Broncos Injury Report: Ron Leary ruled out for Jets game

Posted Dec 8, 2017

Leary will miss his second straight game because of a back issue.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Right guard Ron Leary will miss a second consecutive game because of a back injury, Head Coach Vance Joseph announced after practice Friday.

"He wants to go. He's been trying to go for two weeks," Joseph said. "It's just [slowly] getting better."

With Leary out, Connor McGovern will make his second consecutive start, and he will look to build off his work against the Dolphins last week.

"The first couple of series he kind of felt his way through it, but as the game went on he got more comfortable and he battled [Ndamukong] Suh," Joseph said Wednesday. "He gritted out versus an All-Pro Player, a veteran player who played a lot of football. I was proud of ‘Mac’ and how he played against Suh."

Leary and quarterback Paxton Lynch were the only two players ruled out for Sunday's game with the Jets. Lynch will miss a second straight game because of a high ankle injury.

Nose tackle Domata Peko Sr., wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders and defensive end Adam Gotsis are questionable for Sunday's game. Peko saw limited work Friday after missing five consecutive practices because of a knee injury he suffered late in the Nov. 26 loss at Oakland.

"He's coming along," Joseph said. "If he can go, he will go for us. He's still a little sore, but me knowing Domata, he wants to be out there, so he'll be fine."

Sanders practiced for a second consecutive day after sitting out Wednesday to rest his injured ankle.

"He did some [work]," Joseph said. "He's a little sore still, but he's a warrior. He's going to go Sunday. I have no worries about him. He's been sore for a month and a half, and he still plays."

Gotsis did not practice Friday because of an illness.

"He's the last guy in our D-line room to get it," Joseph said. "He should be fine on Sunday with fluids and washing his hands, right? That's what I said last week. It worked, right? Fluids, wash your hands, rest."
