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.”
