Reports: Wes Welker suffers concussion, status for Patriots game in doubt
|11.18.13 at 1:03 am ET|
Wes Welker reportedly sustained a concussion in Sunday’s Broncos game. The former Patriots receiver, in his first season with Denver, took a serious hit going over the middle on a fourth-quarter pass play against the Chiefs, and left the game later in the second half as the team announced he was being evaluated for a concussion.
However, reports surfaced after the game that he did indeed suffer from a concussion, which would certainly throw his availability for next Sunday’s Patriots-Broncos game in Foxboro in doubt — going forward, Welker won’t be able to practice or play without separate clearances from an independent neurologist.
In his first season with the Broncos after six seasons with New England, Welker has 61 catches for 648 yards and nine touchdowns.
