Analysis: Talib hurt his knee on the play early in the second quarter and missed the rest of the game. Denver beat New England 26-16 on Sunday to advance to the Super Bowl. Belichick calls the play one of the worst he's seen and says Welker made no attempt to get open. It's likely Belichick is jealous of the former Patriots receiver.
|Jan. 11 2:04 PM PT3:04 PM MT4:04 PM CT5:04 PM ET22:04 GMT6:04 AM 北京时间3:04 PM MST5:04 PM EST4:04 PM CT2:04 UAE (+1)17:04 ET20:04 - Welker says he has no apprehensions about concussions or rust as he returns to the Denver Broncos' lineup Sunday for the first time in more than a month.
Analysis: It's the longest the 10-year pro has ever been sidelined. Welker missed the Broncos' last 3 1/2 games after sustaining his second concussion in a four-week span just before halftime in a game against Tennessee on Dec. 8. The Broncos sorely missed him four days later in a 27-20 loss to San Diego, when they were just 2 for 9 on third down and suffered their only home loss of the season. Denver (13-3) hosts the Chargers (10-7) Sunday in the AFC Divisional round.
|Dec. 31 9:53 PM PT10:53 PM MT11:53 PM CT12:53 AM ET5:53 GMT1:53 PM 北京时间10:53 PM MST12:53 AM EST11:53 PM CT9:53 UAE0:53 ET3:53 - Peyton Manning will have all of his wide receivers available for the first time in a month when the Denver Broncos begin their playoff run Jan. 12 in the AFC divisional round. Coach John Fox said Monday that slot receiver Wes Welker has recovered from his second concussion that kept him out of the Broncos' final three games, saying, "He has been cleared to play."
Analysis: Welker set a career high with 10 touchdown catches in his first season in Denver after six years in New England. He caught 73 passes for 778 yards. Welker was concussed just before halftime in the Broncos' win over Tennessee on Dec. 8. He also suffered a concussion against Kansas City on Nov. 17 but didn't miss any games. He returned to practice on a limited basis last week and began working on his timing with Manning.
|Dec. 20 12:25 PM PT1:25 PM MT2:25 PM CT3:25 PM ET20:25 GMT4:25 AM 北京时间1:25 PM MST3:25 PM EST2:25 PM CT0:25 UAE (+1)15:25 ET18:25 - Wes Welker returned to the Denver Broncos practice field on Christmas Day for the first time since suffering his second concussion on Dec. 12.
Analysis: He was allowed to participate on a limited basis according to the league's concussion protocol.
|Dec. 11 2:39 PM PT3:39 PM MT4:39 PM CT5:39 PM ET22:39 GMT6:39 AM 北京时间3:39 PM MST5:39 PM EST4:39 PM CT2:39 UAE (+1)17:39 ET20:39 - Welker won't play Thursday night against San Diego as he recovers from his second concussion in less than a month.
Analysis: Broncos coach John Fox officially ruled him out Wednesday. The NFL's protocol for concussed players would have allowed Welker only to participate in light practice Thursday and only if he had passed baseline cognitive tests earlier in the week. For competitive purposes, Fox had been coy about Welker's status during the week, other than to say the receiver's health was the team's top priority.
|Dec. 8 2:43 PM PT3:43 PM MT4:43 PM CT5:43 PM ET22:43 GMT6:43 AM 北京时间3:43 PM MST5:43 PM EST4:43 PM CT2:43 UAE (+1)17:43 ET20:43 - Broncos receiver Wes Welker left Sunday's game against Tennessee before halftime with a concussion. Welker went low to try to make a catch late in the second quarter and Titans safety Bernard Pollard hit him in the helmet as he went down to break up the pass.
Analysis: He walked off the field under his own power but did not come back after halftime. It is his second concussion in four weeks. He left the Nov. 17 game against Kansas City but played the next week.
|Nov. 24 3:59 PM PT4:59 PM MT5:59 PM CT6:59 PM ET23:59 GMT7:59 AM 北京时间4:59 PM MST6:59 PM EST5:59 PM CT3:59 UAE (+1)18:59 ET21:59 - Welker is active for the Denver Broncos against his former team one week after suffering a concussion.
Analysis: Welker, the Broncos' top receiver going into the game against the New England Patriots, was in uniform Sunday night two days after returning to practice on a full-time basis.
|Nov. 21 2:35 PM PT3:35 PM MT4:35 PM CT5:35 PM ET22:35 GMT6:35 AM 北京时间3:35 PM MST5:35 PM EST4:35 PM CT2:35 UAE (+1)17:35 ET20:35 - Five days after leaving a game with a concussion, Welker was cleared for full practice Friday and listed as probable for Denver's game against New England.
Analysis: Welker has passed NFL-mandated tests that have allowed him to gradually work his way back into practice with the Broncos. He was out Wednesday, limited Thursday and full Friday.
|Sep. 30 1:16 PM PT2:16 PM MT3:16 PM CT4:16 PM ET20:16 GMT4:16 AM 北京时间1:16 PM MST3:16 PM EST3:16 PM CT0:16 UAE (+1)16:16 ET19:16 - Welker increased his league-leading touchdown total to six with two more scores in a 52-20 win over Philadelphia on Sunday.
Analysis: Welker had seven catches for 76 yards in the victory. He has 14 receptions for 160 yards and three scores in his last two games.
|Sep. 22 7:17 AM PT8:17 AM MT9:17 AM CT10:17 AM ET14:17 GMT10:17 PM 北京时间7:17 AM MST9:17 AM EST9:17 AM CT18:17 UAE10:17 ET13:17 - Welker has dealt with an ankle injury throughout the week but will play Monday against Oakland.
Analysis: He was listed as probable on the depth chart but will play.
|Sep. 17 9:07 PM PT10:07 PM MT11:07 PM CT12:07 AM ET4:07 GMT12:07 PM 北京时间9:07 PM MST11:07 PM EST11:07 PM CT8:07 UAE0:07 ET3:07 - Welker caught three balls for 39 yards and a score in Sunday's 41-23 win over the Giants.
Analysis: Welker is still trying to learn Peyton Manning's nuances and it is well documented how he previously played with QBs such as Tom Brady during his time with New England and less well known with Joey Harrington from his days in Miami. It takes time for receivers to build chemistry so give the Welker-Manning combo some time before they flourish in fantasy play.
|Aug. 18 11:31 AM PT12:31 PM MT1:31 PM CT2:31 PM ET18:31 GMT2:31 AM 北京时间11:31 AM MST1:31 PM EST1:31 PM CT22:31 UAE14:31 ET17:31 - Derek Wolfe says he'll be back on the football field soon. The Denver Broncos hope fellow starters Champ Bailey, Wes Welker, Louis Vasquez and Stewart Bradley will be there with him.
Analysis: Welker, who caught an 11-yard TD pass from Peyton Manning, sprained his right ankle in Denver's 40-10 preseason loss at Seattle on Saturday night.
|Mar. 13 1:51 PM PT2:51 PM MT3:51 PM CT4:51 PM ET20:51 GMT4:51 AM 北京时间1:51 PM MST3:51 PM EST2:51 PM CT0:51 UAE (+1)16:51 ET19:51 - The Denver Broncos have found a new target for Peyton Manning, agreeing to a two-year deal with Welker. Broncos boss John Elway announced the move through his Twitter account on Wednesday. Said Elway: "Excited to have Wes join the Broncos. His production & toughness will be a great asset!"
Analysis: Welker is the premier slot receiver in the league, catching 118 passes for 1,354 yards and six TDs last season. He developed quite a rapport with Tom Brady during his time with the Patriots and the two became good friends.
