John Fox: Wes Welker in 'exercise mode right now'

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

"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.
