Broncos QB Drew Lock Has Bad Muscle Strain, Could Miss This Week’s Game


According to Tom Pelissero, Broncos QB Drew Lock has a bad muscle strain and bruising around his ribs and has an uphill battle to play in Week 11 against the Dolphins.

Adam Schefter adds there’s no fracture to any of Lock’s ribs and describes his condition as day to day instead of week to week like Pelissero. 

Troy Renck says part of the issue for Denver is they don’t want Lock to play with limited practice time. They’d rather give him the time off to regroup and be able to prepare properly. 

Lock, 24, is a former second-round pick of the Broncos back in 2019. He’s currently in the second year of his four-year, $7,010,820 rookie contract including a $3,118,776 signing bonus. 

In 2020, Lock has appeared in seven games for the Broncos and completed 55 percent of his pass attempts for 1,497 yards, seven touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He’s added 22 carries for 65 yards. 

We’ll have more regarding Lock as the news is available.
