Many key Broncos, including Wolfe, absent from practice

Defensive end, Derek Wolfe of the Denver Broncos was expected to return to practice Monday, but his comeback has been postponed once again.

The Broncos are hopeful that Wolfe, who has yet to play since suffering “seizure-like symptoms” on November 29, will return some point this week. He actually came back to participate in Denver’s Christmas day practice, but missed the next day’s practice with the flu.

The team has kept Wolfe on their active roster, but it is uncertain how much playing time he will receive when / if he returns.

Safety Rahim Moore, who was eligible to start practicing again last week, was also absent from Monday’s frigid run-throughs. Moore was placed on the Injured Reserve List to return in November and isn’t eligible to play until the AFC Championship should Denver advance that far.

Another no-show for Monday’s practice was Shaun Phillips, defensive end and former San Diego Charger. It’s likely that his absence is due to a minor sickness instead of an unknown injury.

The rest of the Broncos squad was intact for practice Monday, a necessity when preparing to take on their rival and only team to beat them at home, the Chargers in the Divisional Round this Sunday.

The Broncos will face many problems from the Chargers this weekend.
