Wolfe has ankle injury Broncos do not believe to be serious

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.

Though he was carted off the field and taken to the trainer's room without being able to put weight on his injured leg, the Broncos do not deem the ankle injury as something serious. Doesn't believe will be serious. He also was sent for an MRI exam following practice.

It hurts the Broncos on multiple levels.

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

Wolfe has posted 5.5 sacks in each of the previous two seasons, respectively. Wolfe's injury comes less than 48 hours after defensive end Billy Winn suffered a season-ending knee injury against the Bears. He served as a key rotational player.

In 11 practices open to the public, a record average of 4,910 fans came to watch the Broncos. If Wolfe is lost for significant time, the Broncos might have to find a veteran replacement. Safety T.J. Ward has missed the last week with a hamstring injury. Outside linebackers Shane Ray (wrist) and Shaquil Barrett (hip) aren't expected back until the start of the regular season or later.

Until Wolfe is completely healthy, the Broncos will be down to Jared Crick, Zach Kerr, Adam Gotsis, Domata Peko, Tyrique Jarrett, Shakir Soto and Shelby Harris on the defensive line. Losing Wolfe, their best defensive lineman, would have struck a major blow to a defense looking to improve significantly against the run.
