Golf Cart Injury May End Broncos Lineman's Career

Denver Broncos guard/center Matt McChesney could announce his retirement from football after his surgically-repaired ankle was clipped by a golf cart recently, Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports.

"It was just a freak accident," said McChesney. "It stinks."

McChesney (6-4, 333) injured the ankle during the 2009 pre-season, and Klis adds that the Broncos have communicated to McChesney that they'd like him to continue to rehabilitate the injury and compete in training camp.

"It's been a long road," said McChesney, who began his NFL career as an undrafted free agent with the St. Louis Rams in 2005.

McChesney spent part of his rookie season with the New York Jets, totaling 3 tackles in 3 games, including one for a loss. McChesney spent most of 2006 on the Jets' practice squad, and missed all of 2007 after being injured while playing in NFL Europa.

McChesney split time on the Jets and Miami Dolphins' practice squad in 2008, before being signed to the Dolphins' active roster. McChesney appeared in one game, but injured his knee and placed on injured reserve.

The Broncos signed the former University of Colorado defensive lineman last off-season.
