Broncos OLB Shane Ray Out with Toe Injury

Denver Broncos rookie camp at Dove Valley

Outside linebacker Shane Ray, the Broncos’ first round draft choice, sat out the team’s first organized team activity session Wednesday at Dove Valley, Tom Kensler of the Denver Post reports.

But Broncos coach Gary Kubiak does not believe Ray will be sidelined much longer. Ray, 6-foot-3 and 245 pounds, is recovering from a turf toe injury suffered at the end of his final college season at Missouri.

“He’s close,” Kubiak said. “I think next week you’ll see him do some individual (work) and those types of things. We fitted him with some orthotics. He’s feeling good. He’s done some work. He’s done a lot of treatment.”

Ray said he feels like he could get back on the field by the end of this week. “But it’s a process and it’s not something we want to rush. We want to make sure that when I do come back, I can be me.”

    Have you ever made a mistake in your life? A lot of hands should have just been raised really high. The better question is, have you made a mistake that cost you millions of dollars? Ok, now I’m not so sure I’m seeing as many hands raised :). This 21 year old kid made a costly mistake, but just like many of us, it’s the mistakes we make that help us grow. John Elway recognized this on draft night (heck, he had a similar experience when not 1, but 2 of his entourage in the front office got busted for off the clock drinking issues). So, he traded up to draft arguably one of the best (if not the best pass rusher in the draft). It’s hard to find difference makers in the latter part of the 1st round and he may have done it in back to back years (last year with Roby). One of the things that others have argued was a reason for his slide was the toe. That’s interesting because he’s back at OTA’s just about a month after the draft (makes you wonder if these team doctors are as great as their pay grade or if that was an excuse teams have floated just in case he ends up being a star not playing for their team). The other thing I have found interesting this off season is the night and day difference between Coach Phillips and Coach Del Rio. And I’m not just talking about their mannerisms. Coach Phillips is like the smart kid in school who challenges the bully to a spelling bee to settle their differences. He’s a cut above. Let’s see Bronco Nation, what would you rather…a coach that’s idea of winning defense is 3 man rushes (yes, that’s right Rahim I got your back), or a guy who wants to use his 3 best pass rushers in any package possible and blitz 5-6 guys if possible at any time? Especially when you have 3 pro bowlers and arguably the best secondary in the league, the answer really is pretty simple. How good this defense can be with Shane Ray (another year of Roby) and Coach Phillips added to the mix is scary… close your eyes and start thinking about how our last few seasons ended….ok now open them, the nightmare is over and a new season upon us, buckle up, it’s going to be an exciting ride!!
