Ryan Clady Tears Patellar Tendon Playing Basketball, 2010 Season in Jeopardy

From Pro Football Talk, Ryan Clady reportedly tore his patellar tendon playing a pickup game of basketball, something the Denver Broncos are not going to be happy about.  Clady will likely miss the 2010 season according to PFT, but nothing is yet official.

If this report of Clady missing 2010 holds true, the Broncos will soon be in the market for an offensive tackle, especially with the status of Ryan Harris also in question.  The Denver Broncos drafted Zane Beadles out of Utah, a player they believe can play the right tackle spot, so it wouldn't be out of the question to see the athletic Harris move to the left side and have Beadles fill in at right tackle.

Seth Olsen also played right tackle at Iowa, or as PFT speculates, the Broncos could be in the market for a guy like Flozell Adams.

***UPDATE:  Clady tells Fox 31's Josina Anderson that his injury has already been surgically repaired, "it's not that bad", and he's "hopeful he will be ready for training camp".  Perhaps Clady is just being optimistic, or perhaps the tear was slight, and his recovery speed will be faster.  More to come
