Drew Lock played much better than the numbers indicate in his first action in nearly a month.
It's no secret Drew Lock is trending in the right direction to play on Sunday against the New England Patriots.
After his second straight full practice on Thursday, Vic Fangio added to that optimism.
The NFL gave the Denver Broncos 24 more hours to see if Drew Lock can be healthy enough to play in Week 5 after the league moved their game against the New England Patriots from Sunday to Monday.
The Broncos are taking that extra time and running with it.
A lot rides on Drew Lock's health moving forward. But there's a 50-50 chance the Broncos will get their starting quarterback back for their next game.
After leading the Broncos to their first win of the season, Rypien is poised to be their quarterback at least for another game, right?
Not so fast.
For a third-straight week, the Broncos will have a new signal-caller under center. Here's why the Broncos are giving Brett Rypien a shot.
Vic Fangio did not announce a starting quarterback on Monday. But he did leave the door open to a very unusual situation that could take place on Thursday night against the Jets.
On Sunday, the Broncos started their league-high eighth quarterback since the 2016 season.
In 96 hours, they can extend their league-high to nine.
Denver will attempt to avoid their second-consecutive 0-3 start to the season. The only thing that stands between Jeff Driskel and the Broncos picking up their first win of the season is Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Will the Broncos be able to pull off the upset?
In high school just over a decade ago, one year, 5.6 miles and a world of attention separated Driskel and Bortles.
Jeff Driskel-to-Noah Fant needs to be the combination at the heart of the Broncos' attack for the next few weeks.
The injury bug struck the Broncos and hasn't left.
After losing Von Miller for a majority of the year, if not the entire year, just before the start of the season, Denver lost A.J. Bouye and Phillip Lindsay for multiple weeks during Week 1's game against the Tennessee Titans.
But losing three Pro Bowl players just wasn't enough. On Sunday, Denver lost Pro Bowl receiver Courtland Sutton and Drew Lock as well as many players on the defensive side of the ball.
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Monday morning’s Broncos practice was the 13th of training camp so far. Usually at this point in their work, the team would be through one preseason game and getting ready for its second, with the regular season still nearly a month away. For example, when the Broncos had their 13th practice in 2019, it was Aug. 5.…...
As Vic Fangio put it after practice, defensive coaches and players loved the way the scrimmage went. On the flip side, offensive players and coaches did not.
With an off day in sight, the Broncos brought the heat on Tuesday. But one side of the ball won the day.
Vic Fangio began Friday's practice by bringing his team together in a huddle. After a minute of Fangio addressing his team, players started to hoot and holler and get hyped for whatever message the coach was delivering.
The defense took that shot of energy and ran with it to start practice. The offense, however, didn't pick up on it one bit as they came out flat, sluggish and out of tune. The energy started to hit the offense as the practice went on.
Courtland Sutton lived a cliche Wednesday morning. It isn't whether you fall down; it's what you do when you get back up.
Vic Fangio didn't play "Under Pressure" by Queen on the loudspeakers during warmups on Sunday. But it would have been a fitting theme song for Sunday’s practice as the pass rush brought the heat.
