The Denver Broncos find themselves in an unprecedented situation, with all of their quarterbacks ineligible to play Sunday due to COVID-19 concerns.
The team is expected to turn to Kendall Hinton as their emergency quarterback against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday with Drew Lock, Brett Rypien, and Blake Bortles sidelined after the trio reportedly didn't wear masks while coming in contact with fellow quarterback Jeff Driskel, who later tested positive for COVID-19.
Hinton has experience playing quarterback during his five years at Wake Forest but has never played a snap behind centre in the NFL — and was signed to the practice squad as a receiver.
The situation understandably drew plenty of reaction from around the football world:
