X-rays on the injured hand of Denver Broncos rookie quarterback Drew Lock came back negative, according to Mike Klis of 9News.

Lock left Monday night’s preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers in the third quarter after seemingly jamming his right thumb into the turf attempting a desperation shovel pass to avoid a sack. Lock was tripped up by 49ers safety Marcell Harris and he attempted to toss the ball in the vicinity of tight end Bug Howard only to have his hand slam into the turf after releasing the ball.

Lock was supposed to play into the fourth quarter of the game. Instead, Kevin Hogan returned to the lineup to close out the contest for Denver. He was listed as questionable to return to the game but there’s no reason to push things in the preseason.

The X-rays coming back clean is obviously good news for Lock and the Broncos. Unless any ligaments were significantly affected, Lock could avoid missing much, if any, time altogether.

  1. Thank the maker, lest we have to endure another Colin Kaepernick dissertation from the barney-in-chief. I mean, let’s face it, he’s got that bit down to copy and paste boilerplate material at this point. When Kaepernick hits 50, he’ll need to find something new to wash, rinse and repeat.

  2. he’s showing promise, even though hes running for his life with the backup o-line. Hogan on the other hand is terrible and i hate the bronco fans that kept bringing his name up as an actual qb theyd want on the roster

  3. They need Lock because Flacco is not going to win enough games to satisfy Elway or Fangio.
