Siemian participates in team walkthrough
Quarterback expected to practice on Thursday
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.
