Head coach Vance Joseph said Ray is expected to miss 6-8 weeks to recover with a projected return around the time of Broncos' Week 3 game at Buffalo on September 24.

Ray injured the wrist in Thursday's practice, as he tried to shed a block during the Broncos' first full practice of training camp, and he then fell on the wrist again in Friday's practice, but Joseph said Ray had a brace on the wrist and continued to feel discomfort after the workout. Medical tests after practice revealed the torn ligament. (Ray) has the ligament torn that's attached to the same bone that Booker fractured.

Krieger-Coble spent his first National Football League season with the Broncos after joining the team in 2016 as a college free agent. Last season, he had 48 combined tackles including eight sacks.

The Broncos were counting on Ray in a big way this year to take some focus off superstar Von Miller following the retirement of DeMarcus Ware and the offseason hip injury to Shaq Barrett. The Louisville, Ky. native was on the training camp roster in 2015 on a futures contract signed after spending time with the Loveland-based Colorado Ice. An eight-week recovery would put Ray's return somewhere around the Broncos' Week 2 game against the Dallas Cowboys and the Week 3 game at the Buffalo Bills.

The team announced the signing of linebacker Danny Mason, and subsequent release of tight end Henry Krieger-Coble.

"We signed Edebali in the offseason from New Orleans for his rushing skills", Joseph said, "so he's a guy that's going to help us rush from the Sam position and stop the run as far as setting the edge".
