. . ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The Denver Broncos won't have any of their four quarterbacks available on Sunday when they take on the New Orleans Saints over coronavirus concerns, several people familiar with the NFL's investigation told The Associated Press. One person told The AP that starter Drew Lock, backup Brett Rypien, and training team veteran Blake Bortles were considered high-risk close ties with No. . 3 Quarterback Jeff Driskel on Wednesday, the day before Driskel tested positive for COVID-19. Another person, who also spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the sensitive issue, said the four quarterbacks did not appear to be wearing their masks all the time, as the league's pandemic protocols dictated. People spoke to The AP on condition of anonymity because the NFL and Broncos made no announcements after Lock, Rypien and Bortles were ordered from the practice field into isolation on Saturday. The Broncos battled it out to prepare rookie receivers Kendall Hinton and No.. Royce Freeman runs back to share snaps on quarterback Sunday when Denver (4-6) receives the Saints (8-2). . Hinton was the college quarterback for three seasons and Freeman is the team's emergency QB. The NFL gave the Broncos permission to train on Thanksgiving after Driskel tested positive for the virus, and again on Friday after kick-returner Deontae Spencer along with two employees tested positive. However, coach Vic Fangio decided to close the building on Friday and the team held meetings remotely. Lock, Rypien and Bortles loosened up before Saturday's brief walkthrough when they were pulled off the field and sent home. They must be quarantined for several days and must continue next week to return. . .
. . PISCATAWAY, N. . J. . (AP) - Michigan had to switch quarterbacks, work three hours overtime and play for about 4 1/2 hours to avoid the worst start to the football program in 53 years. It was worth it. Hassan Haskins finished fourth from less than a meter in extra time and the Wolverines lost three games on Saturday night by overtaking Rutgers 48-42. "This win means a lot," said defender Chris Hinton. "It is the first step to get back on track. We didn't quit. We just kept swinging. The guy who took the biggest blows was second quarterback Cade McNamara, who replaced starter Joe Milton late in the second quarter. He threw four touchdown passes and ran for another when Michigan (2-3, 2-3 Big Ten) presented Rutgers (1-4, 1-4) with his fourth straight loss. "Cade was excellent," said Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh, who had the worst start with his team in his six-year tenure. "Really gritty. Really gritty performance in every way. His play was inspiring. I can't say enough great things. Michigan missed the 2-point conversion after Haskins touchdown, but safety Daxton Hill intercepted Noah Vedone's desperation to move from the 24-yard line to the end zone to end the game. It was the second straight week that Rutgers coach Greg Schiano put his team in the lead in the second half. "There were a lot of people who were really badly injured," said Schiano. “Needless to say, some people in the field really lost their courage. You know we're not there yet. We're just not quite there yet. And we'll keep chopping and keep working. We will get there. Vedral threw down an 11-yard touchdown pass to Aron Cruickshank, then carried two defenders into the end zone. . .
