It wasn’t Santa Claus with a sleigh filled with goodies, but the Broncos did have some very welcome faces at practice on Wednesday.

Joan Niesen of the Denver Post reports that wide receiver Wes Welker participated in practice for the first time since suffering a concussion against the Titans on December 8th. It’s unclear whether he’ll play in the season finale against the Raiders, but getting back on the practice field is a good sign about his progress through the league’s concussion protocol.
