Broncos’ Prater Apologizes for Suspension

Broncos’ Prater Apologizes for Suspension

National Football League(ENGLEWOOD, Colo.) — One day after being suspended by the NFL for violating it’s substance abuse policy, Denver Broncos kicker Matt Prater apologized to his friends, teammates, and fans. 
“I’m definitely going to make some changes in my life,” Prater said following Monday’s practice. “Not drink at all or risk doing anything stupid like that [and] keep myself out of certain situations like not go to places where people are drinking.”
“Now I’m going to dedicate myself to working out and getting stronger in the time I have off,” he continued. “I’ll come in here and be here five days a week hitting the weights and I’ll have to kick at a high school field.”
The violation, which is alcohol-related, could have earned Prater a year-long suspension, but it was reduced to just four games. Because of a bye week in Week 4 for Denver, Prater will not be able to compete until a Week 6 matchup with the New York Jets on October 12.
Prater will be allowed to attend team functions and use the weight room, but cannot be on the field or sidelines with the team during his suspension.

Welker Leaves Game with Concussion

Welker Leaves Game with Concussion

Hyoung Chang/Denver Post(DENVER) — Wes Welker missed three games during the 2013 season after suffering a pair of concussions. On Saturday night, the Broncos wide receiver left the game when he sustained another one following a hit from Houston Texans safety D.J. Swearinger.
“It was determined it was a concussion,” said Denver head coach John Fox. “He’ll go through the protocol. The biggest thing on him is, of course, player safety.”
The hit came late in the second half as the Broncos were driving. Welker caught an 11-yard pass from Peyton Manning on the previous play, and as Manning went back to him on the next snap, Welker went into a slide and Swearinger made the tackle.
Replays showed that as the wideout slid, Swearinger led with his shoulder and forearm, hitting Welker in the head. The safety was assessed a personal foul as Welker got up and walked to the sideline before entering the locker room.
There is no timetable for Welker to return to game action. Denver went on to lose 18-17 to the Texans.
