It looks like Drew Lock’s first preseason is coming to a premature end. After suffering a hand injury in the third quarter of Monday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers, reports now suggest he suffered a bad sprain.

The good news is he won’t need surgery, the bad news is he’ll miss time - possibly even the rest of the preseason.

The injury all but cements the Denver Broncos will carry three quarterbacks into the Week 1 season opener against the Oakland Raiders.
