Derek Wolfe injury: Broncos DL out of hospital


The Broncos defensive lineman is recovering from seizure-like symptoms.

Denver Broncos defensive lineman Derek Wolfe has been released from the hospital after spending the weekend there after sustained seizure-like symptoms, according to

Wolfe was hospitalized at the end of last week before the Broncos boarded their team plane to go play the Kansas City Chiefs. The former University of Cincinnati star is not likely to play this week against the Tennessee Titans. Beyond that, it is unclear when or if Wolfe will return this season.

Head coach John Fox gave an update on Wolfe and what to expect going forward, per the article:

"Right now we're not thinking about his availability or any of that stuff," John Fox told reporters Monday, per The Denver Post. "We're just concerned about his health, and medical people are working through that as we speak."

Denver has taken some hits recently along the defensive front, with Wolfe suffering his issues and Kevin Vickerson being placed on injured reserve with a dislocated hip. Without Wolfe, the Broncos gave up 159 rushing yards to the Chiefs, but still managed to win 35-28 at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday.
