The Denver Broncos had a scare with left defensive end Derek Wolfe.
Wolfe was taken off the field in Seattle in an ambulance in the first quarter of Saturday night’s game. It was first thought that he had a cervical spine injury, but he had movement in all of his extremities.
If he had that injury, it would have immediately ended his playing career. But, he has passed a battery of test at a local hospital in Seattle.
He could flight back to Denver with the team. And with the good news, there’s still a chance that he could join the Broncos next Saturday in their third preseason game against the St. Louis Rams.
There is no doubt that Wolfe and the Broncos have dodged a major bullet by this latest news. The Broncos, who have a weakness at pass rusher this season, are hoping that Wolfe could return sooner rather than later.
Wolfe is entering his second year in the NFL, both with the Broncos. He had 40 tackles and 6 sacks in 16 games.
