Report: Teddy Bridgewater to Start at QB for Broncos vs. Steelers Sunday

Published

on

Denver Broncos quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has been cleared from the NFL concussion protocol and will start on Sunday against the Steelers, according to a report by Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Bridgewater had been in the protocol since leaving the Broncos’ Week 4 game against the Baltimore Ravens, had been limited in practice in the week leading up to Denver’s trip to Pittsburgh and was officially listed as questionable on Friday.

Bridgewater’s healthy status will push Drew Lock back into a backup role. Lock, who started the game between the teams for Denver in 2020, lost his starting job to Bridgewater this offseason, and the latter led the Broncos to an unexpected 3-1 start to the 2021 season.

Wide receiver Courtland Sutton, who was also listed as questionable with an ankle injury, will be a game-time decision, Shefter said.
