Clady Making Progress

Posted Aug 13, 2013

Tackle Ryan Clady is easing back into things in training camp.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – Ryan Clady has been in pads for just about two weeks’ worth of training camp, and though his participation has been limited, it has been increasing.

Clady had surgery to repair his rotator cuff after injuring it in Week 17 of last season.

He said that working his way to more reps in practice right now is matter of getting his shoulder comfortable and building his strength back up. Though the pain is gone, it’s still sore from “time-to-time.”

“It’s kind of a progression,” Clady said. “We have a plan. So kind of just stick to the plan and get better throughout that time.”

While it's unclear how much playing time — if any — Clady will receive during the preseason, the tackle said he'd welcome those reps.

“It’s just getting out there, getting comfortable and getting into a groove," he said. "I’ve been around for a little bit now, so it’s not necessarily mandatory, but I could definitely use it.”

Clady started taking reps during full-team drills in Saturday's training camp practice. After that session, Head Coach John Fox said that the training and strength and conditioning staffs were trying to ease Clady back into things.

"(We're) still trying to get Ryan ready for the season opener," Fox said Saturday. "At this stage, I think everything is on target."

Clady noted that there is a difference between being in shape and being in football shape, and he’s still working on getting back to full speed but that he was making progress.

Even though he’s not taking very many reps right now, he prefers that to watching from the sidelines.

“It’s weird not practicing every rep or whatnot with the team,” he said. “It’s definitely humbling. You definitely do feel like you’re not a football player — especially the last six months for me. You’re not really doing anything, just rehabbing.”

Though injuries and roster additions have moved some pieces around on the offensive line, Clady isn’t concerned about continuity or chemistry. The experience of the players on the line make those sort of issues less of a factor.

“I think we’re all mature," he said. "It’s not a bunch of first- and second-year guys we’re dealing with. So we’re mature enough to jell together and become a good unit.”
