Englewood, CO (Sports Network) - The Denver Broncos received a bit of
good news following a 40-10 drubbing at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks in
exhibition play Saturday.
Defensive end Derek Wolfe avoided serious injury after a head-first, first-
quarter collision caused him to be carried off the field, immobilized and
strapped to a stretcher then taken to a local hospital for evaluation.
The Broncos issued a release early Sunday morning, indicating that Wolfe "was
evaluated for a cervical spine injury and underwent several tests, including
X-ray, CT and MRI scans. All tests were negative, and he will accompany the
team on its flight back to Denver."
Wolfe is a second-year pro out of Cincinnati, who totaled 40 tackles and six
sacks in 16 games last season for the Broncos.
