On Saturday, fellow quarterbacks Drew Lock, Brett Rypien, and Blake Bortles were caught not wearing masks while at the team facility and were deemed high-risk close contacts, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
The quarterbacks were pulled off the field and sent home to quarantine.
Fangio said Saturday morning before the developments at quarterback that there were no new COVID-19 cases and he reiterated that he had no worries about his other QBs getting sick because contract tracing had shown they hadn't been within 6 feet of Driskel before he tested positive. In two seasons, he's started 13 games and missed 14.
While Broncos tight end Noah Fant seemed apprehensive in a Twitter post about the team's situation, wide receiver Jerry Jeudy and linebacker Von Miller took to social media to try to make light of it. "An honest mistake, but one I will own", Lock wrote in a statement. "Doing the right thing for a majority of the time is not good enough".
