Derek Wolfe says he’ll be back on the football field soon. The Broncos hope fellow starters Wes Welker, Champ Bailey, Louis Vasquez, and Stewart Bradley will be there with him.
All of them were hurt in Denver’s 40-10 preseason loss at Seattle on Saturday night.
Wolfe accompanied his teammates on their flight home after being whisked from the field in an ambulance after a scary scene in which he lay prone on the field for a few minutes following a hit to his head.
Medical staff strapped him to a backboard and sent him to a hospital for evaluation of a possible cervical spine injury. X-rays, CT scans, and MRIs were all negative, however.
‘‘Thanks for the prayers everyone, ill be okay and will be back on the field soon ...’’ Wolfe tweeted Sunday, an off day for the players. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
