Mathews: "My mindset is I'm playing"
Monday, January 6, 2014, 11:35am
An ankle injury that's slowed him the past two weeks could be played on for so long. He was out most of the second half.
“My mindset is I'm playing (against Denver),” said Mathews, who praised the work of the team's running backs. “We keep fighting. Coach (Mike) McCoy says it all the time. It's the next man up. We're all ready.”
It's interesting that Mathews just didn't say "I'm playing," since that's what most overly optimistic players would say at this point in the season. We'll watch his practice activity, but he may not be able to go against the Broncos.
Wes Welker cleared for playoffs
Thursday, January 2, 2014, 4:16pm
There was a time as Wes Welker was recovering from his second concussion that he felt he was ready to play.
The Broncos' medical team held the star slot receiver out a while longer, anyway, and in retrospect he's glad for it.
"It took a little bit of time," Welker said Thursday in his first interview since his second concussion in a three-week period on Dec. 8. "Even when I felt I was 100 percent, looking back you weren't 100 percent. It's always a tricky injury and just trying to manage it and everything else, but the doctors and trainers did a great job of just doing the things necessary to get me back out on the field."
He was cleared for full football activities this week, and Welker will play in the Broncos' second-round AFC playoff game on Jan. 12 at Sports Authority Field at Mile High against Indianapolis, Kansas City or San Diego.

Vikings let go of Leslie Frazier
Monday, December 30, 2013, 12:49pm
The Minnesota Vikings fired coach Leslie Frazier on Monday morning, one year after they made the playoffs and one day after they finished a 5-10-1 season.
After going 10-6 in 2012, the Vikings regressed this year, done in by a leaky defense and an inability to find stability at quarterback. Frazier finished 21-33-1 in three-plus seasons.
