Broncos coach Vic Fangio has said rookie quarterback Drew Lock would get some limited work with the Broncos offense in practice as well as some scout team snaps. Thursday, Fangio was asked how many snaps, specifically, Lock was getting with the Broncos offense (does not include scout team snaps) and said: "Eight to 10, which doesn't sound like a lot, but the offense is only getting about 38, 39 snaps total. So, when you look at it that way it's pretty significant.''

Broncos coach Vic Fangio said cornerback Bryce Callahan (foot), who had practiced for the first time since July on Tuesday, was not expected to practice Thursday. Callahan also did not practice Wednesday. "It's looking more and more like he'll go to IR at some point unless we have a change,'' Fangio said. Asked if that could be the move to formally get wide receiver Tim Patrick moved from injured reserve to the roster this weekend, Fangio added "Possibly, yeah.''

Broncos items from Wednesday: --Tackle Ja'Wuan James (knee) was practicing on a limited basis and cornerback Bryce Callahan (foot)was not. --Rookie quarterack Drew Lock was taking some scout team snaps and coach Vic Fangio said he would get a few snaps with the Broncos offense as well. --Fangio said the offense will get more snaps overall this week than the defense to give Brandon Allen ready for Sunday's game as well as give Lock and Brett Rypien enough work as well.

Also for the Broncos Tuesday, cornerback Bryce Callahan, who the team has kept on the active roster since the start of the regular season, was participating in practice for the first time since the first week of training camp. He had a stem cell treatment on his foot -- he had a fracture repaired last December -- earlier this season.

Rookie quarterback Drew Lock was indeed practicing Tuesday for the Broncos. It's his first practice since he suffered a right thumb injury Aug. 19 against the San Francisco 49ers and officially starts the clock on his potential return from injured reserve. Also, wide receiver Tim Patrick was doing plenty of work in the offense and on special teams and looks ready to return to the roster from injured reserve.

And in other player news, Broncos coach Vic Fangio said cornerback Bryce Callahan, who hasn't practiced since the first week of training camp because of a foot injury, will try to practice Tuesday. Asked if Callahan was trying to gauge his recovery or was practicing with the intent of trying to play this season, Fangio said: "(To) see where he's at.''

And Vic Fangio also added this on whether the team's performance over the next three weeks would influence any decision on Drew Lock: "Our whole focus is trying to get to 4-6, as bad as that sounds, we're trying to win the game we play this week, how that, whether that includes, or doesn't include Drew down the road remains to be seen.''

Jeff Legwold ESPN Senior Writer 

And on whether Brandon Allen's performance in the coming weeks as well as the team's performance in the coming weeks would impact the decision on whether Drew Lock is eventually added to the roster, Vic Fangio said: "That's part of the equation also.'' Asked if Allen played well that would impact what the Broncos do with Lock for the remainder of the season, Fangio said "yeah.''

Jeff Legwold ESPN Senior Writer 

Vic Fangio said the decision as to whether Lock will be moved off of injured reserve or not has not yet been made. On what he needed to see to make that call, Fangio said: "Good quarterback play, that he belongs.'' Asked if that meant his description of other players that "you know it when you see it'' would apply to Lock as well, Fangio said: "Yeah, it does, that's the truth.''

Jeff Legwold ESPN Senior Writer 

Broncos coach Vic Fangio said rookie quarterback Drew Lock will begin practicing this week and a decision will be made in the coming weeks about whether or not to move Lock to the active roster -- "You've got to remember this guy hasn't taken a snap or been in a huddle since the middle of August, or early August ... (the plan) is not mapped out because it's going to be determined by how he looks and what we think.''
