Ryan Clady out for season

Denver Broncos left-tackle Ryan Clady has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a foot injury suffered during the 41-23 win over the New York Giants on Sunday.

Clady has provided excellent cover for star quarter-back Peyton Manning so far this campaign, but he will play no further part this season after being placed on the season-ending injury reserve list.

The Broncos have been quick to replace him though, and veteran tackle Winston Justice will take Clady's place on the roster for the remainder of the campaign.

The 27-year old has only recently signed a new deal with the team, worth a guaranteed $33 million, and he has been voted one of two offensive captains by his team-mates, along with Manning, for the first time in his career.

The injury will come as a massive blow to the Broncos, although they are hoping Chris Clark will be able to fill the void left by Clady and provide ample support for Manning for the remainder of the season.

Clark, who himself recently signed a two-year contract extension, is expected to start at left-tackle on Monday night against the Oakland Raiders, and he is looking forward to the challenge.

He said: "Stepping up into a role like this, it's not going to be hard for me to adjust.

""It's not about filling a guy's shoes for me. It's not about me creating my legacy, just helping the team the best way I can and doing my job."
