Paradis will be out until August recovering from hip surgery, Cameron Wolfe of The Denver Post reports.
Paradis had two surgeries on his left hip following the 2016 season and is expected to miss the entirety of training camp while recovering. The 27-year-old center has proven to be more than durable as he has yet to miss a start for the Broncos over the past two years. Look for more updates on his status to come throughout the summer as the preseason nears.
Paradis (hip) had surgery again Tuesday, this time on his left hip, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports.
Paradis had surgery on his right hip only a month ago, but even with this most recent left hip procedure, he's expected to be fully recovered by the time the 2017 regular season commences. According to Jhabvala, Paradis is the only Broncos player that has played every snap in each of the last two seasons, despite persistent pain in his hips, so the surgeries will likely help him stay more durable as time goes on.
Paradis underwent hip surgery on Jan. 10 and is scheduled for a second procedure next week. His agent said the operating doctor is pleased with Paradis' recovery so far and that the offensive lineman should be ready to go by training camp. If everything goes as planned, that means Paradis should be full go in time for the 2017 season opener.
Paradis' operation earlier this week precedes a second surgery on his left hip in approximately three weeks. His doctor believes, "Matt will come back as a much better athlete -- more agile, more explosive -- and really be able to utilize his hips going forward." Paradis is set for a lengthy road to recovery, but he's slated to be at full health by the start of the 2017 regular season.
Paradis hasn't missed game time due to his hip injury this season and won't this week. However, he'll likely require offseason surgery to fix the issues in preparation for next year.
