  • Broncos' Brett Rypien: Returning to backup role

    Rypien will serve as the backup to Russell Wilson in Sunday's contest against the Rams after head coach Nathaniel Hackett confirmed that Wilson cleared the concussion protocol and will reclaim starting duties following a one-game absence, Zack Kelberman of SI.com reports. Wilson actually cleared the five-step protocol last Friday, but his lack of practice time leading up to the team's Week 15 contest prompted the Broncos to hold him out of the matchup with the Cardinals. Rypien proceeded to pick up his second start of the season and guided the Broncos to a 24-15 win, completing 21 of 26 pass attempts for 197 yards, a touchdown and an interception. Though Rypien helped Denver end a five-game losing streak, he never appeared to be a serious threat to earn more starts over a healthy Wilson, given what the Broncos invested into acquiring the former Seattle quarterback this past offseason.

  • Broncos' Brett Rypien: Manages Denver to victory

    Rypien completed 21 of 26 passes for 197 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Sunday's 24-15 win over the Cardinals. Rypien was filling in for the injured Russell Wilson (concussion) and managed the game effectively. He threw almost exclusively in the short areas of the field -- his longest completion went for only 19 yards -- and his lone touchdown of the game came on a three-yard touchdown toss to Eric Tomlinson midway through the fourth quarter. Wilson cleared concussion protocol ahead of Sunday's win, so it's likely that Rypien will return to a backup role for a Week 16 matchup against the Rams.

  • Broncos' Brett Rypien: Named Week 15 starter

    Rypien will start Sunday against the Cardinals, as Russell Wilson (concussion) has been ruled out, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports. Wilson successfully passed concussion protocol, but the 3-10 Broncos will keep their pricey starting quarterback out in Week 15 out of an abundance of caution. As a result, Rypien will be tabbed for his second start of the season at home against a Cardinals defense that's giving up a league-high 26.8 points per game.

  • Broncos' Brett Rypien: Shaky in relief Sunday

    Rypien completed four of eight passes for 16 yards and a touchdown with an interception after replacing Russell Wilson (concussion) late in Sunday's 34-28 loss to Kansas City. Entering the game with about 12 minutes left in the fourth quarter and the ball at the Kansas City 16-yard line, Rypien wrapped up the drive with a seven-yard TD strike to Jerry Jeudy. It proved to be Denver's final points of the game, however, and Rypien's subsequent possessions featured a three-and-out in which he fumbled a snap but was able to recover it, and then an INT that effectively ended the game. If Wilson's concussion keeps him sidelined Week 15, Rypien would make his second start of the year against a Cardinals defense that was tied for last in the league in TD passes allowed coming into Week 14.

  • Broncos' Brett Rypien: Can't get offense on track

    Rypien completed 24 of 46 passes for 225 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's 16-9 loss to the Jets. Rypien earned his second career start in the absence of Russell Wilson (hamstring), though the Broncos showed no signs of curtailing their passing volume. He started the game in promising fashion by leading Denver to a touchdown on its third offensive possession, though that was the majority of the scoring for the team on the day. Despite averaging only 4.9 yards per attempt, Rypien also managed to keep his primary pass catchers involved, as Jerry Jeudy earned 11 targets and Courtland Sutton nine. Wilson is optimistic that he'll return for a Week 8 matchup against the Jaguars, and if that's the case, Rypien will revert to his backup role.

  • Broncos' Brett Rypien: Will start Week 7

    Rypien is set to start the Broncos' Week 7 matchup against the Jets, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. With Russell Wilson (hamstring) sidelined, Rypien will get the starting nod for Denver. He last saw action in Week 16 of the 2021 season for the Broncos, but this will mark his first meaningful time on the field.

  • Broncos' Brett Rypien: Shines in loss

    Rypien completed 22 of 26 passes for 191 yards and one touchdown while adding nine yards on three carries in Saturday's 42-15 loss to the Bills. Rypien entered the contest in the second half when the Broncos were already trailing the Bills 35-6, but the fourth-year signal caller made the most of his opportunity. The 26-year-old finds himself in a battle for the No. 2 quarterback spot with veteran Josh Johnson, the latter of whom signed with Denver this offseason. Based on the Broncos' first preseason game against the Cowboys, it seemed Johnson was beginning to separate himself in the competition, but Rypien's impressive performance against Buffalo will likely turn the heat up on the battle for the backup spot. If he has another solid performance in Denver's third preseason game against Minnesota on Aug. 27, Rypien could make a push for the No. 2 role as the coaching staff makes its final roster decisions ahead of the 2022 campaign.

  • Broncos' Brett Rypien: Signs tender

    Rypien signed his one-year exclusive rights tender Monday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports. Rypien spent the majority of the 2021 season as the Broncos' No. 3 signal-caller behind Teddy Bridgewater and Drew Lock, appearing in just one game and logging three snaps in total. Even with Bridgewater (Miami) and Lock (Seattle) in new locations, Rypien's outlook won't change much in 2022. The Broncos acquired Russell Wilson from the Seahawks earlier in the offseason, while Josh Johnson looks like the favorite for the backup role after he was brought aboard in March on a one-year, $1.3 million deal.

  • Broncos' Brett Rypien: Tendered by Broncos

    The Broncos extended a contract tender to Rypien on Sunday. Rypien played just three offensive snaps during the 2021 campaign and failed to complete either of his two pass attempts. As an exclusive rights free agent, he'll return to Denver in 2022 to serve as a reserve to Russell Wilson.

  • Broncos' Brett Rypien: Won't suit up Sunday

    Rypien (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chargers. With Drew Lock back off the reserve/COVID-19 list, Rypien slides back down the depth chart. He has not appeared in a game this season.

