WR Wes Welker was cleared to fly with the Broncos for their final preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys.
Welker has not yet been medically cleared from his concussion to engage in contact, so he won't play in the game Thursday night at AT&T Stadium. Then again, none of the Broncos' other projected opening-day starters will play against the Cowboys.
The slot receiver's recovery, though, is encouraging. He was seen joining the Broncos' offense in the team's weightlifting and exercise facility Tuesday and was able to travel Wednesday.
