In the absence of quarterback Russell Wilson, who will miss tomorrow's game against the Jets due to injury, the Denver Broncos don't exactly have a ton of choices at the position.
But sooner or later, the Broncos had to make a formal declaration. The Broncos announced on Saturday that Brett Rypien will start on Sunday.
The Broncos have activated quarterback Josh Johnson from their practice squad in an effort to increase the number of quarterbacks on the field.
In 2021, the 36-year-old quarterback lost his sole start while playing for the Baltimore Ravens, completing 67.1 percent of his throws for 638 yards and five touchdowns.
However, Johnson is a good candidate to be mentioned because he participated in three Jets games last year
and is likely familiar with the system that will be deployed against the Broncos' No. 3 defense.
