Injury Report: Welker likely to play

The Broncos practiced Thursday in cold and snowy conditions, which they may face on Sunday night in Foxboro.

Peyton Manning was a full participant, while Wes Welker, Julius Thomas, and Joel Dreessen made limited returns; Champ Bailey was again limited.

According to Jeff Legwold, Welker is "on track" to face his old team.

New England's injury report from Thursday is a carbon copy of Wednesday's, with TE Michael Hoomanawanui absent and eight others listed as limited.


Videos: BTV on practice; Jack Del Rio, Adam Gase, and Wes Welker speak afterward; Omar Bolden demonstrates speed curls using resistance bands.

Welker is trying to downplay his return to New England a bit; his old teammates continue to offer only reverence in their quotes.
