Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker won't play this Sunday, Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reported.

Welker suffered a concussion in the Broncos' Dec. 8 game against the Tennessee Titans, and he hasn't played since. He has yet to be cleared medically to play.

The Broncos are traveling to take on the Houston Texans on Sunday. If they win their final two games, they will be guaranteed home-field advantage throughout the AFC Playoffs, as well as a first-round bye.

The 32-year-old Welker signed a two-year deal with the Broncos last offseason. So far this year, he has 73 receptions for 778 yards and 10 touchdowns.
