Rypien is expected start against the New York Jets, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

Rypien, a former undrafted free agent out of Boise State, entered Sunday’s game with the Broncos trailing 28-10 and about 10 minutes remaining. He played just one series, completing 8-of-9 passes for 53 yards and an interception. Despite the pick, Broncos head coach Vic Fangio obviously wants to see what Rypien can do as a starter.

Broncos starting quarterback Drew Lock is out with a rotator cuff injury, and it sounds possible he could beat his original timeline of missing four to five weeks. Denver is 0-3 and will likely continue to struggle whether Driskel or Rypien is under center.
