The Broncos have officially exercised the 2019 option on Wolfe's contract, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. Denver could have saved over $8 million in space by letting him walk, but the Broncos will instead keep Wolfe around as the 29-year-old enters the last year of his contract. He's more valuable in real life than fantasy, though, considering Wolfe has accrued just 74 tackles and 3.5 sacks on 1,169 defensive snaps over the past two seasons.
Wolfe (concussion) is active for Saturday's game against the Browns. The expectation was that Wolfe would be healthy to play, and the team confirmed it Saturday when he was not listed on the inactive list. Wolfe has just 1.5 sacks through 13 games this season but could have more opportunities with the likes of Shaquil Barrett (hip) and Shane Ray (coach's decision) sidelined.
Wolfe (ribs) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game at San Francisco, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports. Wolfe sustained a small cartilage tear in his ribs during last Sunday's win over the Bengals, but he's apparently healthy enough to avoid the questionable tag. It remains to be seen if the 28-year-old faces any limitations from the injury, but he should take up his usual starting spot at defensive end against the 49ers.
Wolfe said following Sunday's game against the Bengals that he didn't suffer any broken ribs, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports. Wolfe left Sunday's game due to the injury and ultimately was ruled out for the remainder of the game. The fact that Wolfe didn't suffer any breaks in his ribs is a positive sign for his Week 14 availability. Expect next week's practice report to give a clearer indication as to whether Wolfe can suit up against the 49ers in Week 14.
Wolfe is ruled out to return to Sunday's game against the Bengals, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports. Wolfe was initially listed as questionable to return Week 13 but will ultimately remain sidelined for the rest of Sunday's tilt against the Bengals.
