Broncos' Drew Lock: Will miss start of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lock (thumb) will be sidelined for the start of the regular season, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

It was already reported that Lock had suffered a thumb sprain and was going to miss some time, but now Lock is on track to be out for the start of his rookie season. This isn't too surprising given that it is a thumb sprain on Lock's throwing hand and now, Kevin Hogan is in line to secure the backup quarterback job behind Joe Flacco for the start of the regular season.

Broncos' Drew Lock: Escapes with thumb sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lock said he suffered "just a little sprain" on his right thumb, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Lock's position makes the injury a much bigger deal than it would be for other players, but he at least seems to have avoided a long-term issue after X-rays on his right hand came back negative. Missed time in practice and/or the final two weeks of the preseason could help Kevin Hogan secure the No. 2 spot at quarterback -- something that already was being discussed the past few weeks. Lock has produced just 254 yards on 51 pass attempts (5.0 YPA) this preseason, but Hogan (3.5 YPA) somehow has been even worse.

Broncos' Drew Lock: X-rays come back negative
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lock (hand) underwent X-rays on his right hand and they have come back negative, Mike Klis of reports.

This is good news for the rookie quarterback, who exited Monday's contest against the 49ers early in the third quarter. Still, there's a good chance the Broncos opt to give Lock some extra time off to recover with a little under three weeks left until the regular season kicks off. Should Lock miss time, look for Kevin Hogan and Brett Rypien to absorb some extra reps.

Broncos' Drew Lock: Injures hand
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lock is questionable to return to Monday's preseason game against the 49ers due to a hand injury, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Lock suffered the injury early in the third quarter when he appeared to fall on his left hand while scrambling to avoid pressure. The severity of the rookie second-rounder's injury remains unknown at this time, but the signal-caller reportedly could continue taking snaps into the fourth quarter if he's cleared to return.

Broncos' Drew Lock: Shows improvement in Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lock completed 17 of 28 passes for 180 yards, a touchdown and an interception during Thursday's 22-14 preseason loss to Seattle. He added 11 yards on three carries. After the game, head coach Vic Fangio said that Lock "threw it pretty damn good," Aric DiLalla of the team's official site reports.

Lock looked less jittery than his preseason opener and delivered a couple of highlights, including a third-down conversion that was in Troy Fumagalli's hands before he even turned out of his route, and a threaded two-point conversion to Juwann Winfree. The rookie second-rounder still struggled under pressure, particularly on a play in which he drifted into the end zone and was sacked for a safety, but Fangio saw progress. Combined with a brief, unimpressive outing by Kevin Hogan, Lock seems to be moving toward the No. 2 spot.

Broncos' Drew Lock: Serviceable in HOF Game win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lock completed seven of 11 pass attempts for 34 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in the Broncos' 14-10 preseason win over the Falcons on Thursday. He also rushed once for six yards.

The rookie entered the contest with 13:49 left in the second quarter and misfired on his first three attempts before hitting Nick Williams for his first completion. Lock ended up connecting on six of his subsequent seven passes as well, but he averaged a meager 3.1 yards per attempt. Lock also took two sacks in what was a middling performance overall, but the second-round pick at least got plenty of work in. Given that he's considered a high-upside prospect that nevertheless still needs a fair amount of seasoning, Lock figures to be in for another extended audition against the Seahawks next Thursday in the Broncos' second exhibition.

Broncos' Drew Lock: To come off bench Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lock will back up Kevin Hogan on Thursday in the preseason opener against Atlanta, Zac Stevens of BSN Denver reports.

Lock has reportedly had some of the Broncos quarterbacks' most dazzling highs and head-scratching lows, but is still listed as Denver's No. 3 quarterback. Head coach Vic Fangio has cautioned that, outside the first team, the depth chart is not necessarily indicative of standing, so it's unclear whether Lock has taken a step back in his development, or if the coaching staff is simply making him earn the backup job over the veteran Hogan. The picture will become clearer Thursday as both quarterbacks figure to play against future backups and camp bodies.

Broncos' Drew Lock: Is clear "1B" quarterback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Despite comments by head coach Vic Fangio tempering expectations, Lock has clearly been the best passer behind Joe Flacco to start training camp, Benjamin Allbright of KOA News Radio reports.

Allbright and others have expounded that, while Lock has made some bone-headed decisions in practice, he has also made many of the offense's highlight throws and shown improvement along the way. Fangio described Lock as more of a hard thrower than a pitcher at this juncture, but reports from the practice field show that Lock is about where many expected him to be. Whether that is more an indictment on the Broncos' depth chart than anything else -- and whether Lock can step up his play in the coming weeks -- both remain to be seen.

Broncos' Drew Lock: Viewed as developmental project
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Vic Fangio doesn't believe Lock is an NFL-ready quarterback, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. "[Lock]'s college offense had no carryover to pro offenses," Fangio said Friday. "He was under duress a lot. I don't think he's as far along being an NFL-ready QB as he could have been. He's not a QB yet. He's a hard-throwing pitcher who doesn't know how to pitch yet.''

Fangio joins general manager John Elway in making it a point to shut down any speculation about a QB competition between Lock and Joe Flacco. The rookie will have time to develop on the bench, following a college career with a 56.9 completion percentage as a four-year starter under three different offensive coordinators at Missouri. The Broncos are betting that Lock's arm strength and athleticism ultimately outweigh concerns regarding his accuracy and pocket presence. He signed his rookie contract Wednesday, just in the nick of time to participate in the start of training camp.

Broncos' Drew Lock: Agrees to rookie deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lock signed his rookie contract Wednesday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.

The Broncos and Lock were at an impasse as recently as Tuesday, but the two sides agreed to workout bonuses in 2021 and 2022, according to Jhabvala, getting the signal-caller in the house for the start of training camp. He'll kick off his career behind veteran Joe Flacco on the depth chart, with his second-round status giving Lock a good shot to make his presence felt early as a professional.

Broncos' Drew Lock: Still negotiating contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lock hasn't signed a contract and may not report for the start of training camp, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.

Lock reportedly wants a quarterback premium that gives him stronger-than-usual guarantees for his draft slot (42nd overall). His negotiations also could impact offensive lineman Dalton Risner, whom the Broncos selected one pick before Lock at No. 41 overall. With Joe Flacco slated for the Week 1 start under center, the team may be worried about Risner's availability for training camp more so than Lock's.

Broncos' Drew Lock: Won't get first-team reps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Vic Fangio suggested Lock, Kevin Hogan and Brett Rypien will share second- and third-string reps during spring practices.

Fangio said Joe Flacco will take all the first-team snaps while Lock is busy competing with a pair of borderline NFL talents. The No. 42 overall pick has a decent shot to make starts during his rookie season, but it doesn't appear the Broncos will give him a fair shot to win the Week 1 job.

Broncos' Drew Lock: Denver selects in second
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Broncos selected Lock in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 42nd overall.

Lock was constantly linked to the Broncos for months now, making him a conventional projection for Denver at the 10th overall pick. The Broncos end up waiting more than a round but got him anyway, giving them a developmental backup with upside and a candidate to step in if Joe Flacco stumbles as starter. Lock (6-foot-4, 228 pounds) is a wild but toolsy quarterback with a strong arm and standout athleticism (4.69-second 40, 11.15 agility score), and despite his rough qualities he at least stands tall and maintains an aggressive demeanor as a passer. Whether his scattershot accuracy can be fixed mechanically is the question of whether he develops into a viable NFL starter, but he definitely needs development in this respect after completing only 56.9 percent of his career passes for Missouri.
