ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) – Derek Wolfe practiced with the Denver Broncos on Tuesday for the first time since his arms and legs went numb following a frightening hit in a preseason game at Seattle 10 days earlier.

Showing his neck was fine, Wolfe swiveled his head from side to side on the podium.

That was a far cry from the night he was strapped to a backboard and taken off the field in an ambulance amid fears he had a cervical spine injury that would keep him off the football field and maybe off his feet forever.

The second-year defensive end said he won’t play in the Broncos’ preseason finale Thursday night.

Barring a setback, he plans to be in the lineup when Denver opens the regular season Sept. 5 against Baltimore.
