Denver Bronco's All Pro Left Tackle Ryan Clady is out for the remainder of the season with a Lisfranc injury in his left foot. He received the injury late in the game against the New York Giants. 
     A Lisfranc injury is an injury of the foot in which one or more of the metatarsal
 bones are displaced from the tarsus. This type of injury is named after Jacques Lisfranc de St. Martin, a French Sugeon who first described the injury in 1815.
      With this type of injury he will need to immobilize his foot with a walking boot. Heeling time is typically 6 weeks or longer. 


As we all know Clady was an excellent blocker, all we can do know is hope that Chris Clark can fill in his big shoes.
