ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- The Denver Broncos' excitement over their scorching start is tempered by a serious injury to All-Pro left tackle Ryan Clady and the specter of being without Peyton Manning's protector on the blindside for a lengthy time.

Clady might miss the rest of the season or at least a good chunk of it with a sprained left foot.

While the team hasn't specified the exact nature or extent of his injury, it's believed to be a Lisfranc sprain, which usually involves a separation of ligaments and joints in the bottom of the foot and requires an arduous rehab.

The Broncos already have been without two of their other stars. All-Pro linebacker Von Miller is serving a six-game suspension and perennial Pro Bowl cornerback Champ Bailey (foot) hasn't practiced since Aug. 17.
