Broncos QB Lock (ribs) could miss Week 11

Denver Broncos quarterback Drew Lock is dealing with sore ribs and might miss the team’s Week 11 game, coach Vic Fangio said Monday.

Fangio said Lock is questionable to practice Wednesday. The Broncos (3-6) host the Miami Dolphins (6-3) on Sunday.

“There’s a chance of that, with his injury the way it is,” Fangio told reporters. “It’s an injury that is day-to-day where a lot of improvements can be made, and we’ll see how he does with it.”

Lock played the entire game Sunday in the Broncos’ 37-12 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. Lock threw four interceptions though it’s not clear when he hurt his ribs.

Brett Rypien and Jeff Driskel back up Lock on the depth chart. Each has a start this season when Lock missed time with a shoulder injury.

Lock now has 10 interceptions on the season to go with seven touchdowns and a meager 55 percent completion rate. Fangio talked postgame about the team’s commitment to Lock despite the struggles.

“We’re committed to Drew — the more he can play, the better he’ll be,” Fangio said after the loss Sunday. “… He’s got to fight through this … and we’re going to continue to play him.”

The Broncos took Lock in the second round of the 2019 NFL draft.
