The Denver Broncos have just suffered a crushing blow, as All-Pro left tackle Ryan Clady has reportedly gone down with a season-ending torn left ACL, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Clady, 28, has started 98 of a possible 112 regular season games since entering the league as a first round pick (No. 12 overall) out of Boise State in 2008. Each of those 14 missed contests came in 2013 after the two-time first-team All-Pro left tackle and four-time Pro Bowler suffered a season-ending Lisfranc injury in his left foot.

The 6-foot-6, 315-pound left tackle is coming off a disappointing 2014 campaign, but was expected to shine as one of the biggest beneficiaries of the Broncos’ new offense installed by new coach Gary Kubiak.

Denver will head into training camp with plenty of questions and multiple position battles along the offensive line. Michael Schofield, Chris Clark (Clady’s 2013 replacement) and second round rookie Ty Sambrailo are expected to compete for the two starting jobs at offensive tackle.

Louis Vasquez is penciled in at right guard, though he also has experience playing right tackle for the Broncos. Former Dolphins guard Shelley Smith is slated to start at left guard, with Gino Gradkowski at center.

Ray McDonald has been arrested yet again. No, seriously. Just two days after getting arrested for allegedly assaulting a woman who was holding a baby, the former San Francisco 49ers and Chicago Bears defensive end was arrested on Wednesday after allegedly violating a restraining order, per Katie Nelson of the San Jose Mercury News.

The restraining order was issued following Monday’s arrest and required McDonald to stay away from the residence of his ex-fiancée. This is McDonald’s fifth arrest since 2010 and his fourth arrest in nine months.

Chicago took a chance on him two months ago because of his impressive play from last season, his familiarity with Bears new defensive coordinator Vic Fangio (who served the same role in San Francisco the last four years) and because the first two domestic violence charges against McDonald were ultimately dropped.

But the Bears had no choice but to cut him following Monday’s arrest, and it seems highly unlikely that the soon-to-be 31-year-old will ever play in the NFL again.

In eight seasons (all with the 49ers), the former 2007 third round pick (No. 97 overall) out of the University of Florida has appeared in 115 contests (68 starts) and recorded a total of 210 tackles with 19.5 sacks, 10 pass deflections, four forced fumbles and one interception, which was returned for a touchdown.

Add Cleveland Browns safety Donte Whitner to the growing list of teammates and coaches who have expressed praise for the much-improved work ethic of second-year quarterback Johnny Manziel.

About a month ago, Browns five-time first-team All-Pro left tackle Joe Thomas said the difference in Manziel’s offseason commitment has been “night and day” from where it was last year.

“Last year on a Saturday, you might see a picture of [Johnny] on Instagram floating in a swan drinking champagne,” Thomas told NFL Network in late April. “This year on a Saturday if you came in the building, you’d see him studying his playbook and watching film with his coach. It’s pretty apparent he’s realized how important football is to him.”

Getting that type of praise from a star player and team leader like Thomas is a big deal, especially considering just last month Thomas said Manziel had “lost probably a lot of trust” amongst teammates for the way he handed himself once he became the starter last December.

“I’m hoping when he comes back in April we see a new Johnny and everybody’s blown away with his commitment,” Thomas said back in early April. “And I think he’s got the talent, so it’s just a matter of if he commits himself to it, we can have a really good quarterback on our hands.”

It sounds like Manziel got the message and is taking the necessary steps to resurrect his career. He’s still obviously got a long ways to go, but it looks like he’s off to a great start.

New Browns offensive coordinator John DeFilippo also recently heaped loads of praise on Manziel, using the words “great,” “fantastic” and “awesome” to describe his work ethic after spending 10 weeks in rehab.

“All I know is this: From the moment he stepped in this building,” DeFilippo said, “he’s been nothing but a consummate professional. He’s spent every hour that he’s been allowed to spend in this building.”

Manziel just opened OTAs as the No. 2 QB behind Josh McCown, but we expect him to take over the starting job early in the 2015 season, if he doesn’t already have the job by the end of training camp.

The Houston Texans have been selected for HBO’s Hard Knocks, ESPN’s Tania Ganguli reports.

Houston reportedly emerged as the favorites to be featured on Hard Knocks within the last week.

The Texans were one of nine NFL teams that could’ve been forced to appear on the show this summer (the Titans, Jaguars, Buccaneers, Giants, Redskins, Rams, Browns and Vikings are the other eight teams).

