Wes Welker was back out on the practice field yesterday for the first time since suffering a concussion in Sunday’s game against the Chiefs. The Broncos receiver and former Patriot practiced on a “limited” basis, but hopes to be ready for Sunday night’s showdown with his former team. “That’s what I’m hoping for,” Welker told reporters in Denver. “Just listen to what the doctors say and go from there.” The date for Welker’s return to New England has long been circled on the calendar. He certainly doesn’t want to miss the game. “(I’m) definitely excited. It’s a big game, a big matchup,” he said. “Great environment and everything else. I really look forward to it.” How strange will it be, walking into Gillette as a visitor? “Since Miami, yeah, I’m sure it will be, a little bit,” he said. “But it’s another game, another field — it’s still the same size and everything else. I’m familiar with it, so that’s an advantage for sure.” Welker said he’s been meeting with independent doctors, going through tests in hopes of getting the thumbs up to play Sunday. He said everything went well in practice.
