Wes Welker cleared to practice, Manning back from day off

NFL: Washington Redskins at Denver Broncos Reuters

The Broncos are practicing in some bitterly cold conditions today, but they’re doing  so with two of the guys they need the most.

Quarterback Peyton Manning was back after getting his planned day off Wednesday, and wide receiver Wes Welker was back after missing Wednesday because of his concussion, according to Mike Klis of the Denver Post.

Welker will still have to be cleared by an independent neurologist before he can play, but being cleared for practice is obviously a step in the right direction.

Now, all they have to do is worry about freezing before they get to Foxboro Sunday night, where it will doubtless be balmy.

    Wes would need to lose a limb to miss this game. He’s playing.

    Wes was cleared to play. There was no sign of abnormal brain activity. Of course, there was no sign of normal brain activity either, but the neurologists chose to overlook that.

    Why would it be balmy in Foxboro in late November? Might not be as frosty as the rockies, but it certainly won’t be like a balmy summer day…

    Broncos will be ready for the cold weather. 14 degrees at practice, windchill is 0. No indoor practice facility in Denver.

    The title of this story should have been ‘Welker cleared to get blamed for tom brady’s interception on Monday night’.

    Patriots defense is lousy. Expect big numbers from Manning and company.

    Sunday outlook in Boston: Daytime temps. will be in the low 20′s with wind chill.

    This could easily be Dallas/Denver part 2.

    90+ points
    900+ yards

    It’s a different kind of cold. It’s dry in the Rockies. It’s wet in NE. Bone chilling…..

    Welker has taken too many shots to the head. That’s why he went lights out on what looked like an indirect hit Sunday night. If he gets cleared to play the NFL policy on concussions is as we all thought, a joke.

    For the first time in years I’m actually rooting for bad weather to benefit the Pats. Feels like 2003 all over again.

    Maybe the scariest thing for the league is the Patriots back in the underdog role. They were always a better underdog than offense-heavy favorite.

    Why would you want bad weather to benifit the pats? Tom Brady is the best QB of all time he’ll only suffer if the weather is bad? OHHHHH I GET IT…YOU WANT TO TAKE THE GAME OUT OF HIS HANDS!!! I don’t blame you, we saw what happened when it was left up to Tom Terrible last sundee didn’t we?

  14. edgerules says: Nov 21, 2013 3:56 PM

    I expect a lower scoring game. Peeps forget that Peyton’s stats tend to be lower in the cold weather. Besides, as for Welker, that’s pretty quick to be back, but good for him.

  15. ampats says: Nov 21, 2013 4:10 PM

    Still love the uneducated Patriot haters spilling their venom on every Pats post.

    Wonder what kind of sundee Brady benifit(ed) from after the game?

  16. patsfan2001 says: Nov 21, 2013 4:15 PM

    Game time temp in Foxboro will be under 20, with a little wind added for good measure. Low scoring game

  17. ilovefoolsball says: Nov 21, 2013 4:24 PM

    This does not help me decide if I should start Welker or not.

    Pros: going up against his old team, he will be geared up to have a big day

    Cons: coming off of a concussion can’t be good, and what I’ve learned about concussions is that it’s very easy to have another concussion so soon after you’ve just suffered one.

    What should I do?

  18. jasonculhane says: Nov 21, 2013 4:58 PM

    I think he pulled himself after being a bit whoozy because he didn’t want to miss this game

  19. RE LEE says: Nov 21, 2013 11:48 PM

    Wes ought to be good. He’s Jedi trained.
