The day before the Denver Broncos' Week 12 matchup with the New Orleans Saints, all three quarterbacks on the roster were ruled ineligible after they were deemed to be a high-risk close contact to quarterback Jeff Driskel, who was placed on the reserve/COVID list due to a positive test.

The Broncos are now scrambling and practice-squad WR Kendall Hinton might be the answer. If you can't remember ever seeing Hinton drop back to throw a pass -- at any level -- don't beat yourself up. It's probably because you're not a die-hard ACC football fan. The former Wake Forest player was a wide receiver in 2019, but played at quarterback the four seasons prior.

So who is Hinton and what will he bring to the position? During his collegiate career at Wake Forest, Hinton appeared in 22 games over four seasons. Hinton took most of his collegiate quarterback reps during his freshman season in 2015. He completed 93 of 177 attempts for 929 yards, four touchdowns and five interceptions. On the surface, those numbers are fine for a freshman, but things did get dicey. Hinton's 52.5 percent completion rate and 5.2 yards per attempt average were serious red flags. ...

In quite possibly the most preposterous situation of an NFL season full of them, the Denver Broncos are set to play the New Orleans Saints on Sunday with no quarterbacks on their active roster.

Backup quarterback Jeff Driskel was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Thursday, and will now be joined by the rest of the team’s quarterback depth chart. Drew Lock, Brett Rypien and Blake Bortles were all ruled ineligible on Saturday due to contact tracing, the team confirmed.


The Athletic’s Lindsay Jones reported that the three remaining quarterbacks were not forthcoming during contact tracing interviews about their exposure, spent extensive time together without masks and didn’t consistently wear their tracking devices. ...

The NFL fined the New Orleans Saints $500,000 and took away a seventh-round draft pick because they didn't wear masks during their postgame celebrations after beating Tampa Bay 38-3 in Week 9, league sources told ESPN on Sunday.

The Saints, who were not happy about the discipline, have appealed the league's decision. The Saints believe other teams across the league also have celebrated victories without masks, but none has been been hit the way New Orleans has.

Saints players and the team itself posted celebration videos from their postgame locker room, and it immediately gained the attention of the NFL. Coach Sean Payton, linebacker Demario Davis and quarterback Jameis Winston, who made his season debut in the victory over his former team, were among those seen dancing and celebrating in the video posted to Instagram by receiver Tre'Quan Smith.

Davis and C.J. Gardner-Johnson also posted videos of the postgame dancing and celebrating on social media. The Saints no longer have any videos of the locker room celebration on their official Twitter account. ...

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- In the on-field scenario many in the league feared the most with the COVID-19 pandemic, the Denver Broncos plan to play the New Orleans Saints on Sunday with no available quarterbacks for the game.

The Broncos' three eligible quarterbacks -- Drew Lock, Brett Rypien and Blake Bortles -- were each deemed to be high-risk COVID-19 close contacts and none of the three can be in uniform for Sunday's game, the team announced on Saturday night.

Denver's statement didn't say who the players came in contact with but sources told ESPN it was quarterback Jeff Driskel. Driskel tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday and was moved to the team's reserve/COVID-19 list later that day.

The Broncos will not be forfeiting Sunday's game, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. ...
