The Denver Broncos defense was looking pretty thin defensively in their win over the Tennessee Titans. That’s why John Fox’s announcement that defensive end Derek Wolfe would resume working with the team was welcomed news.

Wolfe has missed the last two games after experiencing seizure-like symptoms on the team bus ride to the airport prior to the Kansas City game. He was hospitalized over that weekend, and doctors ran numerous tests trying to figure out the cause of the symptoms.

“I think that’s kind of personal,” Fox said of Wolfe’s situation. “So I’m not going to go into everybody’s medical history. But he’s coming back—he’ll kind of get back involved and we’ll bring him back day-to-day.”

Wolfe will begin working with the team again on Tuesday and Fox reported that doctors seems to have a good idea why the symptoms came on.

The team is already without defensive tackle Kevin Vickserson on the line so it will be good to have Wolfe back eventually.

The second-year player out of Cincinnati has 16 tackles and 4 sacks this season.
