Ike grad Ryan Clady injures knee playing basketball

Denver Broncos All-Pro left tackle Ryan Clady, an Eisenhower High School graduate, injured his knee in a basketball game over the weekend, according to this Denver Post story, will miss three months but is hoping to be ready for the start of the NFL season.

The 12th overall pick out of Boise State in the 2008 NFL draft partially tore his patellar tendon but because it was only 50 percent torn the surgery performed Tuesday in Denver will likely cause him to miss nothing more than the preseason.

Clady allowed the fewest sacks among tackles as a rookie and last year became the 11th tackle to earn Pro Bowl honors in his second season.
