Contact tracing is being performed, and Samia and anyone deemed a high-risk contact will not be permitted to travel with the team for tomorrow night’s game against the Bears. © Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports Samia, a 2019 fourth-rounder, started four games for Minnesota earlier this year before returning to a reserve role.

Jeff Driskel looking at the camera: The John Elway-created hellscape that has been the Broncos' quarterback situation since Peyton Manning's retirement after the 2015 season continues at full speed.

However, Driskel failed to follow that up against the Buccaneers in Week 3, which led head coach Vic Fangio to bench Driskel in favor of third-stringer Brett Rypien. Now, with the Jets to deal with on Thursday night, Fangio said Monday that he won't decide on a starter until sometime Tuesday. The recently-signed Blake Bortles is apparently not in the equation, as he hasn't had enough time to pick up Denver's offense.  Oof.  We're just gonna leave this here without comment. © AP The John Elway-created hellscape that has been the Broncos' quarterback situation since Peyton Manning's retirement after the 2015 season continues at full speed.
