Denver Broncos receiver Wes Welker could be fit for Sunday's clash against New England Patriots after returning to practice four days after suffering a concussion.

The 32-year-old sustained the injury in the second half of last weekend's 27-20 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs, but has made a swift recovery to put himself in contention to start the team's next fixture.

Patriots' quarterback Tom Brady is in no doubt that Welker will be cleared by an independent doctor prior to kick-off.

"I've been around [Welker] long enough to know what he's all about," Brady told reporters. "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."

Welker spent five years with the Patriots before joining the Broncos earlier this year.

Earlier in his career he played for Miami Dolphins, while he made his professional debut with the San Diego Chargers in 2004.
