Broncos OLB Shane Ray Needs Another Wrist Surgery, Expected To Miss Three Months


Ian Rapoport reports that Broncos OLB Shane Ray does, in fact, require a second surgery on his wrist after getting a second opinion on his injury.

Rapoport also reports that Ray is expected to miss “three months” with his injury and could miss the start of the regular season

Ray, 25, is a former first-round pick of the Broncos back in 2015. He’s entering the final year of his four-year, $9.116 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $1,678,485 in 2018.

Denver placed him on injured reserve coming out of last year’s preseason with a wrist injury and was designated as their player to return. However, Ray landed on the injured reserve a second time in December after re-injuring his wrist.

The Broncos declined his fifth-year option this offseason, which means he’ll be an unrestricted free agent in 2019.

In 2017, Ray appeared in eight games for the Broncos and recorded 16 tackles and a sack. Pro Football Focus rated him as the No. 97 edge defender out of 106 qualifying players.
