Derek Wolfe Injury Updates

Broncos LB Josey Jewell is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. He returned to a limited practice Friday after missing the 1st 2 days with a hamstring injury that knocked him out of Week 3 a little early. We'd try not to use Jewell even if he's active Sunday. Denver also deemed S Kareem Jackson questionable after he missed the entire practice week with a hamstring issue. DE Derek Wolfe, meanwhile, is questionable with an ankle injury.

Broncos DE Derek Wolfe suffered a "really bad sprain" in his right ankle in Saturday's practice, according to ESPN's Josina Anderson. The injury also reportedly included a ligament tear. Wolfe still said it wasn't as bad as initially feared at that he hopes to be back to 100% by Week 1. We'll see if he gets there. At the least, it's another blow to a defense that will miss OLB Shane Ray into the regular season and lost DE Billy Winn to an ACL tear.

The Broncos have ruled S T.J. Ward (concussion) and LB Brandon Marshall (hamstring) out for Sunday night's game against the Chiefs. DE Derek Wolfe is also questionable with an illness. He also aggravated a neck injury in Sunday's loss to the Patriots. The team will re-evaluate him Saturday, according to The Denver Post. With most of the league playing that day and just 1 game following Denver-K.C., most IDP owners should probably opt for another D-line option.

Broncos DE Derek Wolfe left Sunday's game early with a neck injury and did not return. We'll see what his outlook is for next Sunday night's game at Kansas City.

Broncos DE Derek Wolfe left Sunday night's game against the Raiders with an elbow injury. He rode the cart to the locker room but was deemed just questionable to return. We'll keep an eye on the severity of the issue.

Broncos DE Derek Wolfe (neck) is active for today's game against the Colts. He entered the weekend questionable but saw limited practice time this week. There's some re-injury risk, but we'd use Wolfe as normal, given that he's not a top-shelf IDP lineman to begin with.

Broncos DE Derek Wolfe left the field with the help of trainers Wednesday after suffering an ankle injury. According to multiple reports, HC Gary Kubiak said he thought Wolfe merely rolled the ankle. Wolfe was reportedly bearing weight through both legs even as he left the field. This doesn't seem like it'll turn into anything serious, but we'll keep an eye on the status of this IDP sleeper. Denver already lost starting DE Vance Walker for the season to an ACL tear earlier this week.
