The team placed Clady on injured reserve on Wednesday and signed veteran Winston Justice, a former second round pick of the Philadelphia Eagles to replace him.  Justice started 12 games for the Indianapolis Colts last season. Clady suffered the injury during Sunday’s 41-23 win at the New York Giants.  A lisfranc injury is when the bones and ligaments in the foot tear.  It is often mistaken as a simple sprain of the foot.
