The Broncos' offensive line injury woes continue.

Left tackle Ryan Clady, who signed a five-year, $57.5 million contract with Denver this offseason, will miss the rest of the regular season due to a Lisfranc injury that requires surgery. Clady has been placed on season-ending injured reserve.

Clady joins Dan Koppen as starting linemen that have been lost to the season. Expected to protect Peyton Manning's blind side will be Chris Clark, a fourth-year tackle out of Southern Mississippi.

To add depth at the position, the Broncos signed veteran tackle Winston Justice.
