Many think he should call it a career, but it doesn't appear like he's going to. Not because he's stubborn and doesn't know when to quit--because his special helmet absorbed most of the blow.
Remember last season when he got a concussion against Tennessee in early December? Remember the special helmet he was sporting once he returned?
Not that there is such a thing as a good one, but it appears that he could very well be ready to go against the Indianapolis Colts in Week One.
I believe Wes Welker will play in season opener vs. Indy. It's 2 weeks away. His "concussion helmet" helped absorb D.J. Swearinger blow.

Having the time off before the season starts will do him a lot of good, but in light of his history it would not be surprising if the team gave him a little more time off to make sure he's healthy.
