The Denver Broncos will definitely be looking to improve on a 2014 season that was ultimately very disappointing.
The Broncos limped out of the playoffs after being taken apart by Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts, with nothing going right for them and Peyton Manning actually looking like a 39-year old under center.
But if the Broncos wanted Manning to improve and get back to his incredibly high standards in 2015, then their plans just took one hell of a beating, with an injury to one key player.
According to a report from Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Broncos All-Pro left tackle Ryan Clady has suffered a torn ACL in his left knee and will likely miss the entirety of the 2015 NFL season, months before it is even set to start.
Once viewed as the best young player at his position in the entire National Football League, Clady has struggled with injuries greatly in recent years.
Clady was a two-time first-team All Pro by the time he was just 26-years old. But the former Boise State star has had to cope with a torn patella tendon suffered in 2010, whilst also having surgery on a Lisfranc fracture in 2013.
Clady is due $9.5 million next season as part of the five-year, $52.5 million contract he signed in 2013. He was selected by the Broncos in the first round of the 2008 draft with the 12th overall pick.
Clady's injury means that both Manning quarterbacks have lost their blindside protectors in the past two weeks. Eli Manning's New York Giants left tackle Will Beatty is out at least five months with a torn pectoral leaving both brothers with a bit less protection in 2015.
