In an already difficult season for the Denver Broncos, quarterback Drew Lock’s name was added to the roster on Sunday.
With less than eight minutes left in the first quarter, Lock caused a right (throwing) shoulder injury in the left game. He was fired by the Steelers guard Bud Dupree and shook as he landed awkwardly on his right shoulder and arm.
When Locke reached the sideline, his right shoulder drooped slightly. He was taken to the medical tent and stayed there during the next Pittsburgh property, but was then taken to the locker room, where Jeff Driscoll took over the center.
The lock is the latest frontline player injury for the Broncos as linebacker von Miller (ankle) and cornerback guard AJ Buyer (shoulder) are in the injured reserve. Running Phillip Lindsay (toe) was not active in Sunday̵
The Steelers announced their intentions earlier on Sunday and put a lot of pressure on Locke. Locke made his first pass attempt-Cortland Sutton completed a 20-yard shot-but missed his next four attempts.
On the sacks, the Mustang cannot slow down Dupree or TJ Watt. Watt tripped Locke in his pocket, forcing him to scramble into Dupree, who closed unimpeded and placed the hit on Locke.
