Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco (neck) is expected to undergo an MRI next month to determine whether or not he'll need surgery on his injured neck. Flacco also told reporters Monday, Dec. 30, that he would be open to returning to the Broncos as Drew Lock's backup but also hinted about the possibility he could retire if the results of the MRI are not positive.

Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco (neck) and LB Corey Nelson (bicep) will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Nov. 1.
Huddle Up: Barring an unlikely return from IR in December, Flacco's season is done. This leaves the untested Brandon Allen as the team's starting QB for the foreseeable future with rookie Brett Rypien serving as the backup until second-round pick Drew Lock is ready to come off IR himself.

Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco (neck) could be placed on the Reserve/Injured list with a neck injury, and head coach Vic Fangio said a decision on that could be coming in the next few days.
Huddle Up: It's not looking promising for Flacco or the Broncos' pass-catchers as we're likely to have untested QBs Brandon Allen and Drew Lock under center for the rest of the fantasy season.

Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco (neck) could be out five or six weeks, and he'll receive a second opinion. Surgery is unlikely, and his career is not in jeopardy.
Huddle Up: The team has been unwilling to consider putting Drew Lock under center, but an extended absence for Flacco could accelerate that process. Flacco wasn't worth using except in two-quarterback leagues. Lock is a long-term chip that has little value in single-year formats. Brandon Allen is expected to start this week and has no value except as a cheap DFS flyer.

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco (neck) is still being evaluated for his neck injury, and the team is strongly considering placed him on the season-ending Reserve/Injured list.
Huddle Up: Flacco has officially been ruled out for Week 9, so Brandon Allen will make the start. Drew Lock is also on the roster and is the future in the Mile High City. If you have been using Flacco for fantasy purposes to this point, it's time to cut bait whether he lands on IR or not.

Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco (neck) is dealing with a herniated disc in his neck, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Flacco is expected to miss at least one week because of the injury and could miss more depending on the severity. Brandon Allen will be the starting quarterback in Week 9 but should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco (neck) has been ruled out for Week 9 against the Cleveland Browns, according to head coach Vic Fangio.
Huddle Up: Second-round pick Drew Lock isn't considered ready to play quarterback in the NFL quite yet by this regime, leaving only Brandon Allen and practice-squader Brett Rypien as candidates to make the start against the Browns. Allen should be considered the favorite, although it's hard to get overly excited about Allen after he was claimed off waivers from the Los Angeles Rams late this summer. While Flacco hasn't done much with Denver, Allen's temporary promotion figures to be a downgrade for the entire offense.
