Wolfe registered 1.5 tackles along with four tackles Sunday against the Colts.

EDGE Analysis

Wolfe came into the game with a neck injury, but he was just fine as he helped the Broncos harass Andrew Luck all afternoon. He had a great year in 2015 playing in Wade Phillips' defense, as he was in the top-10 in tackles among defensive linemen. He certainly has room to improve as part of an elite defense.

Wolfe (neck) is active for Sunday's game against the Colts.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Wolfe won't be forced to miss additional time due to the minor neck issue as he's set to play in the Week 2 matchup. Billy Winn could see additional reps at defensive end if Wolfe suffers any kind of setback throughout the game.

The Broncos released their injury report on Wednesday, and Wolfe (neck) was not listed.

EDGE Analysis

The 26-year-old had recorded two tackles before leaving Thursday's season opening win over the Panthers due to a neck injury. His absence from Wednesday's injury report appears to indicate the injury was minor. Barring any setbacks, Wolfe figures to be on track for Sunday's clash with the Colts.

Wolfe (ankle) did not practice on Thursday, Troy Renck of Denver 7 reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wolfe is dealing with an ankle sprain and seems unlikely to play in Saturday's preseason matchup with the 49ers. Darius Kilgo is taking reps with the first-team defense during Wolfe's absence. Look for an official update about 26-year-old's game status to come within the next day or so.

Wolfe was diagnosed with an "ankle sprain" following an MRI on Wednesday, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports. "It's nothing serious and if it was a regular season game I'd be playing," Wolfe said. "We'll see how I feel tomorrow."

EDGE Analysis

Wolfe was removed from Wednesday's practice session due to a left ankle injury, but ensuing tests have downplayed the severity. With a preseason game Saturday against the 49ers, the Broncos may exercise caution and avoid any risk with one of their defensive stalwarts. However, there doesn't appear to be any long-term concern with Wolfe's health.

Wolfe left practice Wednesday with what appeared to be a left ankle injury, Mike Klis of 9News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wolfe hurt the ankle while going through a team drill against the offensive line and then went on to limp off the field. Eventually, he was carted to the team's facilities, where he's expected to undergo further tests. The severity remains unclear, but it's a tough blow for the Broncos, who have already lost defensive end Vance Walker (knee) for the season. Second-round pick Adam Gotsis saw extended reps when Wolfe left the field and could be in line for additional snaps moving forward.

Wolfe signed a four-year contract extension with the Broncos on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Wolfe's new deal comes after he was suspended for this season's first four games, but came back and enjoyed the best campaign of his four-year career. To that point, Wolfe totaled 49 tackles and 5.5 sacks in 12 games played, emerging as a long-term option at defensive end along the way. With the ink drying on his new contract, Wolfe figures to enter Sunday's playoff game against the Steelers full of confidence.
