Wolfe, 27, was injured when he became tangled up with offensive tackle Menelik Watson in a team drill. After a season marred by a painful elbow injury, Wolfe added bulk in the offseason, beefing up 20 pounds, he said.

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

"Great news, " Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib told Denver's 9News. "I was praying as soon it happened that it was just a sprain or something like that and nothing serious".

The vaunted Denver defense can not afford to absorb any more serious injury blows.

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.

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.

"It's an ankle injury, we're not sure how bad", Broncos coach Vance Joseph said immediately following practice.

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.
