Siemian on track to start vs. Titans
nashville, tenn.» All signs point to Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian starting Sunday against the Titans.
Siemian was limited in practice last week with a left foot sprain and initially listed as questionable for the game. Coach Gary Kubiak said that he was encouraged by Siemian’s progress and that his game availability would likely be determined after Friday’s workout.
“Anyone that goes out there risks an injury,” Kubiak said Friday. “Talking to Greek (head athletic trainer Steve Antonopulos), it is what it is. There are certain ways they are trying to protect it and tape it. Bottom line, can you do what you need to do to play? He’s shown the last couple of days that he’s been doing that. We’ll just see how he feels.”
Siemian is 7-3 as a starter this season, but has missed two games — against Atlanta in Week 5 and at Jacksonville in Week 13 — because of separate injuries.
He injured his foot in overtime of the Broncos’ loss to Kansas City and, after wearing a protective boot for a few days, was fitted for an orthotic and returned to the field. Kubiak continued to give rookie Paxton Lynch extra reps in case he was called to start a second consecutive game on the road.
Lynch started last Sunday’s game against the Jaguars and notched his first career victory. But he completed only 12of-24 passes for 104 yards.
