05:03 PM ET 12.11 | Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker suffered his second concussion in as many weeks on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans, which left his status for the team's Thursday Night Football matchup against division team San Diego Chargers in serious jeopardy. With a short week to prepare, it was highly unlikely that Welker would be able to play but there has been no official report.The Broncos will need to have other options step up without Welker in the mix, but they could still take advantage of a vulnerable Chargers secondary.

Changes nothing....

Anyone here think the Chargers have a chance, with or without Welker in the Broncos lineup?

Not I.

Do we now have an Old Spice jinx?

How many do you need, before someone says whoa? With what's going on today, Players....not just the NFL need to say....wait a second.

You almost get the sense that one more crucial hit will send him into retirement.

I think his career says otherwise, but Wes needs to seriously consider retiring.

185lb receiver who's made his career running routes over the middle of the field

I'm not sure he's fragile so much as simply too small for such a tough job.

Will the refs call fair games this week? The back story congress just might look into the calls that have changed the out come of games this year. Watch the tapes people, the proof is in the pudding.

Size dictates why one must wrap the gerbil in duct tape first.

Do you make holes in the duct tape so that the gerbil can breath.... interesting.

I admire Welker's toughness and courage, considering there weren't many his size & caliber in the NFL that had major roles as a WR. However, it was a no brainer that he wouldn't last forever taking the number of hard hits, he recieves.

that's what the Pats were afraid of and let him go.

Depends on which Charger team shows up.

Something tells me he is done for the year. Two concussions in a 4 week span and they expect him back in a week or two..... I highly doubt it.

Scrambled brains. Time to consider another line of work.

After a couple of concussions, putting your head on the pillow too hard can concuss you, ask Aikman.

But I often wonder wbout some of the hits guys bounce up from slowly, appearing unscathed, like the Edelman TD late last Sunday when he got lambasted as he was catching it. That hit had to rattle the grey matter, more than a little.

Exactly....

The hilarious part is that they replaced him with Amendola. Talk about fragile...
