07:17 AM ET 09.17 | Von Miller has become old news in a hurry. Playing six games without their star pass rusher was yesterday's primary Broncos concern. Protecting Peyton Manning is now issue No. 1 after preliminary tests on Ryan Clady's left foot created fear of a serious injury, according to two NFL sources. The Broncos were discussing options Monday on how best to proceed with their all-pro left tackle. The worst-case scenario of season-ending injured reserve is possible. Placing Clady on IR with the designation to return is another option. Designated IR would sideline Clady for a minimum of eight weeks. Either way, Clady will miss significant time because of a Lisfranc injury in the arch of his left foot. ... The more severe Lisfrancs can have a three- to four-month recovery period.

Plenty of other teams have o-line issues too.

Who is Lisfranc anyway?

Dr. Linsfrac, 1848-1893, had infamous problems with his feet, finally succumbing to injuries when attempting to out run a herd of buffaloes in Montana.

The injury has a French name because one usually gets it while retreating.

Is it the top of the foot or the heel or the bottom? Or is it just a fancy way of saying "I got stepped on by a 350 lb. lineman"?

I think he stepped on and slipped on what the Giants were leaving on the field Sunday.

This will hurt... Next man up will be Peyton getting up off the ground another 20 times a game.

Why are the Champs Elysees lined with trees?

So the Germans can march in the shade.

Now I get it....thanks for clearing that up. So most of Jacksonville's players have Lisfranc injuries also?

Maybe, need a second opinion. But here is the really funny part, a petition is going around for the Jags to sign Tebow....

No, they practice in it every week.

They had played very well the past two weeks. Clady will be a lot tougher to replace.

Starter number 3 from last year's O-line bites the dust.
