Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (concussion) said he's ready to go for the team's Divisional playoff game next weekend after recovering from his second concussion this season. "It took a little bit of time," Welker said. "Even when I felt I was 100 percent, looking back you weren't 100 percent. It's always a tricky injury and just trying to manage it and everything else, but the doctors and trainers did a great job of just doing the things necessary to get me back out on the field."
