Lineman Returns to His Love: The Football Field

By  | 

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The seizure, the weight loss, the false-start of a comeback. Derek Wolfe endured them all while always keeping one goal in mind: Getting back on the football field.

That the Broncos defensive lineman kept football on the front burner through the difficult times is a testament to the third-year veteran's love of the game. This was not, by any means, your typical football injury.

Wolfe suffered a seizure during the bus ride to the airport for Denver's flight to Kansas City last Nov. 29. He ended up in the hospital for several days, and was put in a medically induced coma while doctors performed procedures to rule out a brain tumor.
