The weirdest season in a long, long time just got even weirder.
We start in Denver, where every quarterback on the roster has been ruled ineligible for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints. Backup Jeff Driskel has tested positive and was placed on the COVID reserve list on Thursday. On Saturday, it was announced that every other quarterback on the roster -- Drew Lock, Brett Rypien, and Blake Bortles -- had been in close contact with Driskel without a mask and would ineligible this weekend. Broncos coach Vic Fangio said earlier this year that running back Royce Freeman would be the team's emergency quarterback; practice squad wide receiver Kendall Hinton also played quarterback for three seasons at Wake Forest.
Meanwhile, in San Francisco -- or, more precisely, Santa Clara -- the county has issued a ban on all contact sports over the next three weeks. The ban goes into effect on Monday, which means no practices or home games for the 49ers until December 21. That would affect two scheduled home games for the 49ers: a Monday night game on December 7 against the Buffalo Bills and a December 13 contest against the Washington Football Team. The team had no comment on Saturday afternoon. The 49ers are scheduled to play the Rams tomorrow afternoon in Los Angeles.
