Fox 31 Alert: I just got off the phone with R. Clady. He spoke briefly. Clady says that he's hopeful he will be "ready for training camp."

If you hold any water in the Josina tweets it appears that the injury likely did not occur today as Clady already had surgery on it.

http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/36833661/ns/sports-player_news/

"
Broncos LT Ryan Clady confirmed Wednesday that he needed surgery to repair the patellar tendon he injured in a recent non-football-related incident.

The surgery was done on Clady's left knee. The Pro Bowler claims the injury is not serious, but Mike Lombardi reported on NFL Network's Around the League program Wednesday that Clady will miss "significant" time. "It's not that bad," Clady insisted to FOX 31 Denver, adding that he hopes to be "ready for training camp." Still, it sounds like Clady tore the tendon, which could easily sideline him into Week 1. We'll update as the situation develops."

It's not going to be three months. Its a serious injury that is similar to blowing an Achilles in terms of healing time.

Treatment & Rehabilitation

* In most cases the patellar tendon becomes completely ruptured across its width and thus surgical intervention is required to repair the damage. This involves suturing (stitching) the torn tendon.
* Following surgery the patient will be advised on a specific rehabilitation plan which normally involves little or no weight-bearing on the affected knee and wearing a knee brace to prevent the knee from bending. This may be required for more than 6 weeks.
* Once the knee brace has been removed exercises to regain full range of movement and build up the strength of the quadriceps muscle group should be carried out.

Rehabilitation from a patellar tendon rupture is extremely slow and it may take between 6 and 12 months before the patient is able to return to sports.
Clady "wants" to have it fixed quickly but it won't be. It will take a long time. This has October as the earliest. He is young and athletic, but he's never had an injury like this.

And what a stupid thing for a guy his size to do. Playing basketball? Really? Well Clady, your little pickup game just set your team back - if not for all of next year, possibly for the first part of the season.

It's being reported that it's not worst case scenario. It's not nearly as serious as it couldve been. All reports Schefter and Jason LaConforna have him

One of the reasons Clady was an athletic Tackle was that he played basketball. Other NFL players are boxing & doing MMA to stay in shape. John Lynch's offseason workout used to look pretty insane.

Great points. I was watching a ballgame the other day where Dick Enberg said Josh Johnson of the Marlins stayed in shape and worked on his athleticism in the offseason by playing basketball.

Joe Paterno watches football recruits on the basketball court to get a good idea of their short area explosion. It's no doubt a great way to improve foot quickness.

You can't expect world class athletes to completely shut it down. Clady is just as likely to get hurt in team mandated workouts at Dove Valley as he is in a pickup basketball game. There are a myriad of ways one can get hurt, it's just part of the risk that's life.

Not sure how he's going to miss regular season time. A torn patella takes 3-4 months to heal according to every site that I have visited and doesn't take near the rehab any other knee tendon takes.

I bet he plays week 1.

According to the Denver Post:

The blind side of Kyle Orton, the front side of Tim Tebow, just got a little less secure.
Broncos left tackle Ryan Clady had surgery Tuesday at a Steadman Hawkins Clinic to repair a partially torn patellar tendon, an injury suffered while playing basketball over the weekend, multiple NFL sources confirmed.
Because the tendon was only 50 percent torn, Clady is expected to be out for three months and will be able to play again in four months, meaning he will likely miss the entire preseason. The team is hopeful Clady will be ready in the regular season opener in Jacksonville on Sept. 12.

Who knows, this might lead to us getting GREAT compensation if we decide to trade Harris due to Beadles productivity....

I was going through this whole thread thinking to myself "just because the tendon is torn doesn't mean it was completely ruptured, especially considering that he seemed relatively upbeat about it." Glad to see that was the case.

It's one thing when you in college to go play hoops and I know/understand that many players do off-field sports. But it's not worth the gamble when you are getting paid millions to play Football and end up hurt playing a pick-up game of hoops.

I would understand getting hurt working out "Preparing" for 2010 football season. That's about making yourself better for the Team.

It's cool is Tyler Polumbus goes plays hoops. But not your All-Pro Left tackle that is being counted on to play 16+ games.

Playing other sports is a phenomenal way to stay in shape for your main sport and add variation to your workouts. Do you really think an athlete is going to ONLY do football related work all offseason? That would be incredibly monotonous.

I understand your frustration, but it's not realistic to expect top-level atheletes to stop being athletes in the offseason. Or to expect guys that grew up playing multiple sports, and whose friends still play those sports, to refrain and sit at home.

He's just as likely to get injured playing hoops as he is jogging or lifting weights.

It's absurd to pretend the risk is somehow increased playing other sports.

You really believe you are equally at risk of a serious injury while jogging as you are playing basketball?

I think we should take it easy on the Tebow/God thing. Jokes or not god clearly didn't find it funny and hurt our best player.

LOL, so true!

i disagree...anytime you play a sport like basketball, you are jumping, cutting, and doing a lot of things that can be unpredictable and cause these type of injuries.

Def. sucks
