Derek Wolfe injured on final day of Broncos Training Camp

Scott Winters  Icon Sportswire

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

Wolfe was in a pile during a running play in a team drill early in practice - tackle Menelik Watson limped, flexing his own right leg following the play - and stayed down.

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 was clearly distraught as he was getting carted off the field.

Wolfe could not put any weight on the leg as he was helped inside the Broncos' complex.

Sammy Watkins Traded To Rams; Bills Acquire Jordan Matthews In Separate Trade
It could look something like the Tennessee Titans of last season, though similar efficiency is certainly not guaranteed. It's hard to imagine the Bills think swapping Watkins and Darby for Matthews and Gaines will be an upgrade for 2017.

The Broncos have wrestled with some high-profile injuries so far in camp;running back Devontae Booker (left wrist) and linebacker Shane Ray (left wrist) will miss the entire preseason.

Mike Klis of 9News Denver has since confirmed that Wolfe suffered an injury to his right ankle.

Wolfe, a sixth-year pro, appears primed for a bounce-back season after dealing with a sore neck much of last year and missing two games. After a season marred by a painful elbow injury, Wolfe added bulk in the offseason, beefing up 20 pounds, he said.

Safety T.J. Ward has not been active due to a hamstring injury.

Denver's defensive line depth began shrinking during OTAs. Jared Crick starts opposite of Wolfe at defensive end. Kyle Peko broke his foot, and has not yet returned to practice.
