  • In 2012 our injuries were actually quite minor.

    2013 was really bad though.

    • We had a weird rash of injuries, most of the more important ones came late in the season.
      But honestly, how is the training staff supposed to prevent ACL tears?
      We looked far better late in this previous season than we have in the past 2-3+ previous to it.

        It was why the Baltimore loss still stings. That was our freaking year.

        • "Then, on November, 29, he suffered a seizure while riding the team bus to the airport.

          "My nervous system kinda shut down," Wolfe said. "My body just kind of stopped. I didn't feel like I passed out, it just felt like I needed to fall asleep."

          He says teammate Terrance Knighton started yelling for the bus to stop. Wolfe awoke 26 hours later in the hospital.

          Wolfe says he was restrained in the hospital and even put into a medically induced coma to allow doctors to perform a spinal tap.

          "They did an unbelievable job," he says.

          To this day, the origin of the season-ending spine injury remains a bit of a mystery. Wolfe and his doctors suspect it all began with the preseason injury in Seattle, but they cannot be sure. It could also have been a random, unlucky impact from another game he played in -- or some combination of hits.

          With the support of the Broncos, Wolfe took two months off to rest and recover after that seizure.

          "Everybody just wanted to see me get better because it was scary. You know? To see one of your teammates go down like that, I can only imagine what those guys were thinking," Wolfe said.

          Now, Wolfe says he is headed back to start training next week.

          "I needed to let myself heal, so I took about two months and did nothing," he says -- adding that it seems to have worked. "I feel better than I ever felt before."

            Why the F wasn't Derek put on injured reserve much sooner?
            He's the strength and conditioning coach, not the team doctor.

              • I'm interested in hearing why the team didn't just say, "we don't know what's wrong, but the best doctors money can buy, are looking into it." Instead, we got "flu."

                      Yup. No reason I can think of that they couldn't have just told the true story at the time.
