Joe Flacco won’t be on the field for the Denver Broncos this weekend.

According to a tweet from the NFL, the Broncos starting QB has been ruled out with a neck injury, and Brandon Allen will replace him. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

If you’re a fan of the Broncos, I think you’re more than justified smashing the panic button right now.

The team is currently 2-6, the starting quarterback is now out and a guy nobody has really ever heard of is taking over.

If that’s not a recipe for disaster, then I simply don’t know what is.

To make matters substantially worse, the Broncos are also considering placing Flacco on injured reserve, according to Ian Rapoport.

The fact a guy nobody knows is starting instead of second round pick Drew Lock should tell you everything you need to know about the rookie’s development.

Lock must be nowhere near being ready to play if Brandon Allen is starting.

We’ll see what happens down the stretch, but it looks like the Broncos are in serious trouble.
