Drew Lock Could Open Season On IR

Aug 23, 2019 9:13 AM

Drew Lock could open his rookie season on the injured reserve for the Denver Broncos, says Vic Fangio.

Lock suffered a severely sprained thumb on his throwing hand early in the third quarter of Monday night's preseason loss to the visiting San Francisco 49ers.

The quarterback will neither play nor practice for the remainder of the preseason.

"Obviously because it's his throwing hand and a thumb, that's a pretty serious injury for a quarterback," Fangio said. "It will be some time before we know exactly where he's at and how much time he would miss."

Mike Shanahan Nearly Returned To Broncos In 2018

Aug 18, 2019 3:29 PM

Mike Shanahan revealed he was close to returning to the Denver Broncos before the 2018 season.

The Broncos ended up giving Vance Joseph one more season as head coach.

"I was close, I was close,'' Shanahan said. "One thing that has to happen is you all have to be on the same page. One thing you've got to make sure of when you are a head football coach that the owner, the GM, the quarterback are all on the same page. And if it doesn't happen the chances of you winning the Super Bowl aren't very good. ... I had a great conversation with John as everybody knows, it didn't work out, sometimes it works out for the right reasons.''
