At least D’Qwell Jackson is younger than 36

Good Morning, Broncos fans! Derek Wolfe spoke Wednesday about the frightening health scare that eventually ended his 2013 season.

The details are even worse than we'd all previously known.

Wolfe, who just celebrated his 24th birthday on Monday, says he was unconscious for 26 hours after the seizure-like episode he endured on the team bus.

Months later, doctors apparently still don't know what caused Wolfe's spine problems, although they suspect his preseason injury at Seattle has something to do with it.

Denver's 2012 second-rounder admits he probably attempted to resume playing too soon after his injury, and that his two months off have left him feeling great.

According to Wolfe, he's put back on 20 pounds that he'd lost from his hospitalization, and plans to resume his training next week.

Obviously, this is all great news, and we are thrilled to learn that Wolfe is faring better.
