Wide Receiver Wes Welker of the Denver Broncos has been cleared to fly, but not to play in Thursday night’s preseason finale against the Dallas Cowboys according to Denver Post’s Mike Klis.
Welker has not yet been medically cleared from his concussion to engage in contact, so he won’t play in the game Thursday night at AT&T Stadium. Then again, none of the Broncos’ other projected opening-day starters will play against the Cowboys.
The slot receiver’s recovery, though, is encouraging. He was seen joining the Broncos’ offense in the team’s weightlifting and exercise facility Tuesday and was able to travel Wednesday. The Broncos open the regular season September 7 against the Indianapolis Colts, 15 days after Welker suffered his most recent concussion.
