Denver Broncos dodge a bullet with Derek Wolfe injury

ENGLEWOOD-It was the type of injury scare that could have spoiled a season before it began.

Broncos defensive end Derek Wolfe was carted off the practice field at the team's Dove Valley headquarters Saturday morning with an apparent right leg injury. Wolfe was helped to his feet and to a cart that took him to the facility entrance.

It is always my hope when National Football League players exit in this fashion that is an ankle injury. "Great news. I was praying as soon as it happened that it was just a sprain or something like that and nothing serious".

Wolfe seemed to confirm the diagnosis of a sprain Saturday afternoon when he tweeted a picture of his puffy right ankle with the phrase, "Just a little swelling".

There have been other injuries on the defense the past couple months, as well. He missed some time with elbow and neck injuries.

The Broncos are already strapped for defensive line depth after losing reserve Billy Winn to a torn ACL on Thursday night in their preseason opener against the Chicago Bears. He missed all of last season with a knee injury suffered in training camp last season while going against Russell Okung.

Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post later reported that the injury is a sprain and that Wolfe will be ready for the home opener on September 11. The Broncos were practicing in full pads Saturday.

Wolfe, 27, was injured when he became tangled up with offensive tackle Menelik Watson in a team drill.

He is in the second year of a four-year contract that will pay him $6.05 million this year. Kerr and Crick are arguably the team's two best defensive ends behind Wolfe.
