There’s no indication when the Broncos will get back a much-needed pass rusher.
Updated playoff bracket
SB Nation’s beautiful playoff app has you covered with full recaps and an updated bracket after wild card weekend.
Wolfe has not played since Nov. 29 when the second-year defensive end suffered a seizure-like episode. Mike Klis of The Denver Post reports there’s still no indication when Wolfe will be able to return to action following a series of illnesses.
NFL rules mandate a player must practice for two full weeks in order to be eligible to play in a game. While Wolfe has not had a relapse of his episode, he has been kept out of practice due to a flu one day after he made his practice debut on Christmas day.
Wolfe was on pace for a career high in sacks before being forced out. The Broncos have lacked a signature pass rusher with Von Miller suffering a season-ending injury, while linebacker Shaun Phillips helped fill the void along with defensive end Robert Ayers.
