With All-Pro Ryan Clady out, Broncos turn to Chris Clark to protect Peyton Manning's blindside

Chris Clark has a message for all those Denver Broncos fans fretting that their Super Bowl aspirations could be derailed by Ryan Clady's foot injury: Relax, I got this.

Clady, the three-time Pro Bowler, two-time All-Pro and former first-round draft pick who has protected Peyton Manning's blindside since the four-time MVP arrived in Denver last season, is expected to miss at least a couple of months with a sprained left foot.

Clark, a fifth-year journeyman who went undrafted and spent his first two NFL seasons on the practice squad, will get his first career start at left tackle Monday night when the Broncos (2-0) host the Oakland Raiders (1-1).
