- Klis adds that Clady will undergo surgery on his left foot.
- The Broncos will still Chris Clark at left tackle for Week 3’s game against the Raiders.
Denver signed veteran OT Winston Justice to a one-year deal earlier in the day, so there has been some obvious signs that Clady could be done for the year.
Clady, 27, signed a five-year, $52.5 million that includes $33 million guaranteed not too long ago. He’s an invaluable player to the Broncos offense, so we’ll have to see if left tackle ends up being a weak spot for them moving forward.
Pro Football Talk reports that the Denver Broncos are still evaluating all options with regards to LT Ryan Clady’s Lisfranc sprain.
- PFT adds that placing Clady on the injured reserve list with the designation to return later in the season remains a possibility.
Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports that two league sources have informed him that tests on LT Ryan Clady’s left foot have “revealed fear of a serious injury.”
- Klis adds that the Broncos are discussing their current options regarding Clady and injured reserve is a possibility.
- Ian Rapoport adds that there’s a “fear his season could be over.“
Should Denver place him on IR, they could always use the designation to return later in the season if they feel he has a chance to back. Clady’s injury may only cost him a few weeks, but given that it’s Lisfranc sprain, it’s hard to say for certain.
Denver just signed backup OT Chris Clark to a two-year extension, so the timing of this deal could be an indication that Clady will miss some time. It’s usually tough to predict how long someone with be out with a Lisfranc injury.
- Krisztal adds that there’s currently no timetable yet on Clady’s return.
Clady suffered the injury during Sunday’s Week 2 win over the Giants, but was he able to walk off under his own power.
