Reports: Broncos OC Pat Shurmur in COVID protocols

Broncos offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur is in COVID-19 protocols and unlikely to call plays Sunday when Denver hosts the Philadelphia Eagles, multiple outlets reported Friday.

The Shurmur news emerged as the Broncos announced they placed guard Austin Schlottmann on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

The list is for vaccinated players who have tested positive, or for unvaccinated players who have been named a close contact of someone with the virus or tested positive themselves.

He becomes the fourth player on the reserve/COVID-19 list, along with quarterback Drew Lock, cornerback Michael Ojemudia and linebacker Justin Strnad.

Schlottmann recently was signed from the practice squad to the active roster.

In Shurmur’s absence, the Broncos could turn to quarterbacks coach Mike Shula, a former NFL offensive coordinator, to call plays.
