Broncos’ Wes Welker eager for return after month away

This is a summary. To read the whole story subscribe to BostonGlobe.com

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.

It’s the longest the 10-year pro has been sidelined.

Welker missed the Broncos’ last 3½ games after sustaining his second concussion in a four-week span just before halftime in a game against Tennessee on Dec. 8.

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.

Denver (13-3) hosts the Chargers (10-7) in the AFC Divisional round.
