ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Outside linebacker Shane Ray's season ended Tuesday as the Broncos placed him on injured reserve.
Ray recently underwent a procedure to have pins removed from his surgically repaired left wrist. The third-year player tore a ligament in his wrist early in training camp, and he had an initial procedure done at that time. He then spent the first eight weeks of the season on injured reserve.
The Broncos designated Ray as one of their two players eligible to return, and he made his 2017 debut against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Ray picked up a single sack on the year and finished with 16 tackles in eight games.
Denver signed cornerback Michael Hunter from its practice squad to the active roster in a corresponding move.
