Wolfe will not have surgery to repair the hairline fracture in his right elbow and will be sidelined for no longer than a month, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wolfe suffered the injury during the third quarter of Sunday night's loss to the Raiders. Although his upcoming absence represents a tough blow to the Broncos' defensive front, the fact that Wolfe won't need surgery at least limits the time he'll be sidelined. With him out, rookie second-rounder Adam Gotsis and Billy Winn should see more playing time at defensive end.

EDGE Analysis

Wolfe was forced to exit during the third quarter and was not allowed to return after being examined by the Broncos' medical staff. While he's scheduled to have further tests done Monday, it appears Wolfe is destined to be ruled out for some time, likely leaving Denver without one of its best defensive linemen.

Wolfe racked up six tackles and 2.5 sacks in Sunday's win over Tampa Bay.

EDGE Analysis

Wolfe had one of the most disruptive games of his career on Sunday, his 2.5 sacks establishing a career high. His career mark for a season of six might be next. Now the main man on the defensive line with Malik Jackson gone, Wolfe already has four sacks in the first four games of 2016.

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.
