Welker set to rejoin the Broncos

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - Wide receiver Wes Welker is set to rejoin the Broncos.

The NFL and NFL Players Association have reached an agreement on a revised policy on performance-enhancing substances, part of which would make wide receiver Wes Welker eligible this week.

Welker was originally suspended four games under the old policy for performance-enhancing substance violations.

"I can tell you myself, personally, I won't have any complaints getting Wes [Welker] back this week," Julius Thomas said last Wednesday.

Welker missed the Broncos' first two games of the season due to his suspension but will be eligible for Sunday's matchup against the Seahawks.

"We've tried to stay abreast of what's going on," Peyton Manning said last Wednesday. "I've been in contact with Wes and I know he's chomping at the bit to get back; I know he's here in town. So obviously it would be great to get him back, just got to see how the process—see how it all shakes out."

The Broncos have placed Welker on the automatic two-day roster exemption list available to them. He is eligible to participate in all football-related activities but he will not count against the 53-man roster limit until Friday.
