Denver Broncos star Wes Welker will burn The Bolts in San Diego

The New England Patriots considered Welker to be expendable.

Still nursing a bummed ankle, Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker did not practice Wednesday.

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.

Even with standouts Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker as teammates, the disrespected New Englander has caught 50 passes for 555 yards and nine scores over eight brilliant games.

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.
