Drew Lock’s Mom is not going to let people jump all over her son without a fight.
On Monday, Laura Lock took to Twitter and dropped a statement to clear up any confusion surrounding her son and why he was forced to miss this past Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints.
Quarterbacks Drew Lock, Brett Rypien and Blake Bortles were pulled off the Broncos practice field Saturday and sent home after the NFL deemed them high-risk close contacts of Jeff Driskel, who tested positive for the coronavirus on Thanksgiving Day. It turned out the four Denver QBs had gathered for some film study on their own Tuesday, but failed to wear masks.
Head coach Vic Fangio, whose team fell to 4-7 with Kendall Hinton as the emergency starter at QB, said he was “disappointed on a couple of levels” that his quarterbacks’ actions put his team and the NFL into a difficult position.
