Derek Wolfe carted off practice field with ankle injury

Derek Wolfe carted off practice field with ankle injury

Wolfe was in a pile during a running play in a team drill early in practice - tackle Menelik Watson limped, flexing his own right leg following the play - and stayed down. Wolfe posted 5.5 sacks each of the past two years. That was our problem past year.

Wolfe still has to undergo and MRI, but a person close to the situation told ESPN's Josina Anderson that Wolfe simply suffered an ankle sprain and he is "very lucky". So, we need Derek Wolfe. He's our leader up front.

A festive crowd enjoying the final day of public practices grew quiet as Wolfe lay on the field for several minutes, cheering him when he sat up and hopped onto the cart.

Wolfe appeared unable to put any pressure on his right leg as he was helped by trainers from the cart into the team's facility. "I hope he's all right". If Wolfe is forced to miss an extended period, it would be another blow to a defense which lost DL Billy Winn for the season on Friday. He was replaced on the roster by rookie defensive lineman Nelson Adams of Mississippi State.

The Broncos have wrestled with some high-profile injuries so far in camp;running back Devontae Booker (left wrist) and linebacker Shane Ray (left wrist) will miss the entire preseason. "So, we still have an older guy in there that's played some ball", Gotsis said.

Winn collected 19 tackles and one fumble recovery in 16 games, including two starts, last season for the Broncos.
