The Denver Broncos won't have any of their four quarterbacks available Sunday when they face the New Orleans Saints because of coronavirus concerns. Starter Drew Lock, backup Brett Rypien and practice squad veteran Blake Bortles were deemed high-risk close contacts with No. 3 quarterback Jeff Driskel on Wednesday, the day before Driskel tested positive for COVID-19. A person familiar with the league's investigation, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss the sensitive topic, said the four quarterbacks apparently weren't wearing their masks the whole time they were together as required by the league's pandemic protocols.
The Denver Broncos have no quarterbacks. The San Francisco 49ers have no home stadium or practice facility. The COVID-19 pandemic caused major disruptions around the NFL on Saturday, again calling into question the league's plan to play a full schedule after several weeks that went relatively smoothly.
