Derek Wolfe carted out of practice with apparent serious leg injury

Derek Wolfe was carted off the Denver Broncos' practice field on Saturday with a right leg injury. "Great news. I was praying as soon as it happened that it was just a sprain or something like that and nothing serious".

Asked about the severity of the injury, Joseph then added: "We're not sure about that, but the first look it wasn't serious, but we'll know more [Sunday]". "Hopefully it's nothing serious and it's just a sprain".

The Broncos' biggest bugaboo last season was a porous D-line - they were 28th in the league against the run, No. 1 against the pass - and that disparity defanged their strengths: Von Miller wrecking game plans with Talib and Chris Harris Jr. shutting down receivers. In last year's Draft, the Buccaneers traded up in the second round to take Aguayo, who went 198-for-198 in extra point attempts and 69-for-78 in field goal tries during his stint at Florida State.

Wolfe appeared unable to put any pressure on his right leg as he was helped by trainers from the cart into the team's facility.

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. Nose tackle Billy Winn suffered a season-ending ACL tear Thursday in the team's preseason opener against the Bears. "So, we still have an older guy in there that's played some ball", Gotsis said. However, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network Insider reported that Wolfe could only miss some practice time to recover.
