After missing five weeks with his second concussion of the season, wide receiver Wes Welker returned to the field Sunday for the Broncos' AFC Divisional matchup against the Chargers. And he did so wearing an oversized helmet and a new mouthguard.
Taylor Twellman, a former U.S. Men's National Team member and MLS player, was forced from the game in 2010 due to a serious concussion. He now covers soccer for ESPN.
Welker, meanwhile, suffered his first concussion of the 2013 season back on Nov. 17, and then again on Dec. 9. He had been sidelined until Sunday.
Through two quarters, Welker has two catches for 10 yards, including a touchdown grab.
