Originally written August 28, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
Denver Broncos defensive end Derek Wolfe has been out the last two weeks after suffering a neck injury in a preseason game.  Wolfe was expected to be out longer, but it appears he will be ready to go by week one as long as there is no set backs. “Absolutely, there is no question that I’ll [play], as long as nothing happens in practice, knock on wood, Don’t want to get hurt in practice but as long as I don’t re-injure it I should be fine.” This is good news for the Broncos defense who won't have Elvis Dumervil, Von Miller and possibly Champ Bailey when the regular season starts.  It has been a rough offseason for the Broncos defense so far, but it Wolfe is able to play week one it should give their defense a big boost. Not many thought Wolfe would be ready to go by week one, including himself.  Wolfe left the game on an ambulance so there was a high level of concern, but it has been getting better each day according to Wolfe. ”I thought I was going to be out a little bit longer but I started feeling better and every day it was getting better.”  Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?
