ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Outside linebacker Shane Ray could miss the remainder of OTAs with a "sore" left wrist, Head Coach Vance Joseph said Monday.
"[It's] irritated," Joseph said. "So we're not sure [when he'll return]. We're taking it slow, just being smart with guys. It's the spring. So our goal is to get him healthy for training camp. Right now, we're being smart with Shane."
Joseph confirmed the irritation is related to Ray's 2017 injury that caused him to miss the majority of last season.
Ray initially injured his wrist in the early days of training camp last July, and he underwent surgery to repair a damaged ligament.
The former first-round pick returned in Week 7 wearing a protective club on his left hand, but he totaled just one sack in the eight games in which he saw playing time.
Denver then placed Ray on injured reserve ahead of Week 15.
Ray has recorded 13 career sacks in his three seasons in the NFL.
