USATODAY — Denver Broncos offensive guard Ron Leary missed the final five games of the 2017 season with a foot injury. As a precaution, the Broncos held Leary out of OTAs and minicamp this spring so he could fully recover.
It sounds like Denver made the right decision.
Appearing on Orange & Blue 760, the team’s official radio station, Leary said he will be ready to go when training camp begins later this month.
“I’m good now, I’ll be there, July 27th like everybody else ready to roll!” Leary told Brandon Krisztal and Matt McChesney on Thursday.
Leary, 29, signed a four-year, $36 million contract with the Broncos last offseason. He played right guard last season with Max Garcia on the left side. This year, it wouldn’t be surprising if Leary is moved to left guard, his more natural position.
If Leary does move to the left side, third-year guard Connor McGovern could potentially start on the right side, sending Garcia to the bench.
Leary allowed two sacks in 11 games last season, per STATS.
