Vance Joseph announced after practice that Trevor Siemian would start at quarterback in Thursday’s preseason game in Chicago. Paxton Lynch is scheduled to start the Broncos second preseason game on August 19th in San Francisco. Joseph said that the decision to start Trevor is not an indication of how the quarterback competition has been going during camp.
Don’t expect to see Todd Davis or T.J. Ward in action on Thursday. Both guys watched practice from the sidelines on Monday.
The Broncos held a quick ceremony for former special teams captain David Bruton after practice on Monday and presented him with a framed jersey. Bruton will join CBS4 sports anchor Michael Spencer for Xfinity Monday Live at the ViewHouse Centennial.
Garett Bolles, who is listed on the Broncos first preseason depth chart as the starter at left tackle, said after practice he doesn’t plan on taking that position for granted.
“I have four preseason games to earn my spot,” said Bolles. “Until it’s official on week one that doesn’t faze me, I just continue to work every single day.”
The Broncos will practice again on Tuesday beginning at 9:30 in the morning. The team will take Wednesday off as it travels to Chicago for Thursday’s first preseason game.
The Broncos released their first depth chart today. The starting quarterbacks are listed as “Trevor Siemian or Paxton Lynch.”
Other depth chart notes include:
Garett Bolles as the starter at left tackle
Max Garcia listed as starting left guard with Allen Barbre as the backup.
T.J. Ward and Shane Ray are both listed as starters despite being listed with injuries
2nd round pick DeMarcus Walker listed behind Von Miller at outside linebacker.
Shane Ray was in attendance at practice. It’s the first time we’ve seen Shane since his wrist surgery.
The Broncos practiced in helmets and shoulder pads with shorts as they begin preps for their first preseason game in Chicago on Thursday.
The Broncos practiced inside today due to the inclement weather and practice was not open to the public due to space concerns at the indoor facility.
