Denver quarterback Teddy Bridgewater remains in the concussion protocol and the Broncos are preparing to play without him in Week 17.

Drew Lock will likely get a second consecutive start Sunday against the host Los Angeles Chargers if Bridgewater is unable to return.

Lock threw for 153 yards in a Week 16 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders, Denver’s second consecutive defeat.

Bridgewater, 29, was hospitalized after Denver’s Week 15 game against Cincinnati. He was taken off the field on a stretcher in the third quarter after a hard fall.

The Broncos (7-8) face long odds to make the playoffs after their 17-13 loss to the Raiders. They are the 13th seed heading into their clash with the Chargers (8-7).
