Clady to Start For the Broncos

Denver Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels confirmed that left tackle Ryan Clady will start on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

"Clady will play," McDaniels said this morning, according to Mike Chambers of the Denver Post. "Ryan (Harris) is getting better every day. Don't think he's (Harris) going to be out there today. We're going to take all week and see what happens, but Clady will definitely play. No question."

Clady partially tore the patellar tendon in his left knee playing basketball in April. Expected to miss 3-to-4 months, Clady returned to start the Broncos' pre-season finale against the Minnesota Vikings earlier this month.

The 6-6, 325-pound Clady was the 12th overall pick of the 2008 NFL Draft out of Boise State. A starter for all 32 games of his NFL career, Clady has earned Pro Bowl honors after each season, and is regarded as one of the top young tackles in the game.

If Harris is unable to start, 2010 second-round pick Zane Beadles is expected to start on the right side.
