“I’ll miss him but I can’t imagine losing him”: Ritchie talks about his time with the Broncos and the NFL’s suspension of QB Paxton Lynch.
Posted October 16, 2019 11:14:14The Broncos are expected to release QB Paxt�s brother, but they�re still hopeful Paxton will be back next season.
The Broncos and Lynch�s attorney, Tom Condon, issued a joint statement Friday that said:�We�ve been informed that Paxton is eligible to play again this season.
We have no further comment.�On Wednesday, Broncos coach Vance Joseph said Lynch had a concussion and will miss the team�s season opener against the Cleveland Browns.
Lynch, a second-round draft pick of the Broncos in 2015, has played in three games for the team this season and has thrown three interceptions.
The former fifth-round pick has started seven games for Denver this season, throwing two touchdown passes and three interceptions in the process.
Vance Joseph was asked about Lynch and said he didn�t want to speculate about it.
Joseph said it is too soon to talk about Lynch� future.
He also didn�tt address the possibility that Paxt could be released at some point this season or that Lynch might not play again next season because of his concussion.
Paxton Lynch has been suspended four games for violating the league�s substance abuse policy.
Lynch�ll be a free agent in March.
The suspension means Lynch could miss a minimum of six weeks of practice time and two regular-season games.
Lynch played in just two games for Colorado in 2016 and one game for the Broncos last season.
Lynch was the Broncos� starter at quarterback for the last two seasons.
Lynch and the Broncos released a statement on Thursday afternoon:Lynch will be a restricted free agent and the team has no further comments at this time.
