Broncos add a lineman to replace Billy Winn, Derek Wolfe injures ankle

12 Août 2017

Broncos defensive end Billy Winn is out for the season after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament and suffering damage to other ligaments in his right knee during Thursday's preseason opener at Chicago, an National Football League source confirmed.

With depth NT Kyle Peko still recovering from a broken foot, the interior of the line was already a man short.

In a corresponding move, the Broncos signed rookie defensive lineman Nelson Adams, who was formerly with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Winn was placed on injured reserve. Twenty-five of those tackles and 2.5 sacks came during his senior season. On Aug. 8, he was released and replaced by cornerback JaCorey Shepherd.

Wolfe did not put weight on his right leg after going down.

The addition of Adams is a minor addition compared to the potential major subtraction they could be looking at after Saturday's practice.

"It's an ankle injury, we're not sure how bad", Broncos coach Vance Joseph said immediately following practice. He played 57.93 percent of all defensive snaps last season, a number that was expected to go up in 2017.
