Drew Lock injured as Broncos fall 26-21 to Pittsburgh – The Denver Post


PITTSBURGH – Examined by Broncos coaching staff after landing on his right shoulder in Game 13 of Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, quarterback Drew Lock rose from the bench and mimicked a throwing motion to see if all of its parts were working.He grimaced.

A second attempt was not necessary.

“It was funny,” Lock said after the Broncos’ 26-21 loss. “I’m not going to blow things up over how funny it was, but I’ve been throwing a soccer ball my whole life and I wouldn’t necessarily say it felt normal from the start.

Lock was escorted to the medical tent behind the bench and eventually to the locker room, having to watch the Broncos loss on TV like everyone else at home.

The Broncos are 0-2, but uh-oh-and-2 may be a more apt description.

Barely two weeks into the season, they saw their quarterback, elite passer (Von Miller), top receiver (Courtland Sutton), top cornerback (AJ Bouye) and running back. -starting (Phillip Lindsay) get off.

By the time quarterback Jeff Driskel was sacked in fourth place for the Steelers at 15 with 1:51 to go, Lock was long gone and the severity of his injury struck like a thud when he appeared for a videoconference to ‘post-match with his right arm. in a scarf. Two hours after the game, reports revealed Lock would be out for 2-6 weeks, but a league source said no schedule would be set until Lock undergoes an MRI test on Monday morning and a diagnosis is finalized.

“We’re going to take it day to day,” Lock said. “I’m optimistic about it.”

That makes a person in Broncos country.
