Sources told ESPN on Sunday that Kendall Hinden, the broad receiver of the unconstructed rookie training team, will start the Denver Broncos against the New Orleans Saints in the quarterfinals on Sunday, but that their attacking quality control coach for the past two years should be Rob Calabras. .
Denver felt that Calprise had a strong command of its guilt, and that he could run the system better than anyone else, sources told ESPN. The league denied those requests, which were made throughout the day on Saturday, saying the Broncos could not hire a coach to carry out their active list. Sources said the league does not want coaching staff to be storage areas for potential players.
Hindon, who has been a quarterback for three seasons at WakeFarrett, was promoted from the training squad to the Kovit-19 alternative when the team and some of its players took to social media to shed light on the quarterback situation for Sunday’s game.
For a quarterback at Wake Forest, Hindon finished with 253 passes off 133 for 1,504 yards with eight touchdowns and seven interceptions. He accelerated to 1,059 yards with 12 touchdowns in 188 carries.
The Broncos have repeatedly asked the NFL to postpone Sunday’s game to Tuesday, allowing some of their quarterbacks to drop from the Reserve / Covit-19 list, sources told ESPN.
Commissioner Roger Goodell denied those claims, realizing that the league was unfair to Broncos’ fraud, sources told ESPN.
The Broncos’ three qualified quarterbacks – Drew Locke, Brett Ribbon and Blake Portils – were each considered high-risk COVID-19 close associates, and the team announced Saturday night that none of the three could be in uniform for Sunday’s game.
The Denver report did not say who the players were in contact with, but sources told ESPN that it was quarterback Jeff Triskell. Triskel tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday and was transferred to the team’s inventory / COVID-19 list for the day.
Sources told ESPN that Locke, Rybian and Portils, who were on the training team, were initially kicked off the field early Saturday practice and told to be isolated at home after contact-tracking concerns arose. During contact with Triskel it was discovered that the trio did not wear masks at one point, group sources told ESPN, but it was unclear whether it happened in practice or during the meeting.
Sources told ESPN that the Broncos should be fined and a draft exam should be held as the league committee is investigating the failure to comply with COVID-19 safety protocols.
If fined, coach Vic Fangio will be fined $ 100,000 earlier this season for not wearing his mask, and the Broncos will be re-convicted.
