The Broncos waited as long as they could before officially ruling wide receiver Wes Welker out for Thursday night’s game against the Chargers, but there was no way to avoid the obvious when they released their final injury report for the game on Wednesday.

Welker has been ruled out after his second concussion in the last two weeks and will miss a regular season game for the first time since 2010. Defensive end Derek Wolfe has also been ruled out for the third straight game after he suffered seizure-like symptoms before the team’s trip to Kansas City to face the Chiefs.

Cornerback Champ Bailey played in that game, one of only three he’s been able to play this season, but didn’t play against Tennessee last week because of his injured foot. If he can’t go, the Broncos will have Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Chris Harris and Tony Carter to throw at the Chargers receivers.

Keenan Allen will definitely be an object of their attention as he’s probable after last weekend’s shoulder injury. Eddie Royal is questionable with a toe injury, however, so the Chargers offense may not be at full strength once they make a final call on his availability.

    The Chargers could get smoked, or win big, and nobody will waste any time talking about them. Win or lose, it will be all about Manning.
