Bron­cos quar­ter­back Trevor Siemian par­tic­i­pated in the team’s walk­through Wed­nes­day on a lim­ited ba­sis. It was his first on-field work since sprain­ing his left foot against Kansas City on Nov. 27, a promis­ing sign that he might be able to play Sun­day at Ten­nessee.

“I’m feel­ing bet­ter,” Siemian said. “Still tak­ing it one day at a time. But I think to­day went well and feel like I’ve got­ten bet­ter ev­ery day. … I think any in­jury is frus­trat­ing, es­pe­cially when you’re miss­ing time. It’s tough, but I’m not the only one who has to deal with in­juries, es­pe­cially at this time of year.”

Siemian sprained his foot in the over­time pe­riod against the Chiefs and, de­spite fin­ish­ing the game and throw­ing for a ca­reer­high 368 pass­ing yards and three touch­downs, he ex­pe­ri­enced sore­ness the day af­ter. He wore a pro­tec­tive boot last week and did not play at Jack­sonville this past Sun­day.

He has since been fit­ted for cus­tom or­thotics and on Wed­nes­day split prac­tice rep­e­ti­tions with rookie quar­ter­back Pax­ton Lynch dur­ing the walk­through. Bron­cos coach Gary Ku­biak said his plan is to pre­pare both quar­ter­backs for Sun­day’s game against the Ti­tans. Siemian is ex­pected to prac­tice Thurs­day.

At 8-4, the Bron­cos sit in third place in the AFC West and sixth in the con­fer­ence. Af­ter fac­ing the Ti­tans, they host the Pa­tri­ots, take on the Chiefs in Kansas City and then close out the sea­son against the Raiders in Den­ver.
