Welker says weather will not slow Broncos

By Larry Fine NEW YORK (Reuters) - Receiver Wes Welker arrived with his Denver team mates in wintry New Jersey on Sunday, confident that weather would not slow the Broncos' vaunted attack in the February 2 Super Bowl against the Seattle Seahawks. "Weather is part of what it is. And part of what football is supposed to be," Welker said about the National Football League title game at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, where more than a foot of snow fell earlier in the week.

NFL Team Report - New England Patriots - INSIDE SLANT One thing that everyone can agree on is that the early second-quarter collision between New England Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib and Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker had a major impact on the end result of the AFC Championship Game Sunday afternoon in Denver. Talib limped to the sideline and eventually the locker room with a knee injury that kept him from the remainder of the game.

Manning's legacy may have been at stake, but either quarterback can only carry his team as far as his teammates permit.

CB Marquice Cole was signed to the 53-man roster to fill the void created when CB Chris Harris was placed on injured reserve because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Cole was released by the Patriots on Dec. 26, and his locker at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., was still intact.

DE Jeremy Mincey notched the first of the Broncos' four sacks Sunday. Mincey joined the team before the Week 16 win over Houston and has been used often as a pass-rush specialist when the Broncos go into nickel and dime packages. QB Peyton Manning wasn't spectacular, but completed 25 of 36 passes for 230 yards, two touchdowns and an interception Sunday. Manning kept the focus on checkdowns, quick outs and screens, which is why he had no completions longer than 21 yards.

NFL: Broncos will have Welker back for playoffs

Denver Broncos receiver Wes Welker has recovered from a concussion and cleared to play by doctors in the upcoming NFL playoffs, Broncos coach John Fox said Monday. Welker missed Denver's final three regular-season games after suffering his second concussion of the season on December 8 in a victory over Tennessee. The Broncos matched Seattle for the NFL's best regular-season record at 13-3 to claim the top seed position in the American Conference playoffs.

NFL Team Report - Denver Broncos - INSIDE SLANT Never in 2013 did the Denver Broncos have their intended starting defense on the field. And thanks to pass rusher Von Miller's season-ending torn anterior cruciate ligament at Houston last Sunday, they Broncos never will line up that defense.

NFL Team Report - Denver Broncos - INSIDE SLANT With a timetable for Derek Wolfe's return still unknown, Kevin Vickerson lost for the season due to a hip injury, the Denver Broncos' recent troubles on the defensive line were understandable. But without some help from outside, they could also be fatal, as their pass rush struggles to generate consistent pressure, while their run defense continues to buckle.
