The former University of Colorado offensive lineman had a shot at making the Denver Broncos' roster as a backup guard and center.
He was getting out of his cart to hit his ball recently when a trailing cart clipped him, resulting in an injury to the same ankle he had surgically repaired after a preseason injury in Denver last year.
McChesney spent time with the Dolphins, Jets and Rams, playing in four NFL games.
