ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- The Denver Broncos might have lost a fourth defensive starter for their game at Kansas City on Sunday after lineman Derek Wolfe fell ill sometime between the end of practice Friday and the team's departure to the airport about an hour later.

The defensive end/tackle was added to the injury report and listed as questionable, same as cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (shoulder).

The Broncos have lost two defensive starters to injury in the past two weeks. Safety Rahim Moore underwent emergency surgery to fix a blood flow problem in his left leg after pulling up lame against Kansas City on Nov. 17. Defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson dislocated his right hip Sunday at New England.

Both went on injured reserve, although Moore could return for the playoffs.
