After a promising showing against the Seahawks, Wes Welker left the Broncos second preseason game with a sprained ankle and did not return. Welker caught three passes for 31 yards and a touchdown in 17 snaps.
Denver reported the injury after the game, but it did not give any detail as to the extent of Welker's injury. He could miss the Broncos next game, even if the sprain isn't serious, as a precaution.
Fantasy impact: If this is what we can expect from Welker and Peyton Manning this season, owners should be pleased. Eric Decker played 39 snaps on Saturday night, but he finished with just one reception for 10 yards.
It's hard to tell how the targets will be allocated in the Broncos offense. However, Welker looks like a solid WR2/3 with upside. If he misses time, Decker and tight end Julius Thomas should see a boost in action.
