After losing quarterback Drew Lock to a shoulder injury, the Denver Broncos will likely consider looking at free agent quarterbacks available. Broncos general manager John Elway will also likely take a look at the quarterbacks on other teams’ practice squads.
Driskel was signed during free agency to serve as Lock’s backup this season and he played relatively well against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. Driskel is the most likely candidate to start for Denver in Week 3.
Rypien is a second-year quarterback who spent most of last season on the team’s practice squad. Rypien is back on the practice squad this year but he will likely be activated to the 53-man roster this week, unless the Broncos bring in a notable backup to serve as QB2 behind Driskel.
Denver should learn more about the severity of Lock’s injury today and then start making decisions at quarterback. If Lock is expected to miss multiple games, the Broncos could place him on injured reserve and have him return to the active roster three weeks later.
Expect the team to start making moves at QB in the coming days.
