As of now, there is no date of return set for Drew Lock, Jake Butt or Theo Riddick.
Despite dropping a mere six points on the board on primetime in front of the entire nation on Thursday night against the Chiefs, Drew Lock will not be saving the Broncos’ offense any time soon, if at all in 2019.
Since the end of April, the Broncos have been grooming three quarterbacks to backup Joe Flacco. Eight days before the season kicks off, the Broncos completely abandoned those plans, opting to go an entirely new direction instead.
With the offseason, training camp and preseason complete, building the roster is the only thing that stands between the Broncos and the regular season.
The San Francisco 49ers’ defense punched the Denver Broncos’ offense in the mouth in the team’s first joint practice session on Friday. On Saturday, in round two, the Broncos returned the blow.
Joe Flacco, Ja’Wuan James and Kareem Jackson all made their debut in Orange & Blue. But it wasn’t the top-dollar acquisitions that flashed in the Seattle sky, nor was it their fault the team fell 14 to 22 to the Seahawks.
While there were plenty of positives that came with the team’s victory, there were also numerous areas of improvement, as Fangio himself admitted after the game.
