Mizzou reunion? Albert Okwuegbunam set to make NFL debut as Drew Lock returns from injury
The Denver Broncos drafted former Mizzou QB Drew Lock in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft. In the 2020 draft, the team picked ex-Mizzou TE Albert Okwuegbunam.
Albert O has yet to make his debut as he works his way up the depth chart, but with top TE Noah Fant out with an injury for Sunday’s game, Albert O is active for the first time:

Meanwhile, Lock is also active again after suffering a shoulder injury earlier this season and missing the last few games.
The Broncos haven’t announced whether Lock will start or not, but if he’s healthy, he seems like a good bet to replace Brett Rypien, who has filled in recently.
Will Lock look for his old Mizzou receiving threat? We’ll find out as they take on the New England Patriots on Sunday afternoon.
