DE Derek Wolfe returns to practice after stinger forces brief exit

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Defensive end Derek Wolfe removed his pads and left practice on Tuesday, but he later returned to participate in contact drills.

"He had a little small stinger, but he's fine," Head Coach Vance Joseph said after practice. "He came back out there. He's OK."

Trainers attended to Wolfe on the field following the injury before leading him back to the locker room. He returned to practice a short time later.

Joseph said he does not expect Wolfe to miss any more time with the injury.

"He should not," Joseph said. "He came back to practice, so he should be ready to go tomorrow."

Wolfe had season-ending neck surgery in 2017 and was placed on IR late in the year.

Other Tuesday injury updates:

· On the other side of the line of scrimmage, offensive tackle Garett Bolles was a full participant after leaving Monday morning's practice with a head injury.

"When you have these head injuries or any type of a head injury, [we're] always going to be on the safe side to kind of check him out," Joseph said. "He checked out fine. He's back at practice."

· Linebacker Brandon Marshall participated in 7-on-7 drills, but he sat out contact portions of Tuesday's practice.

"He's got a sore wrist, so he only worked in 7-on-7. Not in contact stuff. But he'll back tomorrow in the contact drills."

· Cornerback Tramaine Brock will miss about a week with a "medium" hamstring injury, Joseph said.

· Linebacker Josey Jewell should hopefully return to the practice field soon, Joseph said. The fourth-round draft pick has not practiced yet during training camp, but Joseph said "he's getting better."
