Kubiak: Plan is for Trevor Siemian to be in there Sunday

Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian suffered an AC joint sprain in his left, non-throwing shoulder in Sunday’s victory over the Buccaneers, leaving his status for Week Five against the Falcons in some doubt.

Coach Gary Kubiak said after the game that he thought Siemian could have returned if the team needed to replace Paxton Lynch and Monday brought more news from the coach that suggests a low level of worry about Siemian’s condition.

“Our plans moving forward are for Trevor to be there Sunday and be ready to go, but he’s day to day,” Kubiak said on Denver Sports 760, via the team’s website.

Kubiak said that the plan wouldn’t need to be altered if Siemian is limited in practices this week. Siemian played in a preseason game under similar circumstances after he hurt his right shoulder.

Kubiak said Lynch “handled himself well” in his first regular season appearance while going 14-of-24 for 170 yards and a touchdown to Emmanuel Sanders.

  1. I guess it really doesn’t matter who plays for the Broncos…you know, because all of the refs cheat for them, and the NFL front office cheats for them, and everyone that they play has SO MANY injuries that they can barely field a team, and, and, and, they’re all just a bunch of cheaters and dirty players. No wonder they win all the time!

    Siemian should be traded at the end of the year and Lynch should start.

    ——————–

    The best QB should play. I know they put a 1st round pick into Lynch but best man should be starter.

  3. They might need to score a few points this weekend with Atlanta coming to town. Should be an interesting matchup. Best D in the league against that offense? Must see TV.

  4. .
    aka Paxton is starting.
    This is really getting old.
    Denvers defense is the problem lying about what QB is pointless

    you must be new to football.
    the offense matters not when it meets up with a superior Defense.
    18-1. 2008 Superbowl please watch that and get back to us on how THAT offense did

  6. It really doesn’t matter who plays, and Kubiak isn’t going to give any clues. John Elway is way ahead of everyone when it comes to evaluating QBs. The Broncos broke records with Peyton Manning and won a super bowl. Brock Osweiler is looking good, and he’s still very inexperienced. He’ll get better. Siemian should have been a first round pick. He’s very inexperienced, and he’ll get better. Paxton Lynch is the best of all these QBs. He’ll be awesome. As good or better than Carson Wentz. As we saw yesterday and last year, you need two good QBs to make it through a season. It must suck to be a Broncos hater.

    Pipe down Sally… no one is knocking the Broncos D. They are fantastic. But the ATL O is no joke. If you think Denver will completely shut them down I think you’ll be mistaken. Denver will need to score 21+ to win the game on Sunday.

  8. Here’s a fun fact: Denver is the #5 offense (27.0 points/game scored) and the #5 defense (16.0 points/game allowed). The defense is of course giving the offense some short fields with all the forced turnovers, but this offense is no longer just sitting on the ride. The offense has been getting better and better each week, primarily with turning FGs into TDs in the red zone. At this rate, this year’s Denver team will be superior to last year’s team — the big question will be whether the other teams have improved enough since last year to overtake them.

    Keep him upright so Mack and Irvin can finish him off later this year.

    You mean the Mack that just got his first sack yesterday and the Irvin who got his second? Yeah ok.

    Number 1 in yards allowed and sacks – which IMO is the best indication of how dominating a defense is. Points can come off of turning the ball over in your own territory, special teams etc. So points allowed can be a bit skewed.

    Not a Broncos’ fan, but I think Phillips is smart enough to know that if Julio is tearing up the field in single coverage, perhaps a little double coverage is warranted. Also, the Broncos will be putting a little bit more pressure on Ryan than what he has seen from the Saints and Panthers.
    I know Julio is good as I’ve watched him from his days at Alabama, but unless your D has just been kidnapped or something, there’s no excuse for letting a WR getting that kind of yardage in a game.
    I don’t think the Broncos will “completely shut them down” but I will not be surprised if they keep the Falcons below 21pts. One more point, the Falcons are not conditioned to play at their pace at a mile high altitude. Most teams aren’t in any sport.
