Fangio: Drew Lock’s Bruised Ribs Might Sideline Him Sunday

Poor play won’t get Drew Lock benched. But sore ribs could certainly sideline the Broncos’ struggling second-year quarterback this weekend.

Coach Vic Fangio says Lock could miss Wednesday’s practice after suffering bruised ribs in the Broncos’ loss at Las Vegas. If he misses too many practices this week, the Broncos could turn to backup Brett Rypien when they host the resurgent Dolphins.

Fangio reiterated that it’s best for Lock to work through his problems if his health allows. Fangio says benching Lock won’t do as much good as letting him play through the growing pains that are typical for young quarterbacks.
