Wes Welker WR DEN 4 Months

Welker (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, ESPN.com reports.

We'll revisit Welker's status Thursday, but the report suggests that the wideout should be ready to play Sunday against the Chargers. Welker caught six passes for a season-high 82 receiving yards in Week 14's win over the Bills.

Welker had six catches on six targets for a season-high 82 yards during Sunday's win over the Bills.

The Broncos' air attack was very limited Sunday, as quarterback Peyton Manning threw only 20 passes, none of which went for touchdowns. Welker led the team in receiving yards and co-led them in targets with Emmanuel Sanders. It was a decent output for Welker, though hardly one that moved the fantasy needle. He'll look to keep his positive momentum going in Week 15 against the Chargers, who he had only five yards against back in Week 8.

Welker caught 1-of-2 targets for 12 yards in Sunday's 29-16 win over the Chiefs.

Welker converted a 3rd-and-10 during the first quarter, and then went missing for the rest of the day. Even with Julius Thomas (ankle) sidelined, Welker hasn't seen many targets, as the Broncos seemingly prefer to just throw even more passes to Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders.

Welker had four catches on four targets for 18 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Dolphins.

The touchdown was Welker's second this season, though he's failed to reach the 65-yard mark in any game. Demaryius Thomas (10 catches on 13 targets for 87 yards and three touchdowns) and Emmanuel Sanders (nine catches on 13 targets for 125 yards) continue to dominate the looks from quarterback Peyton Manning, which keeps Welker's fantasy upside fairly limited.

Welker had four catches on six targets for 28 yards Sunday against the Rams.

Welker continues to be a shell of what he was last season, as he has yet to record more than 60 yards in a game this season, while catching just one touchdown in eight games. However, he could see a spike in usage in Week 12, as Emmanuel Sanders could miss out after suffering a concussion on Sunday.

After getting knocked out of last Sunday's game against the Patriots with a lower-back injury, Welker was able to practice fully all week, though that did little for his fantasy production Sunday. Welker has been a shell of what he was last season, failing to reach 65 yards in a game this season while scoring just one touchdown.

Welker (back) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Welker is out there if you need him this week, though with fellow wideouts Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders both seeing plenty of targets in the Denver offense, Welker has been a hit-or-miss option of late.

Welker (back) is considered day-to-day moving forward, USA Today reports.

Welker was knocked out of Sunday's loss to the Patriots after taking a considerable blow to his lower back. Fortunately, Welker avoided a serious injury and should return to the field soon. While his practice involvement will be monitored throughout this week, Welker's current day-to-day status is certainly encouraging for his availability this Sunday against the lowly Raiders.
