Just Simmons has been ran over twice in one half already now.
Broncos QB Drew Lock has been ruled OUT against #Steelers.
Well Lock is done for the day and so are the Broncos! How long are the Broncos going to keep ignoring these Tackle positions they wasted money on beyond worthless James and keep trotting Wilkinson out there who is beyond atrocious and now your franchise QB goes down! If Lock misses extended time how long before the Colin Krapernick cries start coming?
So the Broncos have lost Lock, Lindsay, Miller, Strnad, Sutton, Bouye, Bolles, and Jeudy among other already in dropping their first two games. We may run out of players before the season is half over. Maybe a 3-13 record is what we should be shooting for this season. At least it would give us a decent draft position. Now the question is how long Driskel can last if the team gives up seven sacks a game.
I warned that an injury to Lock with the poor OT play could derail the entire season. Elway had an opportunity to spend some money and fix this problem. I did not see the game, but I would not have expected a 21 to 26 outcome after Lock went down. Not bad considering.
Drew Lock exited the Denver Broncos' Week 2 matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers after he was sacked from behind and landed awkwardly. It was on a third-down play.
After entering the medical tent, Lock headed to the locker room with trainers. He's has been ruled out for the rest of the game.
Meanwhile, Jeff Driskel entered the game and made a nice throw on first down to Jerry Jeudy, who picked up 20 yards. The drive would stall but the Broncos have already had to turn to their fail-safe QB.

The Broncos are currently trailing the Steelers 7-0, as Pittsburgh used Lock's injury to punch its opponent in the mouth while they were on their heels. The Steelers seem to have the momentum for now.
Fans can only hope that Lock will be okay and not miss too much time. In the meantime, the Broncos will have to march forward without their burgeoning franchise quarterback.
This is not the most fortuitous start to the Broncos' first road game of the year.
UPDATE: Lock has been ruled out. The Broncos will have to ride with Driskel.
