Drew Lock has spent the entirety of the season on IR with a hand injury, but following the Broncos bye week, he finally began to participate in practice.
For Lock, a return to practice was a step in the right direction.
“It had been a long time,” Lock said. “It was like a dream come true coming back out here. It’s like I’m starting my journey back in the NFL all over again. It feels good to be finally back out there with the guys.
While Lock was unable to participate in on-field activities for the better part of two months, he feels that time allowed him to sharpen up the mental aspect of his game.
“I think with how we prepared in this whole time when I wasn’t actually out here physically doing anything being able to be mentally ready,” Lock said. “I think that helped put me a step ahead.”
Denver expects Lock to be ready to go in roughly three weeks, barring any unforeseen setbacks. For the time being, Lock will practice and stay prepared for when his time comes.
For now, Denver will run with Brandon Allen as QB1, but the entire state of Colorado is anxiously awaiting Lock’s debut.
