Welker is unlikely to play in the Broncos’ matchup with Houston this week. He still has not been cleared to practice as of Wednesday and was held out of last week’s game against San Diego.
Welker suffered a concussion during the Broncos’ win over the Tennessee Titans on Dec. 9 and has not seen the field since. The likelihood of Denver not taking a chance on its slot receiver’s health is great, so there is a chance Welker may not be available until the playoffs. If he does not suit up, Andre Caldwell is in line to be targeted again frequently after his performance last week.
