Injury Report: Drew Lock listed as questionable for #DENvsNE


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — As the Broncos prepare for a Monday game against the Patriots, there's still a chance that Drew Lock could guide the offense in New England.

After being limited in practice on Saturday, Lock was listed as questionable on the team's final injury report of the week.

"It's still open and up in the air as to who will play on Monday night," Head Coach Vic Fangio said on Friday.

Fangio said he expected Lock would start the game if he was healthy enough to be active. Lock has not played since suffering an injury in the first half of the Broncos' Week 2 game in Pittsburgh.

If Lock is unable to play, Brett Rypien would get his second start in as many weeks.

Nose tackle Mike Purcell is also questionable after he practiced on a limited basis with a knee injury for the first time this week.

Linebacker Joe Jones, who was added to the injury report Thursday with a knee injury, will be questionable, as well.

Outside linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu (quad), tight end Noah Fant (ankle), wide receiver KJ Hamler (hamstring) and running back LeVante Bellamy (knee) have been ruled out. Attaochu will miss his second consecutive game, while Fant and Hamler will be held out after suffering injuries against the Jets. Bellamy suffered his injury in practice on Thursday.

Running back Phillip Lindsay, who has not played since he suffered a toe injury in Week 1 against the Titans, was a full participant in practice all week and was not given a game status. The lack of a game status indicates he will be available against the Patriots.

"I feel good," Lindsay said Saturday. "I feel well rested, and the toe is feeling 100 percent. I'm ready to get back out there and help my team get some wins."
