Wes Welker Being Ruled Out is No Big Deal for the Denver Broncos
The Denver Broncos have ruled out wide receiver Wes Welker for Sunday’s regular season finale against the Oakland Raiders due to lingering effects of two concussions in a four-week span. This should come to the surprise of no one as the Raiders again are in the basement in the AFC West by a significant margin this season and Denver should cruise past them without much resistance.
While the injury list for the Broncos going into the playoffs is extraordinarily long for a team that likely will have the No. 1 overall seed in the AFC playoffs, there is no point into why they should add another to this list that is seemingly growing by the day. This includes losing their talented but troubled pass rushing force in Von Miller for the season after tearing the ACL in his right knee against the Houston Texans last weekend. Replacing Miller will be Nate Irving who has a personal significant injury history as well.
All in all, the AFC Playoffs might go through the mile high city; however, with all the injuries that are racking up, it shall be interesting to see what, if anything, the Broncos can do come playoff time. If the injuries persist throughout this week, it could be one-and-done for this extremely talented franchise led by future hall of fame quarterback Peyton Manning. Speaking of Manning, the Broncos should get out to an early lead then pull him, just in case — not to mention it’ll give backup quarterback Brock Osweiler some much needed reps as he hasn’t seen much of the field since being drafted in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft.
