Ray, who didn't participate in OTAs on Monday due to a sore left wrist, could be sidelined until training camp, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports. "[It's] irritated," head coach Vance Joseph said Monday. "So we're not sure [when he'll return]. We're taking it slow, just being smart with guys. It's the spring. So our goal is to get him healthy for training camp. Right now, we're being smart with Shane."

2018

2017

Ray took a big step toward being the kind of rusher general manager John Elway had hoped for when he traded up to take the linebacker at No. 23 overall in the 2015 draft. Known for his superior quickness off the snap, Ray notched four sacks playing a supporting role during Denver's Super Bowl run during his rookie season and then came back with eight sacks, including three in Week 3 against the Bengals, his sophomore season. Ray figures to see more opportunities to get after the passer in 2017 with veteran DeMarcus Ware, who served as a pass-rushing specialist in 2016, now retired. Shaq Barrett, the team's primary backup on the edge, has proven more likely to rotate in on early downs as a strong run defender, preserving Ray for passing downs.

2016

Ray, the Broncos' 2015 first-round pick, recorded four sacks as a rookie and might be in line for a larger role in 2016. Though listed as a second-stringer behind Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware, Ware will likely be used sparingly due to his balky back - leaving Ray and Shaq Barrett to compete for additional snaps. Though he was held without a sack in the playoffs, Ray contributed to Denver's Super Bowl 50 win with his first career forced fumble.
