Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker is soon expected to be reinstated.
And that's only the fourth time I've written that sentence.
After premature reports and false alarms, the NFL and NFLPA have agreed on the revised drug policy that will reinstate the like of Denver's Welker, Dallas' Orlando Scandrick, and as many as 18 others, according to multiple reports, citing multiple league sources.

Broncos Wes Welker, whose four-game suspension is being lifted, is returning to work with Denver this morning.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 17, 2014
Welker hasn't had a full practice in well over a month. Hopefully these reports are true, because he'll benefit from all three days of practice to shake off the rust.
