Broncos Place QB Joe Flacco on Injured Reserve

The season is over for Broncos quarterback Joe Flacco, as Friday the team placed him on injured reserve according to NFL.com

The move isn’t a shock based on the fact he is expected to miss the next four to six weeks with a neck injury, suffered in a loss this past weekend in Indianapolis against the Colts.

The team will will start relative unknown Brandon Allen at quarterback Sunday when the Broncos take on the Cleveland Browns in Denver.

Denver also promoted Brett Rypien off the practice squad to serve as the backup.

As far as the future with Flacco, he’s due $20.25 million in 2020, none of it guaranteed, which means that it’s likely they will move on from him once the season is over.