The other 23 NFL teams had the ability to opt out because they either have a first-year head coach, have appeared on the show within the last decade or have made the playoffs within the past two seasons.

Though one team is required to participate in the show every year (a rule that went into effect in 2013), NFL Films, which produces the series, doesn’t want an unwilling participant, like Cleveland.

Seven different NFL teams have been featured in the annual sports-based reality series — the Ravens (2001), Cowboys (2002, 2008), Chiefs (2007), Bengals (2009, 2013), Jets (2010), Dolphins (2012) and Falcons (2014).

The main storylines this August will be centered around superstars J.J. Watt and Arian Foster, as well as the quarterback battle between Ryan Mallett and Brian Hoyer, the health status (and emergence) of Jadeveon Clowney and Brian Cushing, the coaching style of Bill O’Brien and the post-Andre Johnson ascension of DeAndre Hopkins.

Tarik Cohen knows he’s bound to be overlooked as a 5-foot-8, 172-pound running back from North Carolina A&T State University, a Div. II school that few college football fans have ever heard of.

So he’s decided to increase his name recognition by putting together a highlight reel of incredible circus catches.

Cohen recently posted a one-handed backflip catch to Instagram that just caught the attention of ESPN and FOX Sports’ Kristen Balboni, who calls the reception “the best backflip catch of all time.”

Thought I was done ? 😈😎@q_ceasar @22gears

Cohen, who is gearing up for a big junior season, is certainly worth a follow on Instagram.

Barely saw the ball. Hand-eye-coordination on a hunnid!! 👀🏈

Cohen is obviously raising his profile with these incredible circus catches and trick shots, but he also delivers in game action. Over the past two seasons, he’s rushed for a combined 2,527 yards and 23 touchdowns and added 36 receptions for 389 yards and a pair of scores through the air.

Many are now going to be excited to see what he can do in 2015, which was presumably the reason he posted the videos.

The Houston Texans have reportedly emerged as the favorites to be featured on HBO’s Hard Knocks this August, according to ESPN’s Tania Ganguli and John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.

ESPN Cleveland’s Tony Grossi proclaimed early Friday morning that the Texans, Redskins and Bills were each in the mix, but ESPN’s John Keim has since reported that Washington is not in consideration.

Though Bills new head coach Rex Ryan an affinity for the spotlight, the fact that Buffalo has a new coaching staff in place seems to reduce its chances of appearing on the show later this summer.

Cleveland was considered the heavy favorite to be featured on Hard Knocks earlier this spring, but the Browns emphatically stated their opposition to appearing on the show at NFL meetings in late March.

According to Grossi, the main reason for their opposition “was to protect quarterback Johnny Manziel’s private recovery from an offseason drug and alcohol rehabilitation stint.”

Manziel’s stint in rehab ended in early April, and he’s since received loads of praise for his improved work ethic.

The Browns are one of nine NFL teams that can be forced to appear onto the show this summer (the Titans, Texans, Jaguars, Buccaneers, Giants, Redskins, Rams and Vikings are the other eight teams).

The other 23 NFL teams have the ability to opt out because they either have a first-year head coach, have appeared on the show within the last decade or have made the playoffs within the past two seasons.

Though one team is required to participate in the show every year (a rule that went into effect in 2013), NFL Films, which produces the series, doesn’t want an unwilling participant and is expected to grant Cleveland’s wish.

Seven different NFL teams have been featured in the annual sports-based reality series — the Ravens (2001), Cowboys (2002, 2008), Chiefs (2007), Bengals (2009, 2013), Jets (2010), Dolphins (2012) and Falcons (2014).

If the Texans end up on the show, the main storylines would presumably be centered around superstars J.J.

What’s it like to play for Pete Carroll? Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett was just asked that very question and he gave a very interesting and amusing answer.

“I would say he’s like playing for Willy Wonka,” Bennett told John Canzano of 750 AM The Game in Portland. “He’s crazy. He wants to be young. He’s just one of those guys who’s always upbeat and just wants to have a good time because he lets you be yourself.”

Canzano responded by saying it’s difficult to imagine Bennett “playing for a stiff.”

“I’ve done it before, and it’s not fun. His name is Greg Schiano,” Bennett said.

Now that’s cold, but Bennett’s unconventional responses are always refreshing.

