Wes Welker's Specialized Helmet Makes His Head Look Really Small

Kyle Newport@@KyleNewportFeatured ColumnistJanuary 12, 2014

Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker has dealt with concussion issues this season, and he missed the team's last three-and-a-half games as a result.  

To help protect himself, he donned an oversized helmet in the Broncos' 24-17 divisional-round win versus the San Diego Chargers. 

Although it certainly looks like it will help, the helmet creates a funny picture. Welker is a slight guy to begin with, and the giant helmet makes him look even smaller.

Welker finished with six receptions for 38 yards and a touchdown.
