Lock completed 18 of 30 passes for 270 yards and an interception in Sunday's 20-13 win over the Dolphins. He also gained 23 rushing yards on two carries.
It was another poor fantasy performance from Lock, who got picked off for the sixth straight game and has a 6:11 TD:INT over that stretch, but the Denver pass rush ended up shutting down Miami's offense and didn't need much help to get the team in the win column. Lock could be headed for another tepid effort in Week 12 against a Saints defense that just held Matt Ryan and the Falcons to nine points.
Lock (ribs) is active for Sunday's Week 11 tilt against the Dolphins.
As expected, the second-year signal-caller will suit up after suffering some bruising and a strain in his rib area during a Week 10 loss to the Raiders. Therefore, Broncos skill-position players should be deployed as usual, but they'll face a surging Dolphins defense that's allowed just 194.5 passing yards per road contest -- the second-lowest figure in the AFC -- thus far.
Lock (ribs) is expected to start at quarterback in Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Lock suffered a "pretty severe strain and bruising" to his ribs in last week's loss to the Raiders, but he battled through it in practice this week and will give it a go Sunday. While he's still officially questionable, Lock is expected to be officially cleared when the Broncos reveal their inactive list 90 minutes before the 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff. Brett Rypien will be Lock's primary backup in case he aggravates the injury.
Lock (ribs) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.
While coach Vic Fangio acknowledged that Lock was "a little sore" Friday after he was cleared to resume Thursday, Fangio added that he "didn't see too much altering" in the quarterback's delivery. According to Mike Klis of 9News Denver, Fangio noted that the Broncos would likely decide on a starter for the Week 11 matchup by the end of the day Saturday, so fantasy players should have a good idea whether Lock will be ready to go well in advance of Sunday's 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff. Brett Rypien split reps with Lock at practice the past two days, so Rypien would presumably receive the starting nod over Jeff Driskel if Lock ends up inactive.
Lock (ribs) is expected to be limited at Friday's practice and continue splitting quarterback reps with Brett Rypien, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
The 24-year-old is apparently trending in the right direction for Sunday's matchup with the Dolphins, but he isn't expected to significantly increase his practice work in the Broncos' final practice of the week. Lock seems likely to be considered questionable for Week 11, but his status won't receive official clarity until the injury report is released later Friday.
Lock (ribs) split QB reps with Brett Rypien during Thursday's practice, Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com reports.
Lock, who was officially listed as limited Thursday, noted afterward that he felt good while throwing in drills, but he fell short of confirming that he'll play Sunday against the Dolphins. "I would like to be (available to play)," Lock said Thursday. "Obviously I'll give my opinion and it's going to be I want to play, but in the end it's not 100 percent up to me what happens." Added clarity with regard to his Week 11 status should arrive no later than Friday after the Broncos trainers and doctors assess the signal-caller following practice.
Lock (ribs) will return to a limited practice Thursday, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.
Per James Palmer of NFL Network, Lock -- who didn't practice Wednesday -- is in line to see some reps during the team portion of practice Thursday. While the QB's return to the field bodes well for his chances of suiting up Sunday against the Dolphins, Lock will have to escape practice (both Thursday and Friday) without any setbacks in order to garner the start this weekend.
Lock (ribs) didn't practice Wednesday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.
Coach Vic Fangio noted that Lock's ability to play Sunday against the Dolphins will depend on a few factors that will be evaluated as the week rolls along, while adding that the team wants the quarterback to see some practice reps in advance of the weekend. As long as Lock sits out or is limited at practice, however, Brett Rypien will continue to see added first-team work in his place.
Lock (ribs) isn't "expected to do much, if anything" in practice Wednesday, but the Broncos are hopeful that he'll be able to increase his activity in workouts by the end of the week, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Though he played every snap Sunday in the Broncos' 37-12 loss to the Raiders, Lock emerged from the game with a muscle strain and bruising near his ribs. The core injury has prompted the Broncos to label Lock as day-to-day, and Rapoport predicts the signal-caller will be in line for more of a rest day Wednesday as the team begins Week 11 prep. The Broncos' first injury report of the week will reveal whether Lock was a limited or non-participant, but his involvement in practices Thursday and Friday will prove more telling with regard to his status for the game against the Dolphins this weekend. On a positive note, Rapoport notes that Lock is "feeling a lot better" in the days since the Raiders game, but Brett Rypien and Jeff Driskel will be on hand as starting options in the event Lock can't gain clearance for the Week 11 contest.
Lock is dealing with a "pretty severe strain and bruising" to his ribs and is considered day-to-day, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Schefter adds that Lock avoided broken bones, but the Broncos are still uncertain if the 24-year-old quarterback will be ready for this Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Lock was clearly playing through pain in last week's loss to the Raiders, and his performance suffered, as he completed just 49 percent of his passes and threw four picks. It could simply be a matter of pain tolerance yet again, and Lock's practice status Wednesday will be the best indicator of his health. Brett Rypien and Jeff Driskel will prepare to start at quarterback in the event that Lock can't play.
Lock is nursing a muscle strain around his ribs, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Coach Vic Fangio has shed doubt on whether Lock will practice Wednesday, according to Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com, and Adam Schefter of ESPN has reported that the 24-year-old could be unable to face the Dolphins on Sunday. Even in the event that Lock is forced to miss a week, the fact that he's avoided any broken bones would seem to indicate that his injury isn't a long-term issue. The Broncos have Brett Rypien and Jeff Driskel on hand if a spot start at quarterback is needed.
