HC Vance Joseph updates Derek Wolfe's injury status

Posted Aug 12, 2017

The Broncos' defensive end suffered an ankle injury during Saturday's practice.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — 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."

Joseph said Wolfe would undergo an MRI early Saturday afternoon and that the team would know more Sunday.

“It’s an ankle injury," Joseph said. "We’re not sure how bad. We’re kind of assuming it’s not that bad.”

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

Both players went down, and Watson eventually stood up under his own power. Wolfe was helped to his feet and to a cart that took him to the facility entrance.

Joseph said he did not see the play occur.

After practice, both Chris Harris Jr. and Aqib Talib voiced relief that Wolfe’s injury did not appear serious.

“Great news, man,” Talib said. “Great news. I was praying as soon as it happened that it was just a sprain or something like that and nothing serious. Hopefully it’s nothing serious and it’s just a sprain.”

Added Harris: “Good. We’ve got to be able to stop the run. That was our problem last year, and teams are going to check us. They’re going to check to see if we stopped that and come out and try to run goal-line offense, run the ball and pound us until we stop it. We need Derek Wolfe. He’s our best run defender. He’s our leader up front, so you’ve got to have a guy like him to be able to anchor us.”
