Broncos WR Wes Welker suffers concussion


Broncos WR Wes Welker suffers concussion

Wes Welker @WesWelker took a big hit to the helmet area from Texans safety D.J Swearinger during the Broncos' Saturday night preseason game. Welker left the field immediately and was taken in for further evaluations. It was later reported by head coach John Fox that Welker had suffered a concussion. This is the third time Welker has suffered a concussion in his last 10 games, including the preseason. His availability for the regular-season opener is currently in doubt.

Fantasy Analysis:

Welker is a part of the most dangerous passing attack in the league, and this is a slight blow to the Broncos' offense. More importantly, Welker's own safety is on the line. His future is in danger if he continues to take hits similar to Saturday night's. There's serious talk about whether Welker should consider retiring after this latest concussion, his third in nine months. I would be cautious of drafting Welker at this point in time and look toward Emmanuel Sanders @E_Sanders88 taking a larger role in the offense.
