Injurys is just another part of the game. Its not a matter of if, its a matter of when. Sometimes they can hurt the team more then you think. The athlete injured? Ryan Clady. He is the pro bowler who has been with the Broncos since 2008. He plays left tackle, and since Peyton Manning is right handed he covers Mannings blind side. The athlete covering the blind side is one of the most key components in a team. The Qb can see the defense coming on the right and center and can react by scrambleing or throwing the ball. He can't see the left(if he's right handed) and can get hit causing a intercepting, fumble, or worse a injured Qb. He is a two time All-pro and has been elected to four pro bowls.Last year he only allowed two sacks in 1,084 regular season snaps protects Peyton Manning's blind side. Clady tore his ACL in practice wednesday. This is going to hurt the broncos a lot. Its going to be hard replacing one of the best left tackles in the NFL. Denvers plan is to move over Chris Clark who played in cladys position in 2013 when clady was out for a foot injury.
