Denver Broncos linebacker Shane Ray reportedly has a sprained MCL.
Ray was hurt in the second quarter of Denver’s overtime win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. After making a tackle, Ray was helped off the field favoring his right knee, and was eventually carted back to the locker room.
Ray, a first-round draft pick out of Missouri, has four combined tackles and two sacks for the Broncos this season. Sunday, Ray was playing in place of the injured DeMarcus Ware at outside linebacker.
Shaquil Barret and Lerentee McCray are the other outside linebackers on the Broncos’ depth chart. Ware could be back for the team’s next game, which comes after a bye week.
The 6–0 Broncos will play the Green Bay Packers in Week 8.