  • Broncos' Brett Rypien: Ascends to No. 2 role Week 9

    Rypien will serve as the backup quarterback behind starter Teddy Bridgewater in Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Nick Kosmider of The Athletic reports. Aside from exiting early in Week 4 with a concussion, Bridgewater has been healthy and has started every game this season, resulting in Rypien being a fixture on the inactive list as the team's No. 3 quarterback. However, with top backup Drew Lock moving to the reserve/COVID-19 list Sunday, Rypien will get the chance to dress Week 9. The Broncos haven't revealed whether Lock tested positive for the virus or if he was ruled out for contact tracing, making it unclear if Rypien will remain the No. 2 signal-caller beyond this week.

  • Broncos' Brett Rypien: Gets one start in sophomore season

    Rypien completed 27 of 40 passes for 295 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions during the 2020 season. He lost five yards on five carries. Rypien started the season as QB3 but impressed enough in relief in Week 3's loss to Tampa Bay to get the start for the injured Drew Lock in Week 4's win versus the Jets. Rypien kept New York in that game with a handful of poor decisions but he also made some big plays downfield, most notably a 48-yard deep shot to Jerry Jeudy for a touchdown. At that point, Rypien became Denver's QB2. Whether he stays there depends on the offseason. The Broncos are almost certainly going to look for competition for Lock either in free agency or the draft. That could push Rypien down a slot heading into 2021.

  • Broncos' Brett Rypien: Returns from COVID-19 list

    Rypien was activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports. Following an unprecedented situation that led to practice squad wide receiver Kendall Hinton playing quarterback in Sunday's loss to the Saints, things are back to normal in Denver. Rypien, Drew Lock and Blake Bortles have all been restored from the COVID-19 list. Lock will start under center in the Week 13 matchup against the Chiefs.

  • Broncos' Brett Rypien: Could start versus Jets on Thursday

    Coach Vic Fangio relayed Monday that he hasn't decided whether Rypien or Jeff Driskel will start against the Jets on Thursday, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports. With Drew Lock (shoulder) out, Driskel started this past Sunday's loss against the Buccaneers, but he was replaced by Rypien after recording just 5.9 yards per attempt, a touchdown and an interception. Rypien was more accurate and just as efficient, completing eight of nine passes for 53 yards (5.9 YPA) and an interception in his first NFL action. The two may compete during the practice week, and Fangio was clear that Blake Bortles isn't in the starting conversation at this time.

  • Brett Rypien: Set for No. 2 QB duties with Denver

    Head coach Vic Fangio said Thursday that the Broncos intend to call Rypien up from the practice squad to serve as the team's backup quarterback Sunday against the Buccaneers, Nick Kosmider of The Athletic reports. Though the Broncos will delay placing Drew Lock (shoulder) on injured reserve, the team's starting signal-caller is still expected to miss at least two games. Denver signed Blake Bortles earlier this week to add some experienced depth at the position while Lock is sidelined, but Fangio suggested Bortles likely won't be ready to serve as anything more than an emergency option at quarterback Sunday, if he's even active for the contest. Since Rypien has familiarity with the Broncos' system after spending the past year and a half with the organization as a member of the offseason roster, 53-man roster or practice squad, Fangio views him as an ideal backup in the short term for Jeff Driskel, who will start in place of Lock in Week 3. Rypien could return to the practice squad as soon as Week 4, when Bortles will presumably be up to speed with the new playbook.

  • Broncos' Brett Rypien: Signs future deal

    Rypien signed a reserve/future contract with the Broncos on Monday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. The 23-year-old spent most of November on the 53-man roster but was waived and rejoined the practice squad once Drew Locke (thumb) came off injured reserve. Joe Flacco's return from a neck injury isn't guaranteed, which could leave Rypien and Brandon Allen to fight for the backup job behind Locke.

  • Brett Rypien: Sticking in Denver

    Rypien is signing with the Broncos' practice squad, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. The 23-year-old was waived by the team over the weekend with Drew Lock (thumb) returning from injured reserve, but he'll remain with Denver on the practice squad after clearing waivers. Rypien didn't see the field during his month-long stint on the 53-man roster.

  • Brett Rypien: Lands on Denver's practice squad

    Rypien signed with the Broncos' practice squad on Sunday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. Rypien was in contention for the No. 2 job behind Joe Flacco with Drew Lock (thumb) sidelined, but the Broncos ended up claiming Brandon Allen off waivers to fill the role. Rypien completed 27 of 44 passes for 207 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions in three preseason games.

  • Broncos' Brett Rypien: Serviceable in exhibition finale

    Rypien completed eight of 11 attempts for 86 yards with no touchdowns and one interception in the Broncos' 20-7 preseason win over the Cardinals on Thursday. He also lost two yards on his two rushes. Rypien got his interception out of the way early, as he was picked off at the Cardinals' 43 yard-line on his first drive. Then, following a four-play, 75-yard touchdown drive on which Rypien failed to throw a pass, he bounced back to help lead an 11-play, 73-yard march that culminated in a field goal. The Boise State product remains in contention for the No. 2 job behind Joe Flacco to open the season as a result of Drew Lock (thumb) being on the shelf, with Kevin Hogan serving as Rypien's competition for that role.

  • Broncos' Brett Rypien: Enters backup competition

    Coach Vic Fangio said Wednesday that Rypien is competing for the backup quarterback job, Zac Stevens of BSNDenver.com reports. Rypien's opportunity comes with rookie second-round pick Drew Lock (thumb) expected to miss the start of the regular season. Lock is guaranteed a spot on the 53-man roster and appears destined for the backup gig at some point, but Rypien could earn the No. 2 role to begin the regular season if he's able to beat out Kevin Hogan.
