St. Louis.

As we know wide receiver Steve Smith has a knee injury and the word "microfracture"?surgery has been mentioned as a possibility.? I'm no orthopedic doctor but?we do know rehab?is a long, hard road to recovery, so I looked into the procedure for any one who really wants to know more about it.

?The timetable for a full recovery varies upon how extensive and elaborate the surgery is.? Several small holes are drilled into the knee to promote cartilage growth.? Blood and bone marrow seep out of these "fractures" creating blood clots that release cartilage-building cells.

Over the last few years more and more NFL players are electing to have microfracture surgery done, including current and former teammates of Steve Smith.?? NY Giants safety, Kenny Phillips?can be a great sources of information and motivation for Smith as well as former USC teammate, Reggie Bush who had the surgery done in 2009.
