Denver Broncos defensive end Derek Wolfe has revealed that he is feeling "fine" after recovering from a neck injury.

Wolfe left the Broncos practice field in an ambulance in what looked to be a concerning injury, but fortunately for the 23-year-old the damage was not serious.

He told the club's official website: "It feels really good. I thought I was going to be out a little bit longer but I started better and every day it was getting better.

"Absolutely, there is no question that I'll [play], as long as nothing happens in practice, knock on wood. Don't want to get hurt in practice but as long as I don't re-injure it I should be fine."

Denver open their regular season campaign against the Baltimore Ravens next week.
