Wes Welker returns with an enormous new helmet

(Mark J. Rebilas / USA Today)

Wes Welker will play in a game for the first time since suffering a concussion Dec. 8 and he’ll be easy to spot.

He’s the guy in the helmet that’s nearly as big as he is.

He’s also sporting a new mouth guard. Internet gagsters calling him “the Great Gazoo” aside, good for Welker to wear that thing.