“He’s a great coach, but he was just hard on everybody,” Bennett said of Schiano. “He comes from a different type of background — real military-style like, the 1996 Belichick. He’s really tough. Overall I think his football knowledge is pretty good.”

It’s worth noting that Schiano plans on being a different coach when he returns to the sideline.

Bennett also gave an amusing comment when the topic of the agonizing Super Bowl XLIX loss came up and whether or not star running back Marshawn Lynch should’ve been given the ball.

“The inch that mattered,” Bennett said. “A lot of women understand that.”

Michael’s younger brother, Chicago Bears tight end Martellus Bennett, also one of the NFL’s most quotable players. Back in 2013, he also compared his coach to Willy Wonka.

“I always say Coach (Marc) Trestman reminds me of the first Willy Wonka,” Bennett said. “Not the Johnny Depp one; the Johnny Depp one was really cool. But the first one. Before that. The 1943 version.”

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater put together an impressive rookie season, throwing for 2,919 yards with a 14:12 TD-to-INT ratio with a 64.4 completion rate, 11th-best in the league.

Lauded as ESPN’s top-ranked second-year breakout candidate, Bridgewater has his sights set on following in the footsteps of the NFL’s all-time passing yards leader and soon-to-be first-ballot Hall of Famer Brett Favre.

“If I could be like any other quarterback that played in the National Football League, I would have to say Brett Favre is the guy,” Bridgewater told Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

“Besides the injuries and the hits and everything, he had a pretty successful career. He’s a Hall of Famer for sure, multiple Super Bowls, and that’s something that I look forward to doing. Hopefully, I can win more Super Bowls (than Favre).”

Hoisting multiple Lombardi Trophies would unquestionably make Bridgewater an iconic figure in the NFL, but the 2014 Pepsi Rookie of the Year is only interested in emulating Favre’s on-field play.

“I hate to consider myself a celebrity,” Bridgewater said. “I’m still a quarterback in the National Football League. I shy away from celebrity status because I don’t want to be known as that guy. But I had a chance to partake in the events and the festivities of the Kentucky Derby, and that was a huge honor.”

Bridgewater’s focused on leading the Vikings to their first Super Bowl victory in their 54-year history.

“The ultimate goal, and that’s why you play this game,” Bridgewater said. “You play to the game to win, and that’s why I’m in Minnesota.”

Denver Broncos defensive end Antonio Smith is reportedly under investigation for alleged child abuse.

According to the report, Fort Bend County district attorney John Healey Jr. confirmed its child abuse division is handling the case against Smith.

“Our Sheriff’s Office has received some information, they’re working with our office to try and find out as much information as we can about the allegation,” Healey said, via 9News in Denver.

“At this particular point anything in reference to Mr. Smith is just that — an allegation.”

According to TMZ, the accuser claims there are multiple incidents dating back to 2010.

“We’re trying to discern the truth from the untruthfulness of the claim to decide what charges, if any, will be filed,” Healey told TMZ.

A rep for the Broncos told TMZ that the team just became aware of the allegation Wednesday night.

The versatile 33-year-old defensive end signed a one-year, $2 million contract with the Broncos in early April. A former 2004 fifth round pick (No. 135 overall) out of Oklahoma State, the “Ninja Assassin” has appeared in 157 contests (133 starts) and recorded a total 302 tackles with 44.5 sacks, eight pass deflections and 11 forced fumbles in 11 seasons with the Cardinals (2004-08), Texans (2009-13) and Raiders (2014).

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced on Wednesday that the league is looking to hold regular season games in Mexico and Germany, as noted by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

It’s yet to be determined how soon this could happen, but it’s definitely an interesting topic to keep your eye on in the coming weeks and months.

“We had an international update on the tremendous growth we are seeing in our game on a global basis, not just the United Kingdom,” Goodell said (see the transcript here). “It was a great discussion on Mexico, Germany and also into South America so we’re very positive about that.

“Particularly in Germany, we know there is some interest in playing a game over there. We know there is a renewed interest in playing a game in Mexico – a regular season game. I think we will evaluate that. There’s been some interest in playing a Pro Bowl in Rio. So we are going to evaluate all those. There’s a growing passion for our game on a global basis and we want to respond it. We want to respond to it in the right way, in the right markets we think are a priority for us, so we can continue to grow this great game. We are excited about where we are. We are excited about the passion for our game and taking it to another level.”
