Tests on Ryan Clady’s left foot have led to fear of a serious injury, according to two NFL sources.
The Broncos are discussing options on how to best proceed with their All Pro left tackle. The worst-case scenario of season-ending injured reserve is a possibility.
Placing Clady on IR with the designated to return is another option. Either way, Clady will miss significant time because of a Lisfranc injury in the arch of his left foot. Lisfranc sprains occur when a metatarsal bone is displaced from the tarsus. The more severe Lisfrancs can have a three- to four-month recovery period.
The team is getting medical opinions on the extent of Clady’s injury.
This is that last thing Peyton Manning and the Broncos offense needs right now. They’ve looked great through the first two weeks of the season.
