Broncos expect Wolfe, Welker for opener
The MRI showed no major tears, but Bailey was dealing with plenty of soreness in the arch of his foot and the exact timetable for a return to practice was still uncertain. The Broncos are hopeful they see progress in him over the next three weeks so he will be available for the Sept. 5 regular-season opener against the Ravens.
Wolfe, after tests in a Seattle hospital Saturday night, was allowed to return to Denver on the team’s chartered flight. He is expected, at this point, to be available for the season opener against Baltimore.
Welker was treated for a sprained ankle and is expected to be available for the Ravens game as well if all goes well.
Broncos guard Louis Vasquez was also in for treatment on his left knee, but could be available to practice this week if all goes well.
No injuries are good injuries, but if the Broncos are able to make it through the preseason without losing anyone else for the year beyond Dan Koppen, it will have been a good preseason.
