In an update to an earlier post on the Broncos quarterbacks, all of them have been deemed high-risk, close contact and are therefore ineligible for Sunday against the Saints.
Schefter notes none of the players were wearing masks when they were exposed to the virus. This is quite the event now for the Broncos. Mike Klis reports RB Royce Freeman might end up being the starting quarterback, if the game is still on. Stay tuned.
Update: Ben Allbright is reporting former Wake Forest quarterback and current practice squad wide receiver Kendall Hinton, not Royce Freeman, will be the starting quarterback for the Broncos.
This was the expectation all week that he would be back in the lineup against the Bills. This will be Ekeler’s first action since suffering the hamstring injury back in Week 4. Good timing as Karen Ballage is dealing ankle and calf injuries of his own. Ekeler had a good week of practice after the team designated him for return on Tuesday.
The 49ers are temporarily unable to ply or practice at their home facilities due to a new order from Santa Clara County.
The county announced that no pro or college team can have games that include direct contact in the county for the next three weeks. The 49ers, of course, play in Santa Clara and this now affects their next two home games on December 7 against Buffalo and December 13 against Washington. They travel to the Rams this week, so they have some time, but not a lot to find a temporary location.
