ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Broncos left tackle Ryan Clady tore his left anterior cruciate ligament during practice Wednesday and will likely miss the 2015 season, the team announced Thursday.
Clady is the team's longest-tenured player, joining the roster as a first-round draft pick in 2008.
ESPN's Jeff Legwold reported Clady was initially treated by trainers before limping off the field. An MRI confirmed the tear.
It will force the Broncos to scramble on the offensive line, with right tackle Chris Clark a possibility on the left side. He played the position in 2013 when Clady missed 14 games because of a foot injury.
ESPN's Adam Schefter was first to report the story.
