Englewood, Colo. • The Denver Broncos placed Ryan Clady on season-ending injured reserve after the Pro Bowl left tackle hurt his left foot last weekend.
Clady will soon undergo surgery to fix his foot.
To fill Clady’s spot, the Broncos brought in veteran tackle Winston Justice.
Clady was hurt in the closing minutes Sunday when Giants defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins rolled up on him while the Broncos were trying to run out the clock in their 41-23 win. Clady has protected Peyton Manning’s blindside since the four-time MVP arrived in Denver last season.
Chris Clark is expected to step in for Clady, who’s never missed a start since being a first-round pick in 2008 out of Boise State.
