The Denver Broncos dodged a bullet with defensive lineman Derek Wolfe’s ankle injury on Saturday. The sprain isn’t thought to be serious, but it still looks incredibly bad at the moment.
Wolfe posted a picture of the ankle to Twitter on Saturday, and the swelling is pretty intense.

Some folks might consider that amount of swelling to be serious, but when you’re a professional football player, the threshold for pain is a little different.
