    The Denver Broncos' offense needs to protect Peyton Manning and run the ball effectively, and both tasks got a lot tougher when left tackle Ryan Clady blew out his knee on Wednesday.

    In an OTA practice Clady tore his ACL and will likely miss the 2015 season, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on Thursday. The Broncos confirmed the news shortly after.
