(ENGLEWOOD, Colo.) — The Denver Broncos announced that three-time Pro Bowl tackle Ryan Clady has been placed on injured reserve with a left foot injury, which will require surgery, and take Clady out the rest of the season.
Clady suffered a Lisfranc joint tear to his left foot late in their Week 2 victory over the Giants.
Chris Clark will now get the call to protect Peyton Manning’s blind side.
“You get a chance to learn different things, snap counts, different things like that, and learn (Manning’s) rhythm,” Clark said on Tuesday. “Sometimes you can jump the ball before it comes out of his mouth because we know his rhythm. Getting different things like that, that definitely helps me as a tackle.”
The fourth-year pro has made six NFL starts and won’t change the way he prepares for the Oakland Raiders on Monday night.
“I’m just going to prepare the same way and do things the way it should be done. It’s not about filling a guy’s shoes for me,” Clark said on possibly taking over. “It’s about me creating my legacy or whatever – just helping the team the best way I can – doing my job.”
