Despite the on field success of the Denver Broncos this season, their offensive and defensive lines can’t say the same off the field.

After losing their starting center for the season, it appears tackle Ryan Clady will also be hitting the sidelines for a significant amount of time after he was diagnosed with a Lisfranc sprain today.

Per Brandon Krisztal:

According a #Broncos Team Source, LT Ryan Clady’s MRI revealed a Lisfranc Sprain on inj. left foot. No timetable yet on his return

Clady, who was able to walk off the field under his own power in the Broncos’ victory over the New York Giants had x-ray’s after the game which didn’t show any breaks, so there was hope it was nothing serious. However, a Lisfranc sprain can be a lingering injury which can take quite a while to heal, especially for a lineman of Clady’s size.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter suggested that Clady will miss ‘at least a few weeks’ and considering the history of Lisfranc injuries, that’s likely looking at the most positive outcome.

Chris Clark should take over left tackle duties until Clady returns, whenever that might be.

    I can’t wait to see the Broncos at full strength when Clady is back healthy, along with Von & Champ.
