PITTSBURGH (KDVR) – Denver Broncos quarterback Drew Lock will not return to Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers after injuring his shoulder.

The injury came on a sack in the first quarter that resulted in a turnover.

During the resulting Steelers drive, Lock remained in the sideline injury tent and was eventually taken to the locker room.

Early in the second quarter the team ruled him out for the remainder of the game.

It’s unclear what the extent of Lock’s shoulder injury is or if there is risk of him missing future games.
