The Broncos will go at least another week without wide receiver Wes Welker.
Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reports that Welker will miss Sunday’s game at Houston. It will be the second consecutive game Welker has missed after suffering a concussion on December 8.
Denver’s offense missed Welker in last week’s loss to the Chargers, but the Broncos are wise to take it slowly with Welker’s recovery. The best course of action would seem to be to hold him out both this week and next, and hope to win both games without him. That would allow Welker to continue to recover through the wild card round of the playoffs, and he could then return for the divisional round on a month’s rest.
Welker, who has suffered two concussions this season, has 73 catches for 778 yards and 10 touchdowns.
