During the Denver Broncos win over the New York Giants in Week Two, they may have suffered a big loss when starting left tackle Ryan Clady went down with a foot injury in the fourth quarter. Clady was diagnosed with the always dreaded Lisfranc sprain and now the news is getting even worse.
According to the Denver Post, Clady may need season-ending surgery on his injured foot.
The Broncos are continuing to seek additional medical options for Clady’s foot, which could just require rest. In that case, the Broncos would place Clady on the short-term injured reserve list with designation for return. If that was the option the team went with, Clady would not be eligible to return until after Week 11.
While we don’t know exactly how long Clady will be out of action, he will certainly at least miss the next few weeks.
In his absence, the Broncos offensive line will take a major hit at the blindside with Chris Clark stepping in to replace the injured Clady. We will see how the team can adjust without their top offensive lineman.
