Ray (wrist) was officially placed on injured reserve Tuesday, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.
As expected, Ray will be shut down for the Broncos' final two games after undergoing his third surgery on his left wrist in four months last Friday. Rather than playing through pain while the Broncos are already removed from playoff contention, Ray will instead turn his focus to rehabbing the injury and regaining strength in his hand. Shaquil Barrett is expected to move into a starting role opposite Von Miller at outside linebacker while Ray is unavailable.
Ray (wrist) is expected to be placed on injured reserve, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.
Ray underwent surgery last Friday, according to Cecil Lammey of 104.3 The Fan, and ultimately needed two screws inserted into his injured left wrist. It isn't clear how long his recovery may take, and it's therefore uncertain that he'll make it back for the start of offseason workouts this coming spring. For the time being, Denver will likely try to replace Ray's production with a combination of Shaquil Barrett and DeMarcus Walker.
Ray (illness/wrist) is active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
Ray missed the Broncos' first six games of the season while recovering from wrist surgery, and it appears he may have suffered a setback in last week's loss to the Raiders. Even so, neither the injury nor the illness Ray battled this week was severe enough to keep him sidelined, so the expectation is that the linebacker will serve in his usual role as an edge rusher opposite Von Miller.
Ray (illness/wrist) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Zac Stevens of BSNDenver.com reports.
Despite failing to practice in any capacity Thursday or Friday, Ray remains confident that he'll be able to shake off the illness and wrist injury to suit up Sunday, according to Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post. Working on the opposite site of perennial Pro Bowler Von Miller since returning from injured reserve midseason, Ray hasn't made much of an impact, accruing 12 tackles and a sack in five games.
Ray (wrist/ankle) is active for Sunday's matchup with Oakland.
Though Ray was listed as questionable, he was expected to play, making his active status predictable. Though he may not be at 100 percent health, he's good enough to give it a go, and he'll be expected to see his normal role in the starting defensive lineup.
