Every Broncos quarterback ruled out for game because of COVID-19

The Broncos will not have an experienced quarterback available as their three active quarterbacks all have been ruled ineligible for their home game Sunday against the Saints, according to multiple reports.

Drew Lock, backup Brett Rypien and practice squad member Blake Bortles were pulled off the practice field Saturday and sent home over concerns about their contact (minus masks) with QB Jeff Driskel, who is infected with COVID-19.

ESPN reported, citing a source, that the Broncos (4-6) will not forfeit the game.

Wide receiver Kendall Hinton, who played quarterback at Wake Forest, is expected to be under center for Denver on Sunday, according to the NFL Network. Running back Royce Freeman is also a potential option.

KUSA-TV in Denver initially reported the three QBs had been pulled out of practice before it ended Saturday.
