Derek Wolfe “dodged a bullet” with sprained ankle

AP

Broncos defensive lineman Derek Wolfe was carted off the field at practice on Saturday, leading to fears of a serious injury that would keep a key part of the Denver defense off the field for an extended period of time.

Wolfe will be out for a bit, but the diagnosis didn’t fulfill the worst-case scenario. Wolfe tweeted a picture of his swollen right ankle later in the day and said that the injury wasn’t as severe as it could have been.

Wolfe told Josina Anderson of ESPN that he hopes to be 100 percent for Week One with what he called a “really bad sprain.”

The Broncos lost defensive lineman Billy Winn for the season to a torn ACL this week. The defense is also without linebacker Shane Ray, linebacker Shaquil Barrett and defensive tackle Kyle Peko at the moment.

    I’m a Pats fan but the traction you trolls are trying to give a year and a half old incident that was reviewed and dismissed by the league is getting pretty annoying. Wolfe was hit in the head with a bottle, that’s more than enough provocation to justify his response.

  2. Sprained ankles can be worse than a broken ankle. He will not be right the entire year. A DL has a lot of torque on the ankle on every play, fighting 300lb+ offensive lineman. If it was very swollen, it is a tear in the ligaments. Not a sigh of relief if I’m a Bronco fan.
