Welker's return brings more concussion questions
DENVER (AP) Wes Welker's receiving stats over a productive NFL career are impressive. Still, there's another set of numbers associated with him that cannot be ignored: three concussions, nine months.
Cleared to play following his third diagnosed concussion since November, the Broncos receiver will get back in a game Sunday, when Denver travels to Seattle for a Super Bowl rematch. Welker's suspension for testing positive for amphetamines in the offseason was cut in half when the NFL and the union agreed to a revamped drug policy.
Still, the comeback feels a bit rushed, with the potential for life-altering consequences if the next big hit the 33-year-old takes to the head winds up being his last.
