It was a tough weekend for the Denver Broncos defensive lineman, but the good news is Derek Wolfe may be ready to return to the field a lot sooner than anyone could have imagined after watching him lay on the ground motionless after a play vs. the Seattle Seahawks Saturday night. After the play was over and Wolfe was unresponsive on the field, trainers and doctors rushed out to treat him, then placed him on a stretcher and carried off the field in an ambulance.

Yesterday, Wolfe took to Twitter to let everyone know he was doing better and believes he’ll be back on the football filed soon:

As for cornerback Champ Bailey, an initial MRI revealed no torn ligaments in Bailey’s left foot, but he still will likely miss the next few weeks, and his status for the opener probably won’t be known until closer to the end of the preseason.

Newly-signed Pro Bowl receiver Wes Welker suffered a “mild right ankle sprain“, and he’ll likely be back for the regular-season opener in two weeks.
