Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock (thumb) is slated to return to practice in Week 11 in the lead up to the team's Nov. 17 game against the Minnesota Vikings, according to general manager John Elway, who added that the decision whether or not to reinstate Lock from IR would come down to how well he's 'mentally adapting' to the offense.
Huddle Up: With Joe Flacco hurting, it looks like we could be seeing Brandon Allen for the next few weeks, which doesn't look like great news for anyone on Denver's offense, though we'll reserve judgment until actually seeing Allen on the field. As for Lock, he might get some live reps as the season winds down, but his fantasy value remains exclusive to keeper leagues.

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock (thumb) is the future, but general manager John Elway said Wednesday, Oct. 23 in a radio interview that the rookie is nowhere near ready to return to action after spending all season on the Reserve/Injured list due to a sprained right thumb. 'The most important thing with a young quarterback is not to put him out there before he's ready,' Elway said. 'If you don't put him in a situation where he has a chance to be successful and he's not successful, the whole roof will cave in.'
Huddle Up: The roof has caved in on Denver's season, as they're just 2-5 and they traded top receiver Emmanuel Sanders to the San Francisco 49ers. However, it appears it is Joe Flacco's ship to steer for now. Lock remains worthy of a roster spot only in long-term dynasty formats.
