"Great news, " Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib told Denver's 9News.
The vaunted Denver defense can not afford to absorb any more serious injury blows.
Safety T.J. Ward has not been active due to a hamstring injury. On the edges, Shaquil Barrett (hip) and Shane Ray (wrist) are both out through the preseason and possibly longer.
Wolfe, 27, was injured when he became tangled up with offensive tackle Menelik Watson in a team drill. Wolfe's injury comes less than 48 hours after defensive end Billy Winn suffered a season-ending knee injury against the Bears.
In 11 practices open to the public, a record average of 4,910 fans came to watch the Broncos. Twenty-five of those tackles and 2.5 sacks came during his senior season.
That performance earned him a four-year extension worth $36.7 million just before the Broncos' victory in Super Bowl 50 over the Carolina Panthers. He was set to rotate with newcomers Domata Peko and Zach Kerr, among others, on the Broncos' rebuilt D-line. "We're not sure how bad", coach Vance Joseph said.
