Injury Report: Welker, Wolfe out

Wes Welker and Derek Wolfe have been ruled out for Thursday night's game against San Diego, while Champ Bailey is listed as questionable after having been limited during Wednesday's practice.

Trindon Holliday and C.J. Anderson were full participants and are listed as probable, along with 13 other Broncos, and all figure to be available.

It's expected that Jacob Tamme will occupy the slot in Welker's absence.

Bailey is unlikely to play; John Fox says the coaching staff may have rushed him back too early for the Week 13 game at KC.

For San Diego, WR Eddie Royal and CB Johnny Patrick are questionable, while eight others are probable.

Is there anything more typical of Peyton Manning than him wearing a helmet while in the cold tub, so that he can hear Adam Gase instructing the other quarterbacks on the practice field?

Holding Denver scoreless after the first possession of the second half of their first matchup gives San Diego's defense plenty of confidence heading into tomorrow's rematch. The return of linebackers Jarret Johnson and Melvin Ingram from injuries also helps their cause.
