Nevertheless, the 32-year-old Welker will compete Sunday when Denver plays the Chargers in San Diego.
Welker, who signed a two-year contract worth $12 million to join the Broncos (7-1) on March 13, has been Peyton Manning’s favorite target this season.
Leading the league in touchdown receptions, Welker’s a primary reason Denver owns football’s most dynamic attack.
A four-time All-Pro who has topped the NFL in catches on three occasions, the 5-foot-9, 185 pound Welker is a fearless route runner with great speed and hands.
Welker once courageously returned from a torn MCL and ACL in his left knee within a span of nine months.
Hence, an achy joint won’t slow a man who is becoming royalty in the “Queen City of the West.”
After dissecting San Diego’s secondary this weekend, Wes Welker will help Denver leapfrog the Kansas City Chiefs (9-0) in the AFC West.by
