Welker Misses More Time with Concussion 12/20/13
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - As expected, Denver Broncos slot receiver Wes Welker was officially ruled out of this weekend's game at Houston.
The former Texas Tech star is also expected to be held out of the Broncos' regular-season finale at Oakland on December 29th as a precaution against a third head injury this month, which would end his season.
The Broncos (11-3) are hoping to gain home-field advantage in the playoffs and a first-round bye that would give Welker more than a month's rest.
He hasn't played since leaving the Broncos' Dec. 8 game against Tennessee shortly before halftime with his second concussion in a three-week span. He was cleared Thursday to resume light workouts.
Welker has a career-high 10 touchdown catches on 73 receptions for 778 yards in his first season in Denver.
