After he left the game Thursday night with a shoulder injury, many assumed Trevor Siemian would be lost for the season. This turned out to be correct. On Friday, Adam Schefter tweeted, “Broncos placing QB Trevor Siemian on IR with a shoulder injury; he’s done for season as Broncos go into off-season with QB questions.” Siemian is gone for the season. Beat writer, Mike Klis, tweeted from the team press conference on Friday, “Trevor Siemian has sublaxation, or partial dislocation, in left shoulder joint, league sources tell 9News. Will miss rest of season. Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch are up. #9sports … Vance Joseph said football people want to see Paxton Lynch play more. But hadn't made decision if he starts yet. Joseph said probably wouldn't sign a No. 3 QB. #9sports.” Footballguys.com own Cecil Lammey followed that up with a couple of tweets, “#Broncos Vance Joseph @1043TheFan "I'm not sure." on Brock starting at QB vs WAS … #Broncos Vance Joseph @1043TheFan "Paxton being a young guy, we want to see him play more, but we'll see." So, expect Paxton Lynch to start at least one of the final two games. The team will want to know whether to move on from both Lynch and Siemian after the year, or just Siemian. Osweiler is the likely candidate for the backup job next season with Chad Kelly or one of Lynch or Siemian as the QB3. The Broncos will either sign or draft their next starting quarterback.
