Wes Welker is making daily progress on his return from a third concussion in under a year.

Take a look at how the NFL has evolved from its humble roots, and the efforts being made to ensure it continues to grow.

"He's in the exercise mode right now. He won't be back out there until he's completely well," coach John Fox told KOA-AM radio Wednesday morning, via Broncos public relations vice president Patrick Smyth.

Players aren't allowed to be in "exercise mode" until symptoms have begun to subside, so that is a positive step. The veteran receiver still needs to clear concussion protocol before he can play in the Week 1 opener against the Indianapolis Colts.

On Tuesday, Fox told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport that Welker was doing "fantastic" and there is a lot of optimism.

While positive vibes have been emanating from Denver almost daily regarding Welker, the Broncos must still take a "one day at a time" approach.
