Keenan Allen (shoulder) practicing today, as expected.
Allen appears to be good to go for Thursday night against the Broncos, who rank 31st in allowing fantasy points to WRs. Allen should be a good play when our rankings come out Wednesday.

Broncos WR Wes Weller is not practicing today.
It really looks like it could be tough for Welker to play on a short week this Thursday against the Chargers.

Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen exited the game Sunday with a first-quarter shoulder sprain suffered while shielding himelf from collision. Despite the interruption, he still padded his résumé for NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, totaling three catches for 59 yards and two touchdowns in a 37-14 win.
It was the first multi-touchdown game of his career.
After going to the locker room for further evaluation, Allen received a shot and returned in the second quarter. In his first drive back, he caught a 4-yard touchdown on a corner route against blown coverage. Allen looks like he'll be a go next week against the Broncos on a short week. After that, in Week 16, he gets the Raiders - two pretty favorable matchups in the future.
Wes Welker suffers another concussion

Welker took a hit to the head on a play across the middle late in the second quarter. His neck was bent awkwardly on the play.
It's his second concussion with Denver, and the chances of Welker coming back for Week 15 could be pretty slim as the Broncos have a Thursday night game against the Chargers. The short week really hurts owners. Of course, if Welker is out, Eric Decker could see more targets and Andre Caldwell becomes a potential, sneaky play.
Julius Thomas active for Broncos

Julius Thomas is active as expected.
Beat: Stevan Ridley expected to be active Week 14

While it's not known what kind of role he will be given, barring an overnight change, it is expected that Stevan Ridley will be active for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, according to a source.
The New England Patriots running back has been shrouded in uncertainty since fumbling during a Week 11 win over the Denver Broncos, his fourth fumble of the year and third in three games. Ridley was benched for the remainder of the contest and made inactive for last week's win over the Houston Texans.
One would think Ridley won't be a fantasy factor against the Browns, but you just never know with New England's running game. Ridley is obviously a huge risk in Week 14, but depending on what we learn from his role, he could end up having value after this week.
