Denver Broncos defensive end Derek Wolfe is currently being treated at a Denver hospital after becoming ill on the team’s bus to Denver International Airport on Friday. After being initially listed as questionable for Sunday’s contest against the Kansas City Chiefs, the team hs now downgraded him to out for the critical AFC West matchup:

And this statement was released by the team:

"“After the club’s medical staff examined him, he was taken to the hospital by ambulance for testing and observation.“At this time, Wolfe is continuing to be evaluated by doctors to determine the cause of his symptoms.”"

After registering six sacks and 40 tackles as a rookie, Wolfe has four sacks and 16 tackles with five more regular-season games to play.

In their two previous games, the Broncos lost safety Rahim Moore and defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson to season-ending injuries. Moore has a chance to return in the playoffs from his lower leg blood-flow condition.

There’s also a good chance starting cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie won’t play because of a shoulder injury.

Rodgers- Cromartie returned to practice Thursday. He missed the second half and overtime period at New England because of a bruised shoulder he suffered while diving for Tom Brady’s underthrown Hail Mary pass that ended the first half.
