Wes Welker says he has no apprehensions about concussions or rust as he returns to the Broncos’ lineup Sunday for the first time in more than a month.

The Broncos sorely missed him four days later in a 27-20 loss to San Diego, when they were just 2 for 9 on third down and suffered their only home loss of the season.
