Siemian misses practice, still considered day to day
Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian did not practice Thursday for the second day in a row because of his sprained left foot. Rookie Paxton Lynch and veteran Austin Davis again shared all the practice reps, preparing in case Siemian is unable to play Sunday at Jacksonville.
Siemian remains in a walking boot, but coach Gary Kubiak said Siemian is still day to day and hasn’t ruled him out for Sunday’s game.
“Feeling better today,” Kubiak said Thursday of Siemian. “But same process.”
Kubiak said he and the Broncos’ trainers will reassess Siemian on Friday, with hope of testing his injured foot before the team travels to Jacksonville. Kubiak also said Siemian is being fitted for an insert in his cleats.
Lynch has said that he feels more confident this time around should he get his second start. He made his NFL debut in the second half of the Broncos’ win at Tampa Bay in early October, when Siemian injured his left shoulder, and made his first start in a loss to Atlanta the following week.
“I feel confident in me and I feel confident in the guys around me,” Lynch said Wednesday. “Walking around the locker room, you can tell that these guys are hungry to get another win.”
