Knowshon busts loose in Miami

Good Morning, Broncos fans! As Jeff Legwold notes, Wes Welker's latest concussion figures to loom large in Denver's upcoming roster decisions.

The team already lost Jordan Norwood earlier in the week to a torn ACL; he'd been expected to stick as a punt returner and sixth receiver.

Given Welker's concussion history, it's no sure thing that he'll be back anytime soon.

If he's out for an extended period of time, it's a safe bet that Andre Caldwell would be the prime candidate to see more action.

Caldwell - who is versed in each of Denver's wideout roles - could line up across from Demaryius Thomas, with Emmanuel Sanders shifting inside to the slot.

Or, Sanders could remain outside, with Caldwell taking Welker's place.

Rookie Cody Latimer, Denver's other roster lock at the position, is listed as the primary backup to Sanders.
