ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) – Peyton Manning will have all of his wide receivers available for the first time in a month when the Denver Broncos begin their playoff run Jan. 12 in the AFC divisional round.

Coach John Fox said Monday that slot receiver Wes Welker has recovered from his second concussion that kept him out of the Broncos’ final three games, saying, “He has been cleared to play.”

Welker set a career high with 10 touchdown catches in his first season in Denver after six years in New England. He caught 73 passes for 778 yards.

Welker was concussed just before halftime in the Broncos’ win over Tennessee on Dec. 8. He also suffered a concussion against Kansas City on Nov. 17 but didn’t miss any games.

He returned to practice on a limited basis last week and began working on his timing with Manning.
