Denver Broncos DE Derek Wolfe carted off field with right ankle injury

Denver Broncos DE Derek Wolfe carted off field with right ankle injury

The Broncos will practice twice with the 49ers this week in advance of their exhibition game on Saturday, so second-year end Adam Gotsis will move up and take Wolfe's workload with the front-line defenders.

Wolfe suffered the injury when he became tangled up with offensive tackle Menelik Watson.

Derek Wolfe left Saturday's practice early after suffering an ankle injury, but Head Coach Vance Joseph later said the injury did not initally appear "that bad".

Wolfe was clearly distraught as he was getting carted off the field. Wolfe posted 5.5 sacks each of the past two years.

He was unable to put weight on his injured leg when he got off the cart to enter the team's facilities. After a season marred by a painful elbow injury, Wolfe added bulk in the offseason, beefing up 20 pounds, he said.




The injury occurred early in the team's 11-on-11 drill. He played in 2014 and 2015 with the Oakland Raiders.

Fortunately for the Broncos, it looks like Wolfe won't miss an extended period of time, although that has yet to be confirmed. 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.

Jared Crick is a returning starter at the other defensive end position.

The Broncos have already had their defensive line depth tested in training camp.

Nose tackle Kyle Peko is now tending to a broken foot.
