He'll play San Diego in Week 11.
Clay is the most experienced of the backups to Dustin Keller, who is out for the season with a knee injury. He is expected to remain first on the depth chart when the opener rolls around, but Egnew might be able to push him with a strong performance.
The loss of tight end
"The loss of Keller is disappointing because he was making so much progress even as a blocker, and then fitting into our offense," said offensive coordinator Mike Sherman. "The other three guys have really done a nice job. Obviously, they have a lot on their shoulders now with the loss of Dustin, so they need to be able to pick up the slack there. I think the tight ends have really made a lot of improvement."
Clay is listed first on the depth chart. He boasts the most experience, having caught 34 passes in the last two years combined for 445 yards and five touchdowns.
