It’s not looking very good. Wolfe stated that he has pneumonia and that he should be able to breathe normally. Brandon Stokley, a former Bronco, said it was “awful news.”
Wolfe stated, “Great football player, great person, and a great teammate. Just an all-around great dude.”
Hillman was the Broncos’ top rusher in their Super Bowl 50 win team of 2015. He started 10 of 16 games and ran 863 yards on just 207 carries.
Hillman, 31 years old, was a third-round selection out of San Diego State University in 2012. After four seasons in Denver, Hillman was a third-round pick out of San Diego State in 2012. He then spent the 2016 season with the San Diego Chargers and Minnesota Vikings.
In 2017, he attended training camp with the Dallas Cowboys, but he did not make it to the 53-man roster.
