By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Denver Broncos may be in some big trouble. Their young starting quarterback Drew Lock may be forced to miss significant time.

He was injured on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He went down with what appeared to be an arm or shoulder injury.

He went down in the first quarter when an injury. Lock took a bad hit from behind that sidelined him for potentially the rest of the game.

Career backup Jeff Driskel has been called on to replace Lock for the rest of the game. If Lock has to miss any games, Broncos President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway may elect to start Driskel or sign another player off the street.

Lock is in his first-year of starting quarterback. Joe Flacco – who was the team’s starting quarterback last season – departed the team in the off-season. He signed with New York Jets in the off-season on a one-year deal.

The 27-year-old Driskel was a sixth-round draft pick by the San Francisco 49ers of the 2016 NFL Draft. However, he did not play a game with the 49ers.

He previously played with the Cincinnati Bengals and the Detroit Lions. Driskel is 1-7 as a starter in eight career starts.

Driskel has gone 167 of 281 for 1,688 yards with 10 touchdown passes. He has thrown six interceptions.
