IT’S OF­FI­CIAL: WARE ONE OF THE GOOD GUYS

The Denver Post - - SPORTS -

For the 10th con­sec­u­tive sea­son, a de­fen­sive player was se­lected by lo­cal me­dia cov­er­ing the Broncos as the team’s Dar­rent Wil­liams Good Guy Award re­cip­i­ent.

Out­side linebacker DeMar­cus Ware is the 2016 win­ner of the award given to a Broncos player who dis­plays hon­esty and co­op­er­a­tion with the me­dia.

“When you think about a guy like Dar­rent, what he has done for this or­ga­ni­za­tion — the charisma each and ev­ery day,” Ware said. “Get up here and take the crit­i­cism, if it’s good or bad.”

Ware was a 2015 fi­nal­ist for the NFL’s na­tional Good Guy Award.

“DeMar­cus was the clear win­ner this year,” said Jeff Leg­wold, pres­i­dent of the Pro Football Writ­ers of Amer­ica and a Broncos re­porter for ESPN.com. “Those who named him as the win­ner cited his will­ing­ness not only to take the time, but to dis­cuss a wide range of is­sues then of­fer com­ments of sub­stance.

The Broncos re­ceived good news Mon­day about de­fen­sive end Derek Wolfe, who suf­fered a sprained neck dur­ing the New Eng­land game Sun­day.

“He’s go­ing to be fine. I’d say he’s day to day,” coach Gary Ku­biak said. “(It’s) some­thing he’s been deal­ing with for the last cou­ple months.”

Wolfe left Sun­day’s game in the sec­ond quar­ter and didn’t re­turn. He com­pared the in­jury to a “re­ally bad stinger,” feel­ing pain in his in­flamed neck and shoul­der. He said he plans to play against Kansas City
