The market was waiting f or USA consumer inflation data on Friday that would offer more clues about future Fed decisions. Railroad stocks have shown a strong move to the upside on the day, driving the Dow Jones Railroads Index up by 1.3%.

Wolfe has posted 5.5 sacks in each of the previous two seasons, respectively. Wolfe couldn't put any weight on his right leg as he was helped inside and then sent for an MRI. He bulked up over the summer, saying he added 20 pounds of muscle because "I was like 285 previous year and it was a little too light holding the point". If Wolfe is lost for significant time, the Broncos might have to find a veteran replacement. Wolfe's injury comes less than 48 hours after defensive end Billy Winn suffered a season-ending knee injury against the Bears. He missed all of last season with a knee injury suffered in training camp last season while going against Russell Okung.

The Broncos have wrestled with some high-profile injuries so far in camp;running back Devontae Booker (left wrist) and linebacker Shane Ray (left wrist) will miss the entire preseason.
