AFC West Notes: Broncos, Chargers, Raiders


Broncos head coach Vic Fangio said after the Hall of Fame game that he wanted to see more out of rookie QB Drew Lock, who went 7-of-11 for 34 yards.

“I was hoping for more, but not surprised,” Fangio said of Lock after the game. “He’s still got a lot of work to do. Thought his accuracy wasn’t clean all the time, along with his reads. But you know, it’s to be expected. We’ve got four more games. We’ve got to get him ready, more ready than he is right now.

For his part, Lock is keeping perspective about his performance and looking forward to learning from the experience. 

I’ll rate it as a learning game,” Lock said, via “There’s definitely things I’ll learn there, but I’m excited that I’m sitting here and that was the first time ever stepping out on the field. It was the Hall of Fame game. It wasn’t the Super Bowl, it wasn’t the playoffs — so there’s a lot of things for me to learn, a lot of things for me to look forward to, to progress a little bit.

  • Mike Klis reports that Broncos LB Joe Jones and DL Billy Winn are undergoing MRIs on Friday and there’s fear of partially torn triceps for both.



Raiders HC Jon Gruden admitted that there’s been some disappointment with WR Antonio Brown‘s inability to practice. 

“I think we’re all disappointed,” Gruden said, per Lindsay Jones. “We want to get the party started.”
