Wes Welker will miss his second straight game Sunday vs Texans

Keeping an eye on the health of our beloved Wes Welker.

Yes, I still say beloved. One botched contract negotiation doesn't negate six years of lovely receptions.

Welker suffered a concussion in the Broncos' win over the Tennessee Titans, and missed the next week against the Chargers.

Of course that San Diego game, which Denver lost 27-20, was a short week as it was on a Thursday night, so surely the infallible Welker would be back this week against the Texans?

Not so fast.

Yes, Welker will be missing two games in a row. He hasn't done that since 2009 when he missed Week 2 and 3. Other than that, Welker hasn't missed a regular season game due to injury in the last seven years.
