All Broncos QBs pulled out of practice over virus

All Broncos QBs pulled out of practice over virus

The Broncos did not have any of their four quarterbacks available for their 31-3 loss to the New Orleans Saints.

All three Broncos quarterbacks Brett Rypien, Jeff Driskill and Drew Lock were ineligible to play on Sunday.

Denver will activate WR Kendall Hinton from their practice squad and he will be taking plenty of snaps at quarterback against New Orleans. After the game, Broncos head coach Vic Fangio called out, not the National Football League, but his own quarterbacks.

The two teams were scheduled to play on Thanksgiving Day, but the game was moved to Tuesday after the Ravens reported at least 19 coronavirus cases among its players and staff members, including quarterback Lamar Jackson. He was a quarterback during his first three seasons at Wake Forest.

In a grind-it-out slugfest like from pro football's early days, the Saints won their second straight game with Hill subbing for the injured Drew Brees.

They would have to play the Saints, a team riding a seven-game win streak, without a quarterback.

An hour before kickoff, Lock tweeted an explanation and a mea culpa in which he admitted the QBs weren't wearing their masks when they gathered last week.

The Broncos also have wide receiver Kendall Hinton on their practice squad.

Although Newton didn't play in the October 4 game against the Kansas City Chiefs two days after he was diagnosed, 20 teammates and staff members who were deemed to be close contacts to Newton flew out to the game, according to ESPN.

The NFL has told the Broncos that the game is still on, but Vic Fangio and Pat Shurmur might need to be calling John Fox on how he ran the wildcat formation back in 2006 and how he won a game with Tim Tebow back in 2011 completing only two passes against the Chiefs. The offense did rush for 100 yards.

If the NFL cared more about integrity than money, the league would have rescheduled Sunday's Denver Broncos vs.

After the game, Fangio said he was "disappointed" in the team's quarterbacks. Obviously, I haven't done a good enough job of selling the protocols to them, when they're on their own. "Of course, there was nerves and disbelief, but the encouragement the team gave me and guys just keeping me up the whole time, they made it a lot easier for me", Hinton said, adding he "eventually got some sleep" Saturday night.
