Derek Wolfe Carted Off Field With Ankle Injury

Aug 12, 2017 5:28 PM

Derek Wolfe was carted off the Denver Broncos' practice field on Saturday with a right leg injury.

Wolfe was injured while in a pile on a running play.

"It's an ankle injury, we're not sure how bad," Vance Joseph said immediately following practice.

Wolfe was being sent for an MRI following practice, and the Broncos hope to have a potential timetable for a return to practice if the exam doesn't reveal more than the medical staff saw in the preliminary look.

Ryan Clady Announces Retirement From NFL

Aug 1, 2017 1:45 PM

Ryan Clady has announced his retirement from the NFL.

Clady, 30, became a free agent when the New York Jets declined to pay him a $1 million roster bonus due in February.

"Despite having several teams who are currently interested in signing me, I have made a very difficult decision to retire from my NFL playing career," Clady said in his post. "I have deliberated on this decision thoroughly until now because I wanted to see if the beginning of NFL training camps would inspire the passion that I need to perform at the standards that I established for myself during my 9-year NFL career.

"I am excited about what life holds for me going forward."

Emmanuel Sanders: Broncos Throwing More Under Mike McCoy

Jul 11, 2017 4:17 PM

The Denver Broncos plan to throw the football more under offensive coordinator Mike McCoy's new system.

"We've got this new offense with Mike McCoy," Emmanuel Sanders said. "We're going to be throwing the ball around so my conditioning has to be up and I've been working on that."

Sanders added that it doesn't matter who is throwing passes -- Paxton Lynch or Trevor Siemian.

"Both of those guys throw catchable passes," Sanders told KUSA-TV. "When it comes to the deep ball, Paxton loves to throw the deep ball. Big, strong arm. Trevor, he loves to throw the out routes, the in routes. He's a checkdown, all-around type guy."

Demaryius Thomas: I've Got A Couple Good Years Left

Jul 10, 2017 8:50 AM

Demaryius Thomas is 30 and has posted five straight 1,000-yard-plus seasons.

Thomas dealt with a hip problem last season and believes he has more good football left.

"I got longer than 30 [years]," Thomas said. "I think I've got a couple good years [left]. Like I've been saying before, this is the best I've felt my whole career. I haven't had the problems I usually have with my hip, because that was one of the things that held me back.

"I wake up now and I don't feel it, and that's a good sign, because usually I wake up in the morning and I'm like, 'OK, my hip's tight. I've got to loosen it up to get it going.' But now it's totally different."

Paxton Lynch is challenging Trevor Siemian for the starting quarterback job in Denver.

Siemian is believed to be have entered the Broncos' offseason programs with the "upper hand," but Lynch is making a push.
