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.

Relative Age Effect and How It Applied to the US Performance at the World Cup

Jul 24 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Football is a sport that spans cultures around the world, one that transcends conflicts, one that anyone, in some form or another, can play. But the beautiful game is not an equal-opportunity sport, at least not at the highest level. Research by Dave Oleson and Greg Laughlin of Statwing found that players born earlier in the calendar year were significantly more represented at the 2014 World Cup than those born in the latter months. In fact, there were app ...

Denver Broncos Quarterbacks: In Brock you trust?

Kansas City Chiefs v Denver Broncos
In 1998 starting QB John Elway missed significant time due to injuries. In his stead backup Bubby Brister stepped in and kept the Broncos offense humming, winning each of his 4 starts. Flash forward to 2014.  We have an offense aimed to make another assault on opposing defenses, a defense poised to become elite, and a team resolved to make another run at a championship.  At the helm we have 38 year-old Peyton Man ...

More Yacking about YAC - Peyton Manning got his passing yards through the air

Jul 16 2014 10:00am CDT | Source: milehighreport

2014 CMT Music Awards - Arrivals
Do the best QBs get more or less from yards after the catch (YAC) than lower tier QBs? Where does Peyton fall in this? At the simplest level, there are only two types of routes that receivers run: ones where they catch the ball while standing still and ones where they are still moving when they catch the ball (Editor's note: whoa). It would stand to reason that QBs who completed more passes on routes where receivers are sti ...

Emmanuel Sanders of the Pittsburgh Steel
The day Emmanuel Sanders was signed I went back and watched four Steelers games from last season to get an idea of what type of player he is Recently there has been a lot of talk about what Emmanuel Sanders brings to the Broncos offense but after I had watched a few games much of it went against what I saw. I didn't want to say anything until I had the chance to watch the rest of his 2013 season t ...

Why Aqib Talib Is the Key NFL Offseason Acquisition so Far

Jun 13 2014 10:55am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Denver Broncos Rookie Minicamp
The Denver Broncos bolstered their glaring weakness in the secondary this offseason by signing Pro Bowl free agent cornerback Aqib Talib. With shutdown corner potential, Talib’s playmaking ability will help Denver not only put the clamps on opposing receivers and tight ends, but also it will also help create more turnovers for a team with a historically great offense. The Broncos are hoping that Talib’s physicality and toughness will rub off on the ...
