Denver Broncos head coach John Fox said Monday that he’ll let the team’s medical staff evaluate left tackle Ryan Clady and strong safety Duke Ihenacho before he gives a status report on their injuries.
Several NFL sources said Monday that Clady could miss several weeks with a foot injury suffered in the Broncos’ 41-23 win over the New York Giants on Sunday.
“I’m no fortune teller or into tea leaves or any of that good stuff,” Fox said, via The Denver Post. “I’m into the reporting nature of how we report the game. So right now it’s exactly what we said — it’s a left foot sprain — and when we know something (more) we’ll let all the fortune tellers know.”
Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reported Monday that Clady has a Lisfranc Sprain, and was seen wearing a walking boot after the game.
If Clady is unable to play Monday night against the Oakland Raiders, Fox is confident Chris Clark can handle protecting Peyton Manning’s blind side.
Clark coincidentally signed a two-year extension with the Broncos Monday morning.
The other injury Sunday was to Inenacho, who injured his right ankle.
“We’ll still evaluate those injuries and we’ll keep you updated as they progress during the week,” Fox said.
