The NFLPA voted to approve the NFL's drug policy, but last-minute "unresolved issues" have delayed the reinstatement of suspended players like Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker, according to reports. Those issued dragged on Friday night and past the Saturday 4 p.m. EDT deadline for the Broncos to activate Welker on their roster.
It's past 2 p.m. and Wes Welker is not on the Broncos' 53 man roster. He won't play tomorrow against Chiefs.— Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) September 13, 2014
NFL confirms still no drug policy agreement. Deadline has come and gone to activate players for Sunday. So Welker, Scandrick, etc. wait.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) September 13, 2014
Welker won't play Sunday. Thanks NFL.
NFL: "After years of negotiations, here's our proposal." Players: "Signed!" NFL: "Whoa that was fast." [makes up unresolved issues]— MileHighReport (@MileHighReport) September 13, 2014
