The Denver Broncos saw a glimpse of what the Peyton Manning to Wes Welker connection could do Saturday night in Seattle, as the Pro Bowl quarterback hit the Pro Bowl receiver for an 11-yard touchdown late in the first quarter. Welker had even been productive earlier, hauling in two other passes for 20 yards, while also tackling Kam Chancellor after the Seahawks safety recovered a Julius Thomas fumble.
But it was Welker's fearless, head-first dive into the end zone that was an orange and blue wonder to behold.
Unfortunately Denver's glimpse was just that - a short glimpse - as the touchdown ended up being Welker's last catch of the night. Denver's prized free agent acquisition left the game with an ankle injury.
There is good news. Moments ago, the Broncos updated Welker's status: he suffered a mild right ankle sprain in the loss.
Let's hope it does.
