Schefter: Broncos' Drew Lock (shoulder) to be re-evaluated in 2 weeks
Denver Broncos quarterback Drew Lock (shoulder) will be sidelined "at least" two weeks before his injury is re-evaluated again, reports Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Lock suffered a severe rotator cuff strain in the first quarter of the Broncos' Week 2 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. He's expected to miss up to six weeks, but Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that the Broncos expect Lock back before their Week 8 bye. Jeff Driskel stepped in for Lock on Sunday and completed 18-of-34 passes for 256 yards with 2 touchdowns and an interception, including 7 targets for first-round pick Jerry Jeudy. Driskel will look to put forth another admirable effort for Denver in Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Driskel scored 19.7 FanDuel points in Week 2 and averaged -0.12 Passing Net Expected Points per attempt. Lock averaged -0.05 Passing NEP per attempt in Week 1.
