Running back Melvin Gordon III apologized Wednesday for an Oct. 13 drunken driving arrest in his first public comments since getting pulled over for speeding after a night out in downtown Denver. “I am sorry I was even in that situation,” Gordon said in a video call with reporters, adding that he kept silent about his arrest until now for legal reasons, not ambivalence. Gordon faces a possible three-game suspension from the NFL over his DUI arrest, something he said he wasn’t concerned about as he prepares to face his former team, the Los Angeles Chargers (2-5), on Sunday.
Drew Lock didn’t help in that sense considering he threw two interceptions, but everyone knows the offense must be better, and Lock is taking full responsibility. I could have done a lot better of a job on Sunday, complete easy passes, work through my progressions better, trust our o-line a little more, and that’s fully my plan this week. I’m excited to go do that,” he said.
As the Broncos began to prepare for the Chargers, they were without five key contributors at Wednesday's practice. Wide receiver Tim Patrick (hamstring), running back Phillip Lindsay (concussion), defensive end Shelby Harris (illness), wide receiver/return specialist Diontae Spencer (shoulder) and tackle Demar Dotson (not injury related) did not practice on Wednesday.
