Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker returned to practice with the team as he recovers from a concussion sustained in a preseason game against the Houston Texans.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker has returned to practice after sustaining a concussion in preseason, which was his third in the last 10 months.
The Broncos are remaining cautious with Welker before they are ready to officially clear him for playing time. The wide receiver had taken a hit from Houston Texans safety D.J. Swearinger.
This visibly angered quarterback Peyton Manning, who went on to taunt the safety after throwing a touchdown pass. Manning was fined $8,268 for his actions.
Welker is entering his second season with the Broncos after spending the majority of it with the New England Patriots, and he is coming off a season with a career-high 10 touchdowns.
The Broncos appear to be catching a break with Welker’s injury since he is back at practice already. He has a realistic goal to try to return for the Broncos’ season opener against the Indianapolis Colts.
Welker will look to re-emerge as a key weapon for Manning after returning to full health.
