According to CBSsportsline.com on Thursday, Denver Broncos’ wide receiver, Wes Welker is likely to be held out of Sunday’s game against the Texans. Now ESPN has reported on Friday that Welker could be out awhile longer. If he misses the final two games of the season, Welker is likely to miss over a month of game action. With that said, Welker should be well rested for the Super Bowl run.
Although Welker has participated in light workouts during practice, league and team sources say that he will be sidelined for the rest of the regular season. Currently, Denver is leading the way in the AFC and they are two wins away from earning bye. However, one loss can put Denver in a wild card game.
Depending on the outcome in the AFC West standings, Welker should be good to go in their first postseason game. Still, the situation looks troublesome for Wes Welker and the Broncos. As ESPN notes, he suffered two concussions in week 11 and week 14.
Whether Denver has home field advantage or road games, they’ll need Wes Welker to deliver in the playoffs. It’s a calculated risk to sit him out if he’s healthy, but if Welker really shouldn’t play, then this decision is an easy one to make.
