Jets | Ellis Lankster has tough task in Week 12

Thu, 22 Nov 2012 05:33:10 -0800

New York Jets CB Ellis Lankster has been assigned the task of covering New England Patriots WR Wes Welker in Week 12. Welker will likely be even busier, with TE Rob Gronkowski (forearm) out. Lankster said the key to guarding him is watching his hips. "He's a big troublemaker," Lankster said of Welker. "You have to watch him the whole play because Welker runs a lot of pivot routes. And then Wes Welker and Tom Brady's connection is so good, wherever Wes goes, Tom Brady can throw it straight to him."
