Report: Shane Ray dealing with wrist injury at OTAs

New, comments

The same injury that sidelined Shane Ray in 2017 is causing problems for him during Denver Broncos OTA’s this week.

Denver Broncos edge rusher Shane Ray spent most of his 2017 season nursing and fighting through a wrist injury. That same wrist is acting up again during the teams OTA’s this week.

During the first week of training camp last season, Ray tore a ligament in his wrist and was slated to miss the first 6-8 weeks of the regular season. He returned with a cast on his wrist, but was never quite the same and ended the season on injured reserve.

With the addition of Bradley Chubb to the rotation, Ray needed a big offseason to challenge for playing time. This will severely limit his chances of keeping Chubb at bay moving forward.

The best thing for Ray now is to slow it way down and ensure his wrist is fully healed before returning to the field. He cannot afford to have another season of fighting through this nagging wrist injury.

Update: Ray should be OK and the issues are not unexpected.
