The 32-year-old Welker suffered the traumatic brain injury in the fourth quarter of Sunday night’s 27-17 win over the Kansas City Chiefs in Denver.
Welker, who signed a two-year contract worth $12 million to join the Broncos on March 13, is certainly determined to play in Week 12 against the Patriots in Foxborough.
However, it will be tough for the disrespected and underappreciated New Englander to get cleared for contact by the weekend.
Fortunately, sitting atop the AFC West and owning football’s most dynamic attack, there’s no reason for Welker to rush back onto the gridiron.
A four-time All-Pro who has topped the NFL in catches on three occasions, Welker is a fearless route runner with great speed and hands.
The 5-foot-9, 185 pound Welker once courageously resurfaced from a torn MCL and ACL in his left knee within a span of nine months.
New England considered Welker expendable and inked badass Danny Amendola to replace their all-time receptions leader.
Welker undoubtedly wants to embarrass Bill Belichick and New England’s secondary.
Nevertheless, already royalty in the “Queen City of the West,” Wes Welker should rest, recover and instead focus on returning December 1 at Kansas City.by
