ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Wes Welker is unlikely to suit up for Denvers game Thursday against San Diego after leaving Sundays win over Tennessee with his second concussion in four games. Speaking to reporters Monday, coach John Fox didnt rule out his receiver but said Welkers health is the top priority and he would go through the standard NFL protocol for players who have endured concussions. "The league is pretty strict," Fox said. "Were obviously concerned with any players health, whatever that is." Though there are no hard-and-fast guidelines for returning, the best-case scenario for players who pass their post-concussion tests early in the week is to return to light practice Thursday, full practice Friday and be listed as probable for the game. Welker will be under more scrutiny because this is his second concussion since Nov. 17. On Sunday, he was going low to catch a pass when Titans safety George Wilson hit him in the helmet. Fox said he hadnt watched a replay, so he couldnt give his opinion about the hit. "These things happen. You dont like to see them happen," Fox said. "Again, well have the players safety as our No. 1 priority." Jacob Tamme would be a candidate to substitute for Welker as slot receiver. Len Barker Jersey . Hes the same player he always was, only now his efforts are being rewarded. The rookie manager has made a habit of heaping praise on others when things are going well, and accepting criticism when they arent. But in the case of Hurtado, its what the coach is NOT saying that may be the secret to a superb run of form. Francisco Lindor Jersey . - The Detroit Lions have 13 takeaways this season — three less than all of last season — and the defence isnt the only unit pleased with the performance. https://www.cheapindiansonline.com/2848u...ey-indians.html. City has reached new heights under manager Manuel Pellegrini as they transition from big spending/immediate impact to perennial contender. Yaya Toures seeming discontent Tuesday may complicate that, as does the little issue of Financial Fair Play. Dean Chance Indians Jersey .com) - On the bright side, either the Minnesota Wild or Buffalo Sabres will end their losing streak on Thursday night. Graig Nettles Jersey . Wheeler scored two goals, including the winner, as the Winnipeg Jets beat the Minnesota Wild 6-4 on Friday in a game that featured a seven-goal first period. PORTLAND, Ore. -- Damian Lillard had 32 points and the short-handed Portland Trail Blazers rallied to beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 108-97 on Sunday night. Thomas Robinson had 14 points and a career-high 18 rebounds for Portland, which won its second straight after a three-game slump. Kevin Love scored 31 for Minnesota, which had won three in a row.
