After a short-week loss to the Chargers, the Broncos were still a bit short-handed when they returned to work Monday.
Welker missed last week’s loss after suffering his second concussion in a month. Whether he’s cleared to work Wednesday or later in the week will carry far more weight.
Not that they don’t take every opponent seriously, but the Broncos do have a reasonably easy time of it down the stretch, finishing with the Raiders after this week’s date with the Texans. By winning both, they can secure the top seed in the AFC playoffs and home field advantage.
