Broncos' Derek Wolfe: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Broncos placed Wolfe (elbow) on injured reserve Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Wolfe suffered a dislocated elbow during Sunday's win over the Chargers, the severity of which will cause him to miss the remainder of the season on injured reserve. In his stead, count on Dre'Mont Jones and Adam Gotsis to play expanded roles on defense.

Broncos' Derek Wolfe: Dislocated elbow against Chargers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolfe dislocated his elbow in Sunday's win over the Chargers, Rayn O'Halloran of the Denver Post reports.

While it's too early to speculate at this point, a dislocated elbow usually leads to a three- to six-week absence, which means it's possible Wolfe will miss the remainder of the season. Expect a more concrete timetable on his absence to be established in the coming days.

Broncos' Derek Wolfe: Leaves with elbow issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolfe exited Sunday's game against the Chargers with an elbow injury, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Wolfe put together a superb effort before departing, as he notched two sacks to reach seven on the season, setting a new career high. The Broncos are already without pass-rusher Von Miller (knee). Dre'Mont Jones and Adam Gotsis are both expected to see an uptick in snaps during Wolfe's absence.

Broncos' Derek Wolfe: Notches fifth sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolfe had five tackles (four solo) and a sack in Sunday's win over the Browns.

Wolfe led Denver's defensive lineman and played a season-high 53 defensive snaps Sunday. The 29-year-old went without a sack through the first five games games of the season, but he now has five sacks over the last four contests.

Broncos' Derek Wolfe: Drops QB twice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolfe registered three tackles (two solo), two sacks and three quarterback hits in Sunday's 15-13 win over the Broncos.

Wolfe already has more quarterback pressures through eight games (12) than the entire 2018 season (10), and it's finally turning into production with four sacks over the last three contests. The 29-year-old will look to keep it up against in Week 9 against Baker Mayfield, who has been sacked on average three times per game.

Broncos' Derek Wolfe: Full participant Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolfe (hip) practiced fully Wednesday, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.

Limited to begin the week of practice, Wolfe practiced without limitations Wednesday and appears set to take the field Thursday against the Chiefs. The defensive end is coming off a Week 6 performance that saw him collect his first two sacks of 2019.

Broncos' Derek Wolfe: Remains limited
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolfe (hip) was again limited at Tuesday's practice, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.

Wolfe popped up on Monday's injury report after playing 46 of a 70 defensive snaps in Sunday's victory over the Titans. The Broncos could just be exercising caution due to the short week, but his status will have to be monitored as the week progresses. Dre'Mont Jones would be in line for a bigger role should Wolfe ultimately be unable to go.

Broncos' Derek Wolfe: Surfaces on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolfe (hip) is listed as a limited participant in Monday's practice estimate, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.

This is a new injury, but Wolfe's status for Thursday's game against the Chiefs doesn't appear to be in jeopardy at this time. He managed to play 46 of 70 possible defensive snaps (66 percent) and record two sacks in this past Sunday's win over the Titans. Still, he'll need to get on the field when the Broncos host an actual practice this week.

Broncos' Derek Wolfe: Ready for action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolfe (ankle) is active for Sunday's game versus the Jaguars.

Wolfe was considered questionable for this contest after injuring his ankle in Week 3's game versus the Packers, but he has shaken off the issue. He'll be an important run-stopper in this contest against Leonard Fournette.

Broncos' Derek Wolfe: Labeled questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wole (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

Wolfe practiced in limited fashion throughout the week, and figures to be more on the probable side of his questionable designation. Still, confirmation on his status will not come until closer to game time. Dre'Mont Jones and DeMarcus Walker would be in line for bigger workloads should he ultimately sit out.

Broncos' Derek Wolfe: Limited Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolfe (ankle) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.

Wolfe's limited participation Thursday is an upgrade from his non-participation in Wednesday's practice. The 29-year-old sustained the injury last Sunday against Green Bay.

September 25, 2019 04:56 PM
Broncos' Derek Wolfe: Not practicing yet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolfe (ankle) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.

Wolfe had an MRI earlier in the week, and the results were better than the Broncos anticipated. Still, he's a DNP for the first practice of the week and is swimming against the current for Sunday's game versus the Jaguars.

Broncos' Derek Wolfe: Set for MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolfe (ankle) will have an MRI on Monday, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.

Wolfe was spotted in a walking boot after getting carted off the field during Sunday's loss to the Packers. The initial tests revealed no broken bones in his right ankle, but it sounds like Wolfe expects to miss at least one game. The MRI should reveal a more specific timeline.

Broncos' Derek Wolfe: Sporting boot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolfe was seen in a boot on his right foot following Sunday's game against Green Bay, Kyle Fredrickson of The Denver Post reports.

Wolfe suffered the injury in the second quarter and was subsequently carted off the field. X-rays on his injured ankle didn't show a break, and Wolfe hopes to only miss one game, per Troy Renck of Denver 7 News. An MRI could be coming on the ankle to specify the injury, but it's not clear. If Wolfe is forced to miss time, DeMarcus Walker and Dre'Mont Jones are the leading candidates to see increased snaps.

Broncos' Derek Wolfe: Carted off Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolfe left and won't return to Sunday's contest against the Packers due to an ankle injury, Kyle Fredrickson of The Denver Post reports.

Wolfe was carted off the field in the second quarter, which suggests he's dealing with serious injury. With the veteran sidelined, DeMarcus Walker and Dre'Mont Jones would be in line for an increase in reps. Expect the team to have an update on Wolfe's status following Sunday's game.

Broncos' Derek Wolfe: Continuing with Denver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Broncos' Derek Wolfe: Active Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

December 13, 2018 02:48 PM
Broncos' Derek Wolfe: Officially listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolfe (concussion) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Browns, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.

Wolfe cleared the league-mandated concussion protocol Thursday, so the expectation is that he'll be ready to go this weekend. If Wolfe were to sit out against the Browns, Zach Kerr would receive an increased workload along the defensive front.

December 11, 2018 04:16 PM
Broncos' Derek Wolfe: In concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Vance Joseph said Tuesday that Wolfe is in the league-mandated concussion protocol, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.

Wolfe appears to have sustained a head injury during Sunday's 20-14 loss to the 49ers. If the starting defensive end is unable to suit up against the Browns on Saturday, expect Zach Kerr to benefit from an uptick in snaps.

Broncos' Derek Wolfe: Clear for Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
