The Denver Broncos were apparently so desperate for a QB that they actually considered playing some of their assistant coaches at QB on Sunday.

On Saturday night, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the Broncos’ entire QB unit were ruled out for their game against the Saints after they were exposed to Jeff Driskel, who tested positive due to Covid-19.

According to Denver 9 News’s Mike Klis, the Broncos asked the NFL if they could play one of their assistant coaches in the game but the league denied their request.

The Broncos were eventually forced to settle with former Wake Forest QB Kenny Hinton who was on the practice squad as a wide receiver.
