Wes Welker ruled out for Denver Broncos vs. Raiders

The Broncos will go another week without Wes Welker.

The wide receiver has been ruled out of Denver's Week 17 finale against the Oakland Raiders. It will be the third consecutive missed game for Welker, who suffered a concussion in Week 14.

Welker did take positive steps this week, returning to practice on a limited basis. The Broncos are taking a cautious approach with the veteran, who has suffered two concussions this season.

The likely goal is to have Welker ready for the playoffs. The Broncos already have clinched a first-round bye, which means Welker will get another two weeks of rest and recovery before the divisional round of the playoffs.

The latest "Around The League Podcast" delivered a Christmas gift, analyzing the chaotic playoff picture in both conferences.
