Broncos place left tackle Ryan Clady on season-ending IR after ACL tear
Clady, 28, started all 16 games for the Broncos last season and was selected to his fourth career Pro Bowl. He was a first-round pick in 2008 and was immediately installed as Denver's starting left tackle.
Clady was a Pro Bowl and First Team All-Pro choice in 2009 and 2012. He also went to the Pro Bowl in 2011.
In 2013, Clady suffered a season-ending foot injury in the second game of the season. Aside from that season, Clady has started every game for the Broncos since 2008.
The Broncos had four offensive linemen start all 16 games last season: Clady, Orlando Franklin, Louis Vasquez and Manny Ramirez. Franklin signed with the San Diego Chargers as a free agent and Ramirez was traded to the Detroit Lions.
