Denver Broncos Head Coach Gary Kubiak is clairvoyant. The wise leader knew exactly what was on everyone’s mind today: the status of Quarterback Trevor Siemian. Without hesitation, and a sheepish, tongue in cheek look, Kubiak addressed the second year player’s situation, “You all (want to) know how Trevor was today?”
After laughter from the media subsided, Kubiak continued, “He did a little bit more, took more reps in practice. We’ll continue to see how he comes out of it. We have 48 hours here so we’ll see how he comes out of it tomorrow, how he’s feeling, but he took a lot more today so we’ll see where he’s at.”
From my perspective, Siemian threw the football better today than yesterday. He was able to pass the ball this morning with less discomfort from his non-throwing shoulder. It was a positive step toward playing on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons, Kubiak expressed his observations, “Me watching him move and watching him make the full throws. We moved him around a little bit today, something we didn’t do yesterday, so just go back and look at the big picture of what’s going on. We’ll probably work him a little bit more tomorrow than we normally would a player on a Saturday just to take a look, but he’s made progress every day.”
Keyvon Webster was ruled out for Sunday’s contest. Webster is dealing with a hamstring issue. Look for Corner Back Lorenzo Doss to take his place. Tight End Virgil Green and Offensive Tackle Donald Stephenson, both rehabbing calf injuries, practiced on a limited basis this week. They will be game time decisions.
