It looks like even if Wes Welker didn’t get a concussion, he’s still going to miss some games.
According to multiple sources, it appears that the Denver Broncos wide receiver has tested positive for amphetamines and will be suspended at least four games by the NFL. The twist is that Welker didn’t test positive this week or relatively soon, rather back in May according to Albert Breer:
Per two sources, Wes Welker's positive test came in May.

And if Welker did indeed get nailed in May for popping something, then isn’t it an interesting coincidence that this is also when he was at the Kentucky Derby handing out Benjamins. Some people are now even saying that Welker tested positive because he took the drug Molly, which is also known as E.
Source: Welker took Molly at the Kentucky Derby. It had been cut with amphetamines. Same situation as Orlando Scandrick.

Welker released a statement today saying he was “as shocked as everyone at today’s news” and that he “NEVER knowingly take a substance to gain a competitive advantage in any way.”
Well, if Welker did take the drug Molly in Kentucky, then yes, I believe he didn’t take the drug to gain a competitive edge in the game.
Last time I checked, I didn’t see how sucking on a lollipop and twirling glow sticks helped a player catch passes over the middle.
