Wes Welker suspended 4 games (merge)

Recommended Posts

Why would you be surprised? The fact that he's at practice is good news. He's right on track to play Sunday Night

I also believe that he will play and play well.

Someone pull this guy aside and tell him to hang it up before he ends up like a vegetable. What Welker is doing isn't courageous, it's just stupid.

 

I wonder if the Broncos organization (coaching staff and players) are pressuring him to get back out onto the field as quickly as possible?

 

If I was in his shoes I would hope my family and friends would be encouraging and pressuring me to retire, that money and fame doesn't bring happiness and doesn't make the man.

He will be fine as long as his head doesn't get hit...

Then Peyton will run down the field and get another taunting penalty!

It isn't the Bronco's coach's choice he has to pass the concussion protocol before he can play

 

There are basically four components: the baseline cognitive test, a rehab program, the independent neurologist, and the team physician. A player may pass most of the criteria, but he will not be cleared until he passes all of it.

 

I am not sure showing up for practice means much. He has had more than a couple concussions the last one kept him out 3 wks. I would say it is 50/50

 

I agree with the other poster Wes might want to think about hanging them up after this year

"IF" the NFL was serious about concussions they would by rule make the player sit out an entire season after one concussion, with pay of course.  The brain needs more time to heel other than 2 or 3 weeks after a concussion.

 

This is smarter for the NFL and player too...

1.) It prevents the player or reduces the chances and odds that the player gets alzheimer's in the long term.

2.) Saves the NFL hundreds of millions of dollars in lawsuits.

 

I shake my head whenever I hear: "he's been cleared to play"  and just two weeks ago was laid out unconscious with a concussion.

The frequency of a repeat concussion happens quicker with contact once the first BIG one happens, which was against the Chiefs for Welker last year. If I am the Broncos GM, I'd rest him till the end of the bye week and let him play after week 4. It is more important to have Welker as the season goes on, instead of right off the bat.

 

Well, he went an offseason without contact and as soon as he got his first semblance of real contact to the head, the concussion happened. It is only a matter of time, it is not IF, it is only about WHEN with repeat concussions, based on all that I have read.

 

But if I had to bet, he sits out game 1 and comes back game 2 vs the Chiefs at home.

I can see his mad face now as he confronts Davis. " I'm not Tom Brady!"

Still not cleared for contact but did show up at practice. I would be surprised if he plays Sunday night.

He was throwing with Manning at last Thursday's exhibition game/

they wont even attempt to clear him until Wednesday or Thursday...//I'd bet money he plays

If he clears the benchmarks, he'll play. But the timeline is obviously constrained for him. I think, with it being a night game, that extra few hours to kickoff might work in his favor. I bet he'll be a game time decision.

It wouldn't be a great idea for him to play. Especially since he plays in the slot and we have one of the if not the biggest hitter in the league.

But you probably wouldn't..You know that, right?

Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker returned to the practice field Monday as he continues through the NFL's concussion protocol. Welker has not been cleared for contact and is still a question mark for Sunday night's regular-season opener against the Indianpolis Colts.

The players that have come forth with the NFL lawsuit said they were in pain everyday and had issues with light as well. For sure it is a case by case basis but for he is the danger zone. I really hope Denver proceeds cautiously with him.

There are many players that also have zero effects from multiple concussions.

This is off topic, but doesn't he have some type of perverted foot fetish? I heard that somewhere.

No, that's Rex Ryan

Like who?

Probably every player in the sixties had multiple concussions. The equipment used was far inferior to that worn now. Mike Golic who played on the eighties has said he was sure he had multiple concussions but they weren't classified as such even then.

How does that prove they don't live without pain? Golic has said he lives with pain. Howie Long said he has a tough time getting out of bed every day. Phil Simms once said "there is pain in life and then there is football pain."

Shoulder pain, knee pain, back pain Ofcourse. We were talking about effects from concussions. Migrans, anxiety issues, parkinsons disease have all been possible long term effects of concussions. Not all players that have had concussions have these types of issues

I know from my own personal experiences with Wrestling and 2 overseas deployments, in which I have sustained well over 5 concussions just from wrestling in high school plus a few more from the deployments, that I deal with many of the lasting effects.  Sensitivity to light, eyes going in and out of focus, high pitched ringing, random headaches that literally side line you for a day...

 

I can only assume that many NFL players experience the same after effects. 

 

Just my 2 cents on the topic.

The vast majority do and certainty for a guy like Welker who has had a severe concussion (KC game) and now two follow up ones, he is in the danger zone.

Seriously, Welker should be banned. Three concussions already and the season has not started. If the league will ban for life any player convicted of spouasal assault twice then "self assault" should also be grounds for banishment. You know what the future may hold for Welker and it is not pretty.

    • In Boston as well as the rest of the country most all top sources are citing Hoyer as the man tobeat at the position......Ill take major sources or minor ones but thats just me....   .https://boston.cbslocal.com/2020/05/26/patriots-starting-brian-hoyer-over-jarrett-stidham-would-not-be-surprising/
    • We beat the Jags 33-13 Week 11 while still fighting for the Playoffs I'll take that 100 times out of 100, if that isnt so good not sure what in the world is. The 2nd game was the season finale with both teams long eliminated with zero impact except draft position increasing for the losing squad. Since then one team has improved their talent and the other has lost more than they have gained. Cant see this being anything other than a sweep, especially since the road game in Jacksonville is week 1, even better for the men in Blue and White.
    • We called it Bulletin Board Material       The Secrecy is at every level of the game
    • The NFL uses secrecy to gain an advantage point. In the draft so they get their player.  They hide plays until they are in the Super Bowl so teams can’t watch tape of them. Change signals regularly. Etc...we can’t assume a FO is going to publicly divulge their inner workings. I don’t anyway. I assume that Chad and JB know where they stand behind closed doors. Now if that doesn’t happen then there is a problem. Meanwhile, be respectful and honest without saying everything that your rival could use.
    • Our style of D still doesn’t lend itself to many turnovers thus minimizing defensive scoring, IMO. I can see more 3 and outs/punts forced and a Top 10 D possibility but Top 5 D, I don’t see it right off the bat.    Top 10 offense however, I can see it more likely if the QB levels of play go up like expected and high floor of OL remains.   Top 10 O and Top 10 D, we’re winning the division if both happen.
