AC joint sprain for Trevor Siemian; MRI coming Monday

Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said he could have put quarterback Trevor Siemian back in the game on Sunday at Tampa. Whether Kubiak will be able to put Siemian in the game at all next Sunday against the Falcons remains to be seen.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Siemian has an AC joint sprain in his non-throwing shoulder. An MRI will be performed on Monday.

According to another source, it won’t be a surprise if Siemian misses a game, maybe two, as the shoulder heals.

As a practical matter, any absence from Siemian would open the door for first-rounder Paxton Lynch to swipe the starting job. If he performs well (and perform well he did on Sunday in relief of Siemian, completing 14 of 24 for 170 yards and a touchdown), Kubiak can apply the time-honored “100 percent rule” to Siemian, allowing Kubiak to ride Lynch’s hand while it’s hot — and then to bench him without benching him by declaring Siemian to be 100 percent, if/when Lynch cools off.

Regardless of who the quarterback is, the Broncos keep rolling. Just like last year, when the quarterback play was far shakier than it’s been to date in 2016.

    Kubiak is gonna win a game with his backup rookie QB? OMG. He’s the greatest ever along with Belichick. LOL. Fans are such morons. Kubiak will be 9-2 without the great Peyton AKA Noodle Arm/ Mr. HGH. It’s amazing what a coach can do with a talented team and some good coordinators.

    I have been waiting to see how Paxton would play with the 1st team offense but I really wanted him to ride the bench this year and really learn the offense under center and not just from shotgun as he did in college. Also, with Semian playing how he’s been it would be nice to see what interest other teams like Chicago would have in him as Cutlers days are numbed

    Said it before and I’ll say it again, they won it all last year getting next to nothing from the QB position, they were that good. There’s no reason to think they should miss a beat with what they have there this year. Barring major injury the Broncos will be one of the last few teams standing. Denver is legit and no matter the media’s wish that it were otherwise TB is not

    As of today, with these 2 kid QB’s the Broncos are 4th in the NFL in scoring on a pace for 444 points!
    With the dominating defense they already have, this team could be MUCH better than they were last year.

    Officials have been knowed to fudge on tacky tacky calls if they dont like how much you win. People will accuse you of cheating and call you fans stupid for supporting them. Some people say they take advantage if your star players are not starting its a provable fact.

    If I were Siemian I’d be playing. Don’t give your high draft pick backup a chance to see the field.

  8. yourunclerico says: Oct 3, 2016 10:49 AM

    um.. you beat the bucs….
    barely beat the colts…
    and had plenty of help ala the WWNFL on the first two games.
    lets not get ahead of ourselves. without the refs you would be legitimately be 1-3, maybe 2-2.

    Just ask for a helping from Gomer’s wife with that Chinese roid stash from Guyer.

    That’s what the whole team is on now anyway.

    .
    even tony romo could work as QB on this team, well until he falls down…

    People are assuming Broncos are some great team this year yet they have yet to face a good team this season.
    They beat teams like The Panthers who did not play well at all the first 3 games of the season, they beat the colts who are terrible. Broncos beat the Bengals who are not as good as last season and were in a slump. Broncos also beat the Bucs who are also one of the worst teams in the NFL…
    Wait until the broncos have to play The Raiders and Chiefs or Patriots. Broncos will show their true colors then.. Broncos have an easy schedule and they are overly hyped. Let’s be honest, they had no business beating Patriots in the playoffs last year. They won Superbowl because Cam Netwon chokes in big games

    I wouldn’t wet your pants over a quarterback beating one of the worst teams in the league.

    Listen to yourself! I reckon they had no business beating Pittsburgh in the divisional round or NE earlier in the season.

    At some point you look ridiculous. Denver wins at home, Denver wins on the road, Denver wins in the regular season, Denver wins in the playoffs, Denver wins against the new-style young QBs and Denver wins against the Old Guard. Denver just wins. They’ve done this consistently for years now.

    Stop with your sour grapes.

    you mean the chiefs who got blown up last night?, and the patw ho couldn’t score, and the raiders who have waon all their games in the last second?…..you’re dumb

    Some people need to think before they type. Not a broncos fan at all. But who have the pats played? And who are they playing next week?

  17. bullcharger says: Oct 3, 2016 12:26 PM

    How is it I have never heard of an AC joint injury and the Garoppolo and Siemian both went down with it in a few weeks. Was it just called a sprained shoulder before?

  18. mrmcdougle says: Oct 3, 2016 12:47 PM

    There is not a team in the AFC that is better. I wouldn’t be shocked with back to back SB appearances.

    Then why did they switch QB twice during the season?

  20. sc5000 says: Oct 3, 2016 1:26 PM

    Why do all you clowns keep trying to discredit Denver??? Last I checked they won their last 3 games by 2 scores! Too funny!

    After they demolish the Falcons everyone will come up with a reason why they aren’t good either. Too Funny!

  21. nhpats says: Oct 3, 2016 1:45 PM

    Let’s be real here. The Broncos are the champs and are currently undefeated. They have beat the teams on their schedule. They remain the team to beat.

    I for one look forward to the Patriots / Broncos matchup later this season. I hope both teams are healthy and we get to see some great competitive football.
