Trevor Siemian starting tonight for Broncos

The Broncos listed Trevor Siemian as questionable for tonight’s game against the Chargers, and it appears they’ve answered their own question.

Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, Siemian will start tonight, after missing a game and a half with an AC strain in his left (non-throwing shoulder).

This one was pretty much #asexpected, since Siemian took all the first time reps in practice this week. The Broncos termed his involvement as limited, but the signs have been pointing this way all week.

Paxton Lynch was decidedly OK in mopping up against the Buccaneers when Siemian was originally hurt, but decided less than OK in last week’s loss to the Falcons.

As strange as it sounds when you compare their resumes, the Broncos should get a boost when the former seventh-rounder who played one snap last year returns to the field.
