Broncos: Drew Lock leaves for a round
Teddy Bridgewater (QB) is still recovering from a concussion. According to NFL Media, he won’t be ready this Sunday to face the Chargers. As a result, Drew Lock is expected to be the starting pitcher again. Against the Raiders, Lock returned 15/22 for 153 yards, with no touchdowns or interceptions.
Philip Rivers luxury freelance writer?
Retired for a year, Philip Rivers is still popular in the NFL. After being in contact with the Saints last week, the quarterback spoke with his former Colts coach Franck Reich.
“Yes, I spoke to Philip. Reich told the Indianapolis Star. “He is aware of our situation, but there is nothing more to say. “
In contention for the playoffs but may be deprived of their starting quarterback Carson Wentz on the Covid list, the Colts could be tempted to recall the veteran pitcher to replace Wentz. For now, rookie Sam Elhinger should lead the attack.
