Broncos QBs Lock, Rypien, Bortles ruled out for 12 weeks after being judged to be a high-risk, close relationship


The Denver Broncos ’busy week culminated in an unprecedented twist.

Starting quarterback Drew Lock and backups Brett Rypien and Blake Bortles were disqualified for week 12 after being seen as a high-risk relationship with Jeff Driskel, James Palmer of the NFL Network reported from an informed source. Driskel was on the reserve / COVID-19 list on Thursday after receiving a positive result.

IF Rapoport, a NFL Network Insider report, says practicing squad buyer Kendall Hinton is expected to play a lot in the position. Hinton, the unspoken rookie, played QB during his five-year chance at Wake Forest.

Palmer and Rapoport reported earlier in the day that the three QBs had been pulled out of Saturday’s practice for further evaluation as part of a close contact follow-up with Driskel.
