Denver Broncos starting slot receiver Wes Welker’s mild right ankle sprain will keep him out for the remainder of the preseason, but coach John Fox insists he could play if there was a regular-season game tomorrow.

Welker didn’t participate in 7-on-7 and 11-on-11 drills Thursday, but he would be available to play Saturday if it were a real game:

“If we had a game tomorrow, he’d be out there,” Broncos Head Coach Fox said.

 

Champ Bailey already has shed his crutches after suffering a strained foot last week, but he’s still expected to be sidelined for several weeks. The three-time All-Pro was on crutches and in a walking boot on his left foot after Denver’s 40-10 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Bailey later revealed he was injured late in the first half when a Seahawks player pushed his foot off of Bailey’s.

 

The Broncos got another scare in their defensive backfield Thursday after cornerback Dominique Rodgers- Cromartie suffered what appeared to be a back injury about 20 minutes into practice Thursday, but eventually returned to the field and will be fine.

“He’s got a bump on his back, but he’s fine,” Fox said.
