ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - Denver Broncos defensive end Derek Wolfe took to social media Saturday to say he "dodged a bullet" with a right ankle injury after he had been carted off the field during practice on Saturday. It appeared to be a right leg injury.

Wolfe was in a pile during a running play in a team drill early in practice - tackle Menelik Watson limped, flexing his own right leg following the play - and stayed down.

Wolfe also posted a picture of his swollen ankle after he had gone for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exam.

The top three from each of the two heats and next two fastest finishers from the remaining qualify for the final round. However, Gatlin's agent Renaldo Nehemiah, a former 110m hurdles world record holder, was scathing about Coe's remarks.

The Broncos are already strapped for defensive line depth after losing reserve Billy Winn to a torn ACL on Thursday night in their preseason opener against the Chicago Bears. Winn's injury created a path for Shebly Harris to make the team.

Wolfe was a second-round selection of the Broncos in the 2012 National Football League draft.

The 27-year-old University of Cincinnati product racked up 51 tackles and 5.5 sacks in 14 games during the 2016 campaign. Vance Walker remains available.

Broncos veteran safety T.J. Ward sits out Saturday morning's practice with an injury. Outside linebackers Shane Ray (wrist) and Shaquil Barrett (hip) aren't expected back until the start of the regular season or later. It is possible he could move back inside and the Broncos could add an outside linebacker. Nose tackle Kyle Peko (foot) is yet to return from the physically unable to perform list.
