Derek Wolfe out of hospital and back with Broncos

Published Add your comment

Denver Broncos defensive end Derek Wolfe was discharged from hospital on Monday, having been admitted after experiencing seizure-like symptoms when the team's bus pulled into the airport, bound for Kansas City on Friday, reports

The 23-year-old missed Sunday's 35-28 win over the Kansas City Chiefs in Missouri, and is also expected to sit out of the upcoming clash against the Tennessee Titans next weekend as he continues his recovery.

Early fears that Wolfe had suffered a stroke have been allayed, but after being treated by the Colorado-based franchise's medical staff he was transported by ambulance to hospital, where he spent a period of three days.

Broncos coach John Fox is pleased that the second-year defensive lineman appears to be out of the woods and on his way to making a full recovery, but stressed that he will not be rushed back into action until he is deemed 100 per cent fit.

"Right now we're not thinking about his availability or any of that stuff," he was quoted by The Denver Post. "We're just concerned about his health, and medical people are working through that as we speak."
