Wes Welker is done for the preseason

We reported earlier today that Wes Welker has been practicing and would play this week if it was a meaningful game.

Broncos head coach John Fox told the media today that Welker will sit out for the remainder of the preseason, per NFL.com.

Wes Welker’s mild right ankle sprain will keep him out for the remainder of the preseason, but coach John Fox insists the slot receiver could play if there was a regular-season game tomorrow.

“This is preseason,” Fox explained. “We’re trying to get ready for our regular season and yet still hone our skills to get ready for that.”
