Derek Wolfe carted out of practice with apparent serious leg injury

Broncos veteran safety T.J. Ward sits out Saturday morning’s practice with an injury

The team practicing in full pads just over 36 hours after their first pre-season game.

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

Defensive end Derek Wolfe had to be carted off the practice field Saturday after suffering what appeared to be a serious injury to either his right knee or ankle. Wolfe left the field in a cart with his right leg straight out as he leaned back.

Wolfe was unable to put any weight on his right side, and there were fears that he may be the latest Denver defensive lineman to suffer a season-ending type of injury.

Wolfe has posted 5.5 sacks in each of the previous two seasons, respectively. He bulked up over the summer, saying he added 20 pounds of muscle because "I was like 285 past year and it was a little too light holding the point". He played in 2014 and 2015 with the Oakland Raiders. Vance Walker remains available. Wolfe, on the other hand, isn't expected to miss the start of the season.

Broncos veteran safety T.J. Ward sits out Saturday morning's practice with an injury. It is possible he could move back inside and the Broncos could add an outside linebacker. Kerr and Crick are arguably the team's two best defensive ends behind Wolfe.

With Kyle Peko still recovering from a broken foot and Billy Winn done for the year with a torn ACL, the Broncos' defense line is already thin.

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