Lock (ribs) may not be able to suit up against the Dolphins on Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Lock managed to stay on the field for the entirety of Sunday's 37-12 loss to the Raiders despite playing with obvious discomfort, but it sounds like his chances of playing Week 11 truly are up in the air. Coach Vic Fangio said Monday that Lock is "pretty sore" and may not practice Wednesday, per Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com. Fangio also said that he wants Lock to "have a good week of preparation" before facing Miami's stout defense, so if the second-year signal-caller is indeed forced to miss significant practice time, Brett Rypien could be in line to start.
Coach Vic Fangio called Lock "questionable" to practice Wednesday due to soreness in his ribs, Nick Kosmider of The Athletic reports.
Lock showed obvious discomfort during Sunday's 37-12 loss to the Raiders in which he threw one score and four interceptions, but he managed to play through his injury the entire contest. Fangio also said there's "a chance" Lock misses Week 11, per Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com, but the second-year quarterback hasn't yet been ruled out. Brett Rypien remains on hand as the team's top backup.
Lock played through an oblique/abdomen injury during Sunday's 37-12 loss to the Raiders, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
Lock had a miserable 1:4 TD:INT ratio during Sunday's loss, but it's possible that at least some amount of his performance issues can be blamed on playing through core pain. The second-year signal-caller dealt with obvious discomfort against the Raiders, but the fact that he managed to remain in the game for all four quarters provides reason to be optimistic that he won't be forced to miss time. On the other hand, Lock may need to be at 100 percent Week 11 if he's going to overcome a stalwart Miami secondary led by Xavien Howard (who boasts five interceptions) and Byron Jones.
Lock completed 23 of 47 pass attempts for 257 yards, throwing one touchdown and committing four interceptions during Sunday's 37-12 loss to the Raiders. He also ran for seven yards on two attempts, fumbling once but recovering the loose ball himself.
Lock threw a pair of picks to safety Jeff Heath in the first half, then gifted one each to Carl Nassib and Nick Kwiatkoski during the fourth quarter. The sophomore signal-caller avoided committing an INT over his first two starts of the season -- including Week 2 against Pittsburgh when he exited after five attempts due to a right shoulder injury -- but he's now thrown to an abysmal 6:10 TD:INT since making his Week 6 return. He hasn't compensated for the turnovers with explosive downfield throws, eclipsing 255 passing yards in just one game this season while logging 5.7 adjusted yards per attempt. A Week 11 matchup against the Dolphins is less than favorable after Miami held the usually explosive Justin Herbert to 187 passing yards Sunday.
Lock completed 25 of 48 passes with 313 yards, two touchdowns and one interception, adding seven rushes for 47 yards and an additional score during Sunday's 34-27 loss to the Falcons.
Lock has contributed six touchdowns over his past five quarters of play, though his team has only emerged victorious in one of the two contests involved -- that of course coming last week when he threw a walk-off one-yard TD pass to KJ Hamler. It is inarguable Lock has been a more explosive passer of late, with a 5:2 TD:INT ratio and 280.5 passing yards per game his past two outings. Weeks 1 through 7 Lock posted a combined 1:4 TD:INT, with 219.7 passing yards per game in the three outings he was able to complete during that span. The Missouri product has also pitched in via the ground recently, tallying rushing scores over two of the past three weeks. Upcoming next is a showdown with a Las Vegas defense that surrendered 326 passing yards and a pair of passing scores to the Chargers' Justin Herbert on Sunday.
Lock completed 26 of 41 pass attempts for 248 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in Week 8 against the Chargers.
Lock led the Broncos to an impressive comeback victory, tossing all three of his touchdowns in the second half. The effort was capped by a one-yard toss to KJ Hamler as time ran out in the fourth quarter. Lock also showed rapport with his other primary pass-catchers, connecting with DaeSean Hamilton for a 40-yard touchdown as well as Jerry Jeudy on a 43-yard pass over the middle of the field. This effort was the first time Lock managed to throw multiple touchdown passes in a game this season and was also the first time in three games that he didn't throw multiple interceptions. He'll look to build on this effort in Week 9 at Atlanta.
Lock went 24-for-40 passing with 254 yards and two interceptions during Sunday's 43-16 loss to the Chiefs. He also registered eight yards on three carries with a rushing score.
The second-year signal-caller has struggled in his return from an early-season shoulder injury, throwing to a 53.1 percent completion rate with no passing TDs and four INTs over the past two weeks. Denver's defense did enough last week to cover up the sophomore's errors, forcing three turnovers and allowing just 12 points to New England. Against the defending champions on Sunday, however, the Broncos could not withstand another sloppy effort from the offense. Including Week 1, Lock has one total TD pass in the three games he has been able to complete, and the offense is averaging only 16 points per game in those contests.
Lock (shoulder) completed 10 of 24 passes for 189 yards and two interceptions in Sunday's 18-12 win over the Patriots. He also registered five rushing attempts for minus-1 yard.
Lock found Tim Patrick for a 41-yard gain on his first pass, but things only went downhill from there. He failed to lead the offense into the end zone, settling for six field goals, and Lock's fourth-quarter miscues almost cost his team the game. Denver's final three offensive plays before Lock kneeled out the clock in the final minute were a Lock fumble that he managed to recover followed by back-to-back interceptions. The defense bailed him out and led Denver to its second win, but Lock will need to step things up substantially to give his team a chance against Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs in Week 7.
Lock (shoulder) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Patriots.
Lock last suited up on Sept. 20, but the postponement of the Broncos' originally-scheduled Week 5 contest to this Sunday has afforded the second-year signal caller the added time he needed to be ready to return to the lineup following a two-game absence. Lock's return, along with that of running back Phillip Lindsay (toe), helps offset the Week 6 unavailability of leading rusher Melvin Gordon (illness) and top tight end Noah Fant (ankle).
