ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — There wasn’t much time for the Broncos offensive coordinator to ask questions.
He knew about as much as anyone else.
Wes Welker had made a catch on a quick out-route, wheeled back inside for a few more yards, then found himself caught between Chiefs safety Eric Berry and defensive end Allen Bailey.
They smashed into Welker like a pair of 200-plus-pound cymbals.
The ball was knocked loose and the fear was that so had some of Welker’s screws.
Team trainers looked him over. Eventually, Welker lifted himself up to one knee, then walked off the field.
“I wasn’t sure what was going on with that whole thing,” offensive coordinator Adam Gase said. “They told me, ‘Hey, he’s out.’ ”
