ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) Denver Broncos defensive end Derek Wolfe returned to work Monday after serving his four-game suspension and declared he was "like a caged animal right now," ready to rejoin the NFL's top-ranked defense.
"It was a long month," the fourth-year pro said. "The first two weeks went by real quick and the last two weeks they were just dragging on. I'm just ready to help the team win."
The Broncos (4-0) have done a pretty good job without him, collecting 18 sacks and 11 takeaways with defensive ends Malik Jackson, Vance Walker and Antonio Smith playing superbly in Wolfe's absence.
