Good Morning, Broncos fans! Reports are a bit mixed regarding the status of Ryan Clady's foot.
But when Mike Klis says that placing Clady on IR is a real option for the team, it's hard to dismiss the report.
Our only bone to pick there is with the suggestion that Denver is faced with the choice of going the short-term or season-ending route.
Sorry, but there's no way Denver's left tackle ends up on the season-ending IR. Injuries like this, and players as important as Clady, are precisely what the league's new eligible-for-return IR is intended for.
ReFo: DEN @ NYG, Week 2
They used 21 players on defense during the game, and 16 of them rushed the passer at some stage. Of those 16 players, only Nate Irving, who rushed just once, failed to record any pressure at all. Denver had fifteen members of its defense register pressure.
Granted, it would be nice to see a bit more pressure, especially prior to PMFM & Co. stretching out a lead. But still, there's a lot to love about how Jack Del Rio operates, and Von Miller will be back four weeks from now.

They set up a Facebook page and a website to gather support for their cause. They also staged a rally at EverBank Field on Monday (at 3:16 p.m. ET, because of course). (Empahasis IAOFM’s)
CBSSports.com senior writer Pete Prisco isn’t a huge fan of Tim Tebow, but since he was in town, he sure didn’t miss this chance to stir the pot.
Pete Prisco is a huge troll who writes for CBS, and lives in Jacksonville. He was one of the first newspaper (Florida Times-Union) guys to leave that medium to write for an online site, probably around 2002 or so. I remember him at the Times-Union when I lived in Jacksonville from 1996-2002, and I thought he was an ass even them. As Keith Olbermann pointed out recently, he hasn't grown from there.
Pricco, as Newsday's Bob Glauber calls him on Twitter, really hates Tim Tebow, and is even more enthusiastic about telling people so than our own Doug Lee is. So who could really be surprised that he showed up to the Rally of Zombies? I actually give Pricco credit for ignoring the risk of having his flesh eaten.
Broncos LB Von Miller beefing up support system with parents
Miller isn’t seen as a bad kid by any stretch, but clearly he has issues with maturity and responsibility. He’s been known to show up to the wrong meeting at the team facility or show up late despite being inside the facility, with details sometimes slipping his mind.
Sources not that close to IAOFM's Baxter McLove suggest that Von has had pizza delivered to him during team meetings, Spicoli style.
Sunday's beatdown of the Giants has come with a price for Denver, as All-Pro left tackle Ryan Clady is reportedly expected to miss several weeks due to a Lisfranc sprain in his left foot.
According to the Denver Post, Clady's injury is serious enough to possibly threaten his availability for the rest of the season.
According to the agent for Chris Clark, the Broncos have given their backup swing tackle a two-year extension through the 2015 season.
Clark is currently making $1.323M on a restricted tender and had been scheduled to reach unrestricted free agency after the season.
The fifth-year player out of Southern Miss took four snaps during Sunday's win after not playing in the opener.
Good Afternoon, Broncos fans! With their 41-23 demolition of the host Giants, the Broncos have sent another emphatic message to the rest of the league.
That is: We can kick all of your asses, even without our two best defensive players.
Denver has now scored 90 points and allowed 50, for a points differential of +40. Green Bay is a distant second in scoring, with 66 points, while Seattle is second in differential at +31.
PFR's SRS has Denver at +21.1, Seattle second at +17.1, and New England a distant third at +12.8.
Anyone can hang in the first half.
It’s how you play in the second half that matters.
Under Peyton Manning, it’s become a well-known story. The Broncos come out and see what the defense wants to do. They run, they pass, they do a little dance. They even score a few points.
In the second half, they release the Kraken.
Players, coaches, even little brothers—they all drown in the wake.
On the opening possession of the game, Denver fell back as far as its own 4-yard line and drove 90 yards from there, but Montee Ball fumbled into the end zone in classic rookie fashion.
A 51-yard pass from Eli Manning to Victor Cruz set up what would ultimately be a 36-yard field goal, putting the Giants up 3-0 and completing what we'll call a 10-point swing.
