The return of Eddie Royal from injury hurt Ladarius Green (one target, zero grabs), so Antonio Gates (six) has returned to relative target safety for now.
Another beneficiary from Welker's injury could be Jacob Tamme, who saw five passes come his way and played in the slot almost exclusively after the wideout went down.
