KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Denver Broncos defense was already missing two starters when Sunday night's game against the Kansas City Chiefs began. By the second quarter, they had lost three more.
Defensive end Derek Wolfe entered the game with a neck injury, and midway through the second quarter he was ruled questionable to return because of the same injury. He was credited with two tackles before leaving the action.
Later in the first half, cornerback Kayvon Webster went down on kickoff coverage with a neck/head injury. After five minutes on the field, he was able to stand but was taken off on a motorized cart. The Broncos reported he would not return to the game.
Then, defensive tackle Sylvester Williams was helped off the field with 3:57 to play with what appeared to be a lower left leg injury. There was no immediate word on his chances of returning to the game.
