AFC West Update: Clady to Miss Major Time


The Raiders aren't the only AFC West team busy progressing through the offseason.

The Chargers are in the second week of their Organized Team Activities (OTAs), but are doing so without Pro Bowl safety Eric Weddle, who has not reported as a result of mounting frustrations with his contract situation, per Dan Hanzus of ARound the NFL.

The Chiefs are also going through OTAs without the services of their standout safety, as Eric Berry continues his fight against Hodgkin's lymphoma. Following the first day of the Chiefs OTAs, Head Coach Andy Reid gave an update on the former first-team All-Pro's health, saying that Berry's treatment is complete, and he now must meet with his doctors to go over the results.

The Broncos suffered a major blow to their offensive line Wednesday, as left tackle Ryan Clady suffered a torn left ACL during Denver's Offseason Team Activities, according to

With Clady presumably out for the entirety of 2015, the Broncos will look to fill his vacancy with either Chris Clark, rookie Ty Sambrailo or Michael Schofield, according to Mike Wilkening of ProFootballTalk.

The team has also signed T Ryan Harris, so we'll be sure to keep you updated as the situation progresses.

A former first-round draft pick out of Boise State, Clady has started 98 games for the Broncos, been named to four Pro Bowls, as well as first-team All-Pro twice.

This is not Clady's first serious injury, as he missed 14 games in 2013 with a Lisfranc injury to his left foot.

UPDATE:The Broncos placed Clady on Injured Reserve Friday, ending his 2015 season.
