Wes Welker remains out at Broncos practice


The chances of wide receiver Wes Welker missing a second straight game for the Broncos because of a concussion appear to be good after Welker missed another practice on Wednesday.

Welker has not been cleared to return to work after suffering a concussion against the Titans in Week 14 and would still need to pass a series of tests between now and Sunday before he’d be given the green light to play against the Texans.

Welker has suffered a pair of concussions in a short period of time, which has led some to wonder if the Broncos might shut Welker down for the remainder of the regular season and focus on getting him healthy for the playoffs. The Broncos still have some work to do to clinch the AFC West and the first seed in the conference, but they may not need Welker to get that work done as the schedule brings them the Texans and Raiders in the next two weeks.

Joan Niesen of the Denver Post reports that the only other Broncos to miss practice were cornerback Kayvon Webster, who has a broken thumb, and defensive end Derek Wolfe, who has been out since suffering seizure-like symptoms late last month.

    This poor guy needs to step back. He really should be concerned about his post-football life. I’m sure he’s dying to get back on the field but I hope he waits a bit.

    Tough situation for him. Great player.

    Denver O clearly not the same without him as the HOME loss to SD indicated. He needs to be there, but not if it means creating health concerns for his post-football life.

    He was concussed during the Pats game, but somehow was cleared to play the next week. Now hes a mess. Its their own fault!

    It’s just a game. Nothing is worth your health and future. Be smart Wes you have your whole life ahead of you.

    Saving him for the playoffs I’m guessing

    He should rest. The Texans are after a QB with the first pick. They want to loose.
