Broncos Injury Update: Wes Welker returns to practice

By on 9/02/2014 10:00:00 AM

After suffering a concussion on August 23 against the Houston Texans, Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker was cleared to travel for the team's preseason finale against the Dallas Cowboys and was seen warming up on the field prior to the game.

Welker continued his progress through the league's concussion protocol on Monday, as he took the field for practice. He has not been cleared for contact yet, but his return to any sort of on-field activity bodes well for his ability to suit up for Sunday night's season opener against the Indianapolis Colts.

Welker missed time toward the end of last season with two separate concussions, the second of which led to him missing the final three regular season games, and he has a history of head injuries dating back to his time with the New England Patriots. But all indications are he has no plans to retire after this latest concussion, and barring any significant setbacks he will play this season.

Welker's progress over the rest of the week will surely be monitored closely, and it remains a possibility he'll miss Week 1 as the Broncos take a cautious approach with one of their top offensive weapons.
