Denver Broncos rookie quarterback Drew Lock appeared to injure his right (throwing) hand during tonight's preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Lock was hurt while falling to the ground attempting to escape a pass rush. The good news is that the injury doesn't appear to be serious.

According to veteran Broncos scribe Mike Klis, X-rays on Lock's hand were negative.

Here is a closer look at how Lock was injured. The play happened on the first drive of the second half.

Before leaving tonight's game, Lock completed 7-of-12 passes for 40 yards and also rushed twice for 11 yards.

Denver's second-round pick out of Missouri this April, Lock struggled in his first preseason action against the Atlanta Falcons. However, he showed signs of progress in his second game against the Seattle Seahawks, throwing for 180 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

He flashed again a few times tonight before being injured. Fortunately, it looks like he and the Broncos dodged a major bullet.
