Friday update: The Broncos have listed Drew Lock as questionable for Sunday due to his rib injury. James Palmer is reporting, “Saturday morning will play a factor if he can go. They want to see how he throws and feels after throwing.”

Wednesday update: Vic Fangio told Broncos media on Wednesday that Lock is showing progress since Monday morning with his rib injury, but he will be “limited at best” at practice on Wednesday, per Nick Kosmider.

Tuesday update: Lock is dealing with “pretty severe strain and bruising” to his ribs and is uncertain for Week 11, per Adam Schefter. NFL Network is describing him as week-to-week.

Denver Broncos quarterback Drew Lock played through a rib injury in Week 10. Coach Vic Fangio says that Lock “is pretty sore” and may not practice Wednesday, per ESPN’s Jeff Legwold. When asked about his status for Week 11 against the Dolphins, Fangio said, “we definitely want Drew to have a good week of preparation so he’s ready to play the game so that could enter into the equation as we go into the week.”

Much will depend on how Lock feels this week and if he can get in practices or not. If he can’t go, Brett Rypien and Jeff Driskel would again be next in line. Rypien was the last quarterback to sub in for Lock and he had some great throws, but also some extremely poor decisions as he threw three interceptions against the Jets. I would expect him to get another shot, but for now, Lock is probably the most likely to start in Week 11.
