The Denver Broncos will be in a unique dilemma, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. And of course, it’s only happening during the weird 2020.

The Broncos will be without four quarterbacks in Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints. The team will turn to a practice squad player to start.

Jeff Driskel tested positive for the coronavirus on Thursday. As a result of Driskel’s positive test, Drew Lock, Brett Rypien, and Blake Bortles were ruled ineligible due to close contact with Driskel.

Kendall Hinton is expected to play a lot of quarterback, according to KOA NewsRadio 850 AM & 94.1 FM’s Benjamin Allbright. Hinton is presently a practice squad wide receiver.

He has not played quarterback since he was in college. He was a quarterback for the Wake Forest Demon Deacons from 2015 through 2018.

In 2019, Hinton converted from quarterback to wide receiver.

He’s gone 133 of 251 for 1,504 yards in 22 games as a college quarterback. In addition, Hinton had eight touchdown passes and seven interceptions.

In 2015, Hinton went 93 of 177 for a college-high 929 yards. He had four touchdown passes and five interceptions in nine games.

Running back Royce Freeman is also expected to see some time at quarterback. Defensive end Von Miller also joked that he’ll be available, too.

Miller has not played this season. And he may not play due to a dislocated peroneal tendon in his ankle.

“Been waiting my whole life for this moment!,” Miller said on Twitter. “‘Von ELWAY’. Ima passing QB don’t need to run much! Ankle is good for QB.”
