Kubiak thinks Trevor Siemian could have returned to game if needed

The Broncos got their first regular season look at Paxton Lynch on Sunday afternoon in Tampa, but it doesn’t sound like the team expects to have reason for an extended look at the first-round pick in the coming weeks.

Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said after the game that he felt like Trevor Siemian could have returned to the game if needed after injuring his left shoulder during the second quarter of Denver’s 27-7 victory over the Buccaneers. Kubiak said the team views Siemian as day-to-day heading into next week.

There are multiple reports that Siemian sprained the AC joint in his non-throwing shoulder and that he’ll have more tests to determine the severity of the injury. The quarterback told Mike Rice of KOA that he’s sore, but confident that he’ll “get some treatment and get ready to go.”

Lynch was 14-of-24 for 170 yards and a touchdown in his first experience at full speed in the NFL, which was encouraging enough in the event Siemian can’t answer the bell against Atlanta. If he can, Lynch has now had a taste of the game that should help him if the team has to turn in his direction again in the future.

    Either of our QBs will light up the Atlanta defense. Matt Ryan will not have the time or results of today. Same for Julio Jones. Giod thing he got 309 yds today. It will make his two game average of 175 yards look good.

    Siemian’s durability is officially a concern

    He got hurt in the preseason trying to make a tackle and it didnt look that bad. He got slammed down pretty good today, but he will take worse hits through a season
