Broncos Wolfe on injury: I "dodged a bullet"

From ESPN - August 12, 2017

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Denver Broncos defensive end Derek Wolfe took to social media Saturday to say he "dodged a bullet'' with a right ankle injury after he had been carted off the field during practice on Saturday.

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. Trainers helped Wolfe onto a cart, and he was taken to the locker room.

Wolfe later took to Twitter to express his relief the injury was not as serious as it initially appeared when trainers helped him into the Broncos' complex as he could not put weight on his right leg.

Wolfe also posted a picture of his swollen ankle after he had gone for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exam. In a text to ESPN's Josina Anderson Wolfe said the injury was a sprain and that he would be ready for the Sept. 11 regular-season opener against the San Diego Chargers.
