Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports that Denver Broncos Pro Bowl left tackle Ryan Clady has suffered a non-football injury to the patellar tendon in one of his knees.
The severity of the injury, and how it occurred, is presently unknown.
Clady, the 12th overall pick of the 2008 NFL Draft out of Boise State, finished third in Offensive Rookie of the Year balloting after allowing just a half-sack during his rookie season. Clady was second-team All-Pro as a rookie, as well.
Clady (6-6, 325) has started at left tackle in all 32 of his games in the National Football League, and after the 2009 season, started the Pro Bowl for the AFC squad and earned first-team All-Pro honors.
