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.

Ultimate fans predicting a blowout in Foxboro...and we're not talking about snow

Oct 31 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: milehighreport

It's Patriots Week and that means Manning-Brady talk dominates the airwaves, but Broncos fans know this is a team game, and neither Manning's brilliance or Brady's efficiency can win by itself. The team whose offense scores a lot of touchdowns, whose defense creates turnovers and whose special teams doesn't screw up (ahem!) is the team that wins. And guess what? Our ultimate fa ...

Grading ESPN’s 4 Worst Fantasy Projections For Week 9

Oct 29 2014 2:25pm CDT | Source: SportsGrid

Week 8 was one of the biggest fantasy weekends in recently memory, with six players going for more than 30 points (normally there’s only one or two). Let’s see how I did… - Bernard Pierce was a last minute scratch — not because of an injury, because he sucks. I knew he’d never get to nine points. Point: Sportsgrid - Russell Wilson fell short of ESPN’s lofty expectation he’d finish with 27 fantasy points against the Panthers. He ended up with half that. Point: Sportsgrid ...

Tom Brady prefers his offensive weapons to Peyton Manning's

Oct 27 2014 1:16pm CDT | Source: SBNation

Most would argue that Manning has the better offense around him, but Brady disagrees. It's Denver Broncos vs. New England Patriots week, which means endless Peyton Manning and Tom Brady comparisons. The first sure-to-be-overhyped-and-overanalyzed nugget comes from Brady, who told CSN New England that he'll take his offensive weapons over Manning's. "I love the guys that I play with," Brady said. "I wouldn't change ...

Broncos vs. 49ers - 7 questions answered

Oct 21 2014 1:44pm CDT | Source: milehighreport

I have both the questions and answers this week! Will the Broncos play a lot of zone to help keep eyes on Colin Kaepernick? The Broncos mixed it up. Their coverages were not a product of worrying about a mobile quarterback. They used a lot of Cover 3, some man, some zone as they usually do each week.  What struck me about this game was that the Niners did not offer a lot of looks in t ...

Broncos' Peyton Manning Breaks Brett Favre's All-Time Passing Touchdowns Record

Oct 20 2014 2:19pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning wasted no time breaking Brett Favre's all-time record of 508 career touchdown passes, needing just four offensive drives in Sunday's 42-17 win over the San Francisco 49ers to record his first three touchdowns of the game. Manning, who entered the contest with 506 career touchdowns, led the Broncos 56 yards on their first possession, which was capped off by a three- ...

Injuries, Lack of Serviceable Depth Hamstringing 49ers in Heated Division Race

Oct 20 2014 1:14am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

It took two drives to see the ugliness that was to come. Two drives, two touchdowns and later a record. The Denver Broncos marched merrily along against the San Francisco 49ers during those two first-quarter drives, with quarterback Peyton Manning throwing touchdown passes to wide receivers Wes Welker and Emmanuel Sanders. It was easy. But too easy, even for Manning. On just those first two scoring drives Manning needed only seven pass attempts to throw for 111 ya ...
