Broncos will not put QB Drew Lock (shoulder) on IR

The Broncos are not putting quarterback Drew Lock on injured reserve as they beleive he could possibly return in less than three weeks.

Fantasy Impact: 

This is a good sign for Lock and the Broncos. A trip to the IR would knock him out for a minimum of three games so it appears there is some optimism Lock could return over the course of the next two weeks. The report notes that the possibility remains Lock misses 4 or more games so this is no guarantee Denver's optimism will prove correct. The Broncos will start Jeff Driskel on Sunday with newly-signed Blake Bortles slotting in as his backup.
