John Fox says retirement hasn't been broached by Wes Welker

Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker isn't contemplating retirement as far as coach John Fox has heard.

Welker has suffered his third concussion in 10 months.

“I can’t give a level. It’s just a concussion,” Fox said. “I don’t think there’s part concussion, half concussion. Either you’re concussed or you’re not, the way I understand it.

“Our first priority is his safety and well-being. I know as an organization his well-being is our first priority. . . . We just take it one day at a time. We’ll see how he gets through today, and I get updated on every day medically on every player, including Wes in this case. We’ll see what tomorrow brings.”

Fox said Welker hasn't broached the idea of retiring.

“That’s not been brought up at all,” Fox said. “I didn’t sense that.”
