Denver Broncos first round draft pick Shane Ray left the field against the Houston Texans Saturday, walking under his own power but with the assistance of two trainers. Ray walked off after sharing a sack of Texans QB Tom Savage, where Chuka Ndulue rolled into his leg.

However, the Broncos averted disaster.

It was a particularly close call considering Ray was recovering from turf toe and quad injuries this offseason; he's probably a bit more prone to a setback given those ailments.

We'll let you know if there are any further updates, but for the moment, it appears the Broncos and Ray are just fine.
