All indications were that Lock was going to make his first NFL start this weekend after getting the majority of the first-team reps in practice this week.
Lock, 22, was selected with the No. 42 overall pick in the second round of this year’s draft by the Broncos out of Missouri. He agreed to a four-year, $7,010,820 rookie contract including a $3,118,776 signing bonus.
The Broncos placed Lock on injured reserve coming out of the preseason with a thumb injury.
During his four-year college career at Missouri, Lock threw for 12,193 yards, 99 touchdowns, and 39 interceptions. He also added 437 yards rushing and nine touchdowns.
