Denver Broncos head coach John Fox defends Wes Welker amid criticism from Bill Belichick after his hit caused an injury to Aqib Talib in the AFC championship game.

Denver Broncos head coach John Fox has defended wide receiver Wes Welker amid criticism from New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick.

The Patriots head coach slammed the 32-year-old for his hit on cornerback Aqib Talib which knocked him out of the AFC championship, as the Broncos advanced to the Super Bowl with a 26-16 win.

"I haven't even seen the tape and I haven't seen his comment, so I don't feel that I can comment on that, other than that I know that Wes Welker is a great player, high integrity," Fox told the Denver Post.

"I can say that we were not doing anything with intent. That's the only comment I have."

Welker was with the Patriots for six seasons before joining the Broncos in 2013.
