Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker suffered a concussion during the fourth quarter of his team's 27-17 win over the Kansas City Chiefs.

Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker suffered a concussion in his team's game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Nov. 17.

Joan Niesen of the Denver Post wrote about how it happened:

"With just more than 11 minutes remaining in the game, Peyton Manning passed the ball right -- about six yards -- to Welker, who caught it and began about a 14-yard run. At the end of the run, defensive end Allen Bailey got a hold of Welker to bring him down, and as he did, safety Eric Berry crashed into crashed into Welker from the other direction, sandwiching the receiver between the two Chiefs defenders.

"A pile of players formed on top of the group, and when it cleared, Welker was slow to get up, though he did so under his own power."

Niese adds Welker then went to the sideline to evaluate the situation by himself, eventually returning to the game to haul in a nine-yard catch before he left the game for good. 

ESPN's Jeff Legwold reported on Nov. 18 that Welker "is undergoing concussion evaluation and will not be a full participant in practice until Friday at the earliest." 

Legwold spoke with Broncos interim head coach Jack Del Rio, who said the Denver wide receiver will undergo baseline concussion testing on Monday.

"Frist concern obviously is that he's ready to return when doctors give him the green light. When he's able to go, he'll go. 

"My understanding is we followed protocol, he was cleared to return, he had symptoms that came up and he was pulled. He'll go through protocol this week..(Doctors) checked him, allowed to return, symptoms came that were problematic and he was pulled."

In his first season in Denver, the 32-year-old Welker has caught 61 receptions for 648 yards and nine touchdowns in 10 games. His Broncos beat the Chiefs 27-17 to hand them their first loss of the season. Both teams are currently tied atop the AFC West with identical 9-1 records.
