Denver Broncos head coach John Fox reveals that tackle Ryan Clady is on course to return from shoulder surgery in time for the start of the 2013 NFL season.

John Fox has said that Ryan Clady is on target to return in time for the start of the 2013 NFL season.

The Denver Broncos tackle has been recovering from off-season shoulder surgery, but was able to take his first reps during full-team practices this weekend.

The head coach told the team's official website: "[We are] still trying to get Ryan ready for the season opener. At this stage, I think everything is on target."

Offensive coordinator Adam Gase added: "He's on it mentally, I'm not worried about that. When he's ready to go physically, we'll be ready to throw him in there. But until they give us the green light and he's all cleared, we're not going to rush him out there."

Clady signed a new contract with the Broncos last month.
