Broncos Placing DE Derek Wolfe On Injured Reserve


According to Ian Rapoport, the Broncos will place DE Derek Wolfe on injured reserve. 

Wolfe dislocated his elbow during Sunday’s game against the Chargers and will miss the final four games of the 2019 season. 

Wolfe is in the final year of his contract and was the subject of trade rumors earlier this season, so this might be the last we see of him in Broncos jersey. 

Wolfe, 29, is a former second-round pick of the Broncos back in 2012. He’s entering the final year of his four-year, $36.7 million contract that included $17.5 million guaranteed and stands to make a base salary of $8 million for the 2019 season.

In 2019, Wolfe appeared in 12 games for the Broncos and recorded 34 total tackles, seven sacks, one forced fumble and one pass defense. He’s rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 58 interior defender out of 117 qualifying players.
