According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Denver Broncos quarterback Drew Lock will be sidelined for at least two-to-six weeks. He has a sprained AC joint in his shoulder.

He departed Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field. He took a bad hit from behind by Steelers linebacker Bud Dupree that caused him to leave the game.

Immediately, after taking the hit, he grabbed for his throwing shoulder. Lock also fumbled the ball on the play, but that was the least of the Broncos concerns.

Following the game, he was seen wearing a sling.

Career backup Jeff Driskel could potentially be the team’s starter until Lock returns. That could potentially be for the next month.

Driskill is 1-7 as a starter in the NFL. He started in place of Matthew Stafford last season with the Detroit Lions.

However, with the Lions, he did not win a single game, as he went 0-3 as the interim starter for Stafford. Before joining the Lions in 2019, he played for the Cincinnati Bengals.

He went 1-4 as a starter in five games.

Lock went 1 of 5 for 20 yards before being injured. Driskel came in and went 18 of 34 for 256 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in a 26-21 loss to the Steelers.

The 27-year-old also had two carries for five yards.
