Welcome back, Wes.
For Welker, arguably the greatest slot receiver in the history of the NFL, it was the first time he’d seen the field or worn a helmet since his latest concussion, August 23 against the Houston Texans.
Despite his somewhat diminutive 5’9″ frame, Welker is one tough guy. He’s not contemplating retirement even with the three concussions in less than a year because he loves to compete.
For Welker and the Broncos, this is a positive sign he may be able to play in Week One against the Indianapolis Colts.
That game kicks off at 6:30 p.m. MT and will be broadcast on NBC as their first Sunday Night Football game of the season.
