ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Broncos defensive end Derek Wolfe has been ruled out of Denver’s game at Kansas City with a mysterious illness after getting sick on the team’s bus ride to the airport Friday.

Wolfe was transported to a Denver hospital by ambulance. The Broncos said Saturday that the defensive end was “continuing to be evaluated by doctors to determine the cause of his symptoms.”

Wolfe is the second defensive starter who needed emergency medical attention in the last two weeks.

On Nov. 18, safety Rahim Moore underwent surgery to staunch bleeding in the muscle sheath in his lower left leg, a condition known as lateral compartment syndrome that can cost patients a limb or even their life.

Wolfe has had a tough year. He was whisked from the field in an ambulance in a preseason game at Seattle after a hit to his head and neck, then missed more than a week of practice. In September, he had a bout of food poisoning that led to problems keeping his weight up.
