Date:

Broncos RG Ronald Leary has cleared the concussion protocol.

He's still listed as questionable, but this is a good sign for Leary's chances of playing. The Broncos should have their entire offensive line for Sunday's matchup with Dallas.

Broncos RG Ronald Leary (concussion) is questionable for Week 2 against the Cowboys.

Leary was seen with a helmet on at Thursday's practice but was listed as a DNP for the second straight day. Playing on a short week after beating the Chargers on MNF, Leary may have a hard time getting cleared for Sunday's game against his former team.
Sep 15 - 1:56 PM

Ronald Leary (concussion) returned to practice on Thursday.

This comes just three days after Leary exited Monday night's opener with a concussion. It's unclear if he's cleared the concussion protocol but his presence at practice would suggest Leary is on track to play Sunday against Dallas.
Sep 14 - 2:44 PM

Ronald Leary suffered a concussion Week 1 against the Chargers.

It'll be Connor McGovern taking over at right guard to protect Trevor Siemian's front side. Leary will be hard pressed to clear the protocol on a short week.
Sep 12 - 12:17 AM

New Broncos OG Ronald Leary is playing on the right side in minicamp.

Leary was expected to man the left side when he signed his four-year, $36 million deal in March, but last year's LG Max Garcia was evidently having trouble making the switch to the right. Leary has professed indifference to which side he plays. Leary had a strong year on the left for the Cowboys in 2016.
Jun 13 - 6:34 PM

Broncos agreed to terms with LG Ronald Leary, formerly of the Cowboys, on a four-year, $36 million contract.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports the deal includes $20 million in guaranteed money and makes Leary the fourth-highest paid guard in the league, although Kevin Zeitler and perhaps T.J. Lang and Larry Warford will jump him in the coming hours. Leary is coming off a quality season in Dallas, but the Cowboys were never going to pay him at the top of the guard market with La'el Collins set to return from injury. Leary should be an immediate upgrade on 2016 LG Max Garcia, who the Broncos will likely try to move to the right side. Despite adding Leary, Denver has more work to do along the offensive line, specifically at tackle.
Mar 9 - 12:32 PM

Larry Holder of the New Orleans Times-Picayune believes the Saints "have to take a look" at impending free agent LG Ronald Leary.

The Saints may need to address right guard with Jahri Evans headed for free agency. With Dallas committed to La'El Collins at left guard, Leary will likely be looking for a new team. Leary played well for the Cowboys last year and won't cost as much as T.J. Lang or Kevin Zeitler. Leary turns 28 in April.
Feb 21 - 6:07 PM

Free agent LG Ronald Leary is expected to command $8 million annually.

The Cowboys aren't going to re-sign Leary, but he's one of the top interior linemen available. Leary had solid pass protection ratings at PFF and is a road-grader in the run game. He should draw heavy interest from teams in zone schemes. The Cowboys are moving forward with La’El Collins at left guard.

Impending free agent LG Ronald Leary said it was "exciting to be able to play ball again" down the stretch this season.

Leary was limited to four starts last season and opened this season on the bench behind La’el Collins, but an injury to Collins allowed him to start 13 games including the Divisional Round loss to the Packers. "Going into the season I didn’t think I was going to be playing at all," Leary said. "So I’m glad I was able to remind people I could play ball." The Cowboys are unlikely to re-sign Leary with Collins waiting in the wings, but he should have no shortage of suitors on the open market.
Jan 16 - 10:56 PM

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said the team expects LG Ronald Leary (concussion) to play this week.

Leary exited Week 9 to be evaluated for a concussion in the fourth quarter and never returned. It is still not clear if he was placed in the concussion protocol, but Jones' optimism suggests he avoided injury. Joe Looney replaced Leary on Sunday.

Cowboys LG Ronald Leary exited Week 9 against the Browns with a possible concussion.

He left to be evaluated for a head injury in the fourth quarter. The Cowboys are dominating the Browns, but Leary would be a big loss. Joe Looney is in at guard.

Cowboys OG Ronald Leary remains open to a trade.

"That feeling on my end hasn't changed at all," Leary said, before adding the sides haven't talked about it since the beginning of camp. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Thursday that the Saints had pursued a move, but to "no avail." The Cowboys could be trying to figure out a way to turn Leary into pass rush help, but it's not as if a 27-year-old backup guard will be able to fetch an impact player.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Saints "have pursued" Cowboys OG Ronald Leary "to no avail" over the past few months.

New Orleans has a gaping hole at left guard where Tim Lelito and Senio Kelemete are currently competing for the starting job. Leary publicly requested a trade out of Dallas in the offseason, but the Cowboys weren't satisfied with any offers. Leary has made 35 starts the past three seasons but was demoted to backup duties after the arrival of LG La'El Collins last year. Leary has one year on his contract, but should be starting somewhere. He was Pro Football Focus' No. 2 run-blocking guard out of 78 qualifiers in 2014. Dallas needs pass-rush help.

Cowboys OG Ronald Leary was in attendance for the start of mandatory minicamp on Tuesday.

He would have risked a $76,000 fine for not showing up. Leary skipped OTAs while seeking a trade but the Cowboys couldn't find any takers. The 27-year-old lost his starting job at left guard to rookie La'El Collins last year. Leary will hit free agency after 2016.
