Drew Lock suffered rotator cuff strain and is expected to miss time

Drew Lock

Courtland Sutton was not the only Denver Broncos’ offensive starter to sustain a major injury on Sunday. Starting quarterback Drew Lock left the game with a shoulder injury that was later revealed to be a rotator cuff strain according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

This is another crushing blow to the Denver Broncos who were considered a dark horse team coming into 2020. Before their Week 1 Game the Broncos lost pass rusher Von Miller for the entire season and Courtland Sutton missed the first game of the season due to sprain in his AC Joint. Then Sutton tore his ACL on Sunday.

The good news is that Lock’s injury will only keep him out a few weeks. He will miss at least the next two weeks against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New York Jets. The earliest Lock can return is Week 5 against the New England Patriots.

Last season Lock only played in five games because of a thumb injury. Lock went 4-1 during those games and looked like John Elway’s answer at quarterback that he has been looking for. In Week 1 versus the Tennessee Titans, Lock threw for 216 yards and a touchdown in the 14-16 loss.

Former Bengals quarterback Jeff Driskel is expected to be the teams starter until Lock returns.
