And now, #Broncos QB Drew Lock is questionable to return with a right shoulder injury, and Jeff Driskel is in at QB for Denver.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 20, 2020
Lock injured his shoulder on a play where he was sacked from behind by Steelers outside linebacker Bud Dupree. Dupree also forced a fumble on the play which was recovered by Mike Hilton.
Lock was nearly sacked first by T.J. Watt only to escape and get tackled by Dupree. The Steelers subsequently finished off the drive which began with the turnover with a James Conner touchdown.

Driskel has appeared in 12 games in the NFL consisiting of nine games with the Cincinnati Bengals in 2018 and three games with the Detroit Lions in 2019. In his career, Driscoll has a record of 1-7 as a starter and has 10 touchdowns and six interceptions in all of his appearances.
