Report: Ryan Clady avoided full patellar tendon tear

Well, there’s some good news for the Broncos and, more specifically, left tackle Ryan Clady.  Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports that Clady suffered only a partial tear of the patellar tendon in his knee.

Per Klis, the tendon was only 50 percent torn.  As a result, Clady is expected to miss three months, and to be able to suit up and play in four. 

The team reportedly is “hopeful” that Clady will be available for the September 12 opener in Jacksonville.

The rehab process already has commenced.  Klis reports that Clady had surgery on Tuesday.  The injury occurred over the weekend.
