Leary would need to pass a physical by March 17 in order to void the injury guarantee, which is entirely improbable after suffering a torn Achilles' tendon in October. The Broncos could still part ways with the veteran guard, but the injury guarantee minimizes the potential cap savings the move would bring under non-injury circumstances. Leary's availability for the start of the season remains up in the air as he continues his recovery.
Leary was placed on injured reserve with a torn Achilles' tendon Monday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
Leary's injury will keep him out for the remainder of the season. Max Garcia is expected to slot into a starting guard role.
Leary was diagnosed Sunday with a torn Achilles' tendon, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
It was initially reported that Leary had hurt his ankle, but apparently, the injury is much more severe. If the initial diagnosis is confirmed, it would be a huge loss for the Denver offensive line. Max Garcia should move into a starting role at guard in Leary's stead.
Leary injured his ankle in Sunday's game against the Rams and will not return, Kyle Fredrickson of the Denver Post reports.
Leary had to be helped to the sideline and was ruled out soon after. Max Garcia has taken the Memphis product's spot.
Leary (knee) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.
Leary's knee issue was previously reported as unlikely to impact his Week 1 availability and it seems like this notion has been confirmed following his return to practice without limitations. The 29-year-old started 11 games for Denver last season.
