ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (CBS4) – Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said starting quarterback Trevor Siemian did not take reps practice Wednesday, and is still really sore but making progress.
Three days after spraining his left shoulder during Denver’s win at Tampa Bay, Trevor Siemian was in uniform but not throwing the football. Siemian just watched as backup quarterback Paxton Lynch and third stringer Austin Davis took all of the throws.
Kubiak said at this point Lynch needs the reps more to make sure he is ready just in case, and that a final decision on who plays could be made as late as Sunday.
Siemian said Wednesday that he feels better than he did on Tuesday, and is taking it “one day at a time.”
He said his mindset is he will start on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons. He said he hasn’t even tested his arm yet so at this point he doesn’t really know how close is he to practicing.
C.J. Anderson and Emmanuel Sanders have both said the offense doesn’t really change between Siemian and Paxton Lynch, and they try not and put too much emphasis on the QB position, just do their jobs.
Virgil Green and Donald Stephenson were also both at practice and participating after missing the last 2 games with calf injuries.
