AFC Notes: Broncos, Chargers, Colts



  • Broncos QB Drew Lock said he expects to undergo MRI on his shoulder, but they “will proceed with a little more caution.” (Troy Renck)
  • Lock did, however, add that he’s optimistic about his situation moving forward: “We’re going to take it day by day. I’m optimistic about it.” (Ryan O’Halloran)
  • According to Lock, his shoulder “felt funny” while throwing a ball on the sideline: “I’ve been throwing the football my whole life and it felt funny.


  • Chargers HC Anthony Lynn told reporters that he found out QB Tyrod Taylor was unavailable to play on Sunday just before the coin toss. (Jeff Miller)
  • Lynn mentioned that Taylor is at the hospital and he doesn’t have any more information beyond that. 
  • According to Lynn, Taylor was suffering from “chest pains.” (Daniel Popper)
  • Lynn did make it clear that Taylor would be their starter if he’s healthy: “If he’s 100 percent ready to go, he’s our starter.” (Jim Trotter)
  • Chargers rookie QB Justin Herbert said he found out 5-10 seconds before kickoff from Lynn that he’d be starting. (Kalyn Kahler)
  • Lynn said of Mike Pouncey being placed on season-ending injured reserve last week: “We might make him an assistant coach this year. Who knows.” (Daniel Popper)
  • Aaron Wilson reports that the Chargers will work out free agent OL Brady Aiello next week. 


  • Per Andrew Walker of the team website, Colts CB Rock Ya-Sin was deactivated for Week 2 with an apparent illness.
  • A report from Mark Maske of the Washington Post indicated that while no players tested positive for COVID-19 in Saturday’s round of testing, one player woke up with a fever Sunday and would not play out of an abundance of caution.
  • It appeared the player could be Ya-Sin, as he was not on the injury report this week and played more than 90 percent of the snaps for Indianapolis in Week 1. 
  • However, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports Ya-Sin doesn’t have a fever and instead has a stomach illness. The Colts confirmed that in a statement, adding Ya-Sin was receiving treatment at a local hospital. 
  • According to Ian Rapoport, Colts WR Parris Campbell did not tear his ACL on Sunday and will undergo an MRI Monday to determine the full extent.
