New England Patriots star Tom Brady believes Denver Broncos ace Wes Welker will be fit in time to take on his side on Sunday, reports cbssports.
Welker, who used to star for the Patriots, suffered concussion as the Broncos beat the Kansas City Chiefs this past weekend meaning he's a major doubt for Sunday's clash.
Speaking on the WEEI's Dennis and Callahan Show, Brady said: "I've been around [Welker] long enough to know what he's all about," Brady said Wednesday. "He loves playing football, and if there's a chance for him to play, especially coming back here, he's definitely going to be out there. I've got no question about that."
Brady has revealed that he hasn't spoke with Welker over his fitness but is sure he will come up against the wide receiver on Sunday.
Brady continued by saying: "No, no he didn't do that. But it would take an awful lot for him to miss the game."
However, Welker must overcome the NFL concussion protocols in order to get the go ahead to play against his former side.
Welker will be desperate to play against his former team as the Broncos look to continue their winning run and stay top of the AFC Western Division. The Broncos have won their last three and will be hoping to make it four in a row against the Patriots.
