The Broncos finally got some good news this preseason when All-Pro OLT Ryan Clady returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since injuring his left knee in a pickup basketball game in April.
Clady, a three-year veteran from Boise State, started every game in 2009. Clady said he has increased his upper-body strength as he prepares to once again protect QB Kyle Orton's blind side.
In addition to Clady's health issues, the Broncos have had other high-profile injuries. Star LB Elvis Dumervil was lost for the season with a torn pectoral muscle, rookie QB Tim Tebow is suffering from a rib injury and the RB corps has been banged up as well.
