Denver Broncos receiver Wes Welker has been cleared to play after missing four weeks of the regular season with a concussion, coach John Fox confirmed on Monday.

The 32-year-old sustained the injury, which kept him out of the Broncos' final three games, in the win over Tennessee on December 8.

However, Fox confirmed that Welker will be available for the play-offs, which the Broncos begin on January 12, telling reporters: "He has been cleared to play."

Welker suffered an earlier concussion against Kansas City on November 17, but did not miss any games.

The former New England Patriots star set a career high with 10 touchdown catches in his first season with Denver, while he also caught 73 passes for 778 yards.

Denver Broncos, meanwhile, finished top of the AFC Western Division standings, winning 13 of their 16 fixtures.
