Broncos Injury Report: Wes Welker, Danny Trevathan

By on 9/20/2014 11:30:00 AM

Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker has had himself an exciting summer. He had a great day at the Kentucky Derby, perhaps a little too great, suffered a concussion and was suspended for four games by the league for violating its PED policy. This week, however, he has been reinstated by the league and is ready to roll Sunday in the Broncos Super Bowl rematch with the Seattle Seahawks.

Jeff Legwood of reports Welker, who served two games of his original four-game suspension, practiced fully Wednesday, Thursday and Friday as the team worked him more and more into team drills as the week wore on. Coach John Fox said Welker was probable for Sunday's Super Bowl rematch in Seattle. He is expected to play, but after recouping from his concussion suffered in the preseason and only practicing a few days, it wouldn't be a surprise if his snaps were limited some.

As for Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan, he practiced with the team Friday for the first time since suffering a broken leg more than five weeks ago according to Mike Klis of the The Denver Post. He is officially listed as questionable, but it makes sense for the Broncos to keep him out this weekend since they have an early bye in week four. That will allow Trevathan two full weeks of practice and assure he is fully healed.
