Wes Welker Watch - Concussion

The Denver Broncos received a big blow on Satruday night when their WR Wes Welker suffered a concussion after taking a hit up high from D.J. Swearinger. This is Welker's third concussion in the last 10 months, after suffering two last season.

Unfortunately for Welker, he had suffered a number of concussions and head injuries during his playing time with the New England Patriots. Depending on the severity of this concussion, Welker's career could be in jeopardy here. He needs to put the longevity of his health over his career in the NFL.

Last season Welker and Peyton Manning had a great chemistry. In just 13 games, Welker caught 73 balls for 778 yards and a career high 10 touchdowns.

If Welker is forced to miss time, Emmanuel Sanders and Andre Caldwell will see more reps. Clearly this is good news for all Demaryius Thomas and Julius Thomas owners as they will be targeted even more.
