Five days after leaving a game with a concussion, Broncos receiver Wes Welker was cleared for full practice Friday and listed as probable for Denver’s game against New England.
Wes Welker returned to practice Thursday for the first time since leaving Sunday’s game against Kansas City with a concussion.
