Wolfe also posted a picture of his swollen ankle after he had gone for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exam.

Denver Broncos defensive tackle Adam Gotsis. Winn's injury created a path for Shebly Harris to make the team.
In 11 practices open to the public, a record average of 4,910 fans came to watch the Broncos. He combined for 51 tackles last season with 5.5 sacks.
He is in the second year of a four-year contract that will pay him $6.05 million this year.

With Kyle Peko still recovering from a broken foot and Billy Winn done for the year with a torn ACL, the Broncos' defense line is already thin. Losing Wolfe, their best defensive lineman, would have struck a major blow to a defense looking to improve significantly against the run.
