The person spoke to The AP on the condition of anonymity Wednesday because the team hasn't announced the news.
Analysis: It will be the fourth surgery on a wrist Ray dislocated last July, which caused him to miss the opening six games in 2017. He had one sack over the next eight contests before going back on injured reserve. The Broncos didn't pick up the fifth-year option on Ray, who was a first-round selection in 2015. They took pass rusher Bradley Chubb at No. 5 in this year's draft.

Analysis: Ray, the team's top pick in 2015, promised a big bounce-back season after the Broncos selected Chubb with the fifth overall draft pick, something he'll need if he's going to cash in as an unrestricted free agent next March. Ray has started just 15 games in three NFL seasons, collecting 84 tackles, 13 sacks and two fumble recoveries.
