Denver Broncos starting quarterback Trevor Siemian has a shoulder injury that could force him to miss the next two games. Broncos fans can now relax after NFL rumors of the QB being out for most of the season has been proved false, according to team insiders.
Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reports that according to his sources, the reports state that Siemian would just miss the next few games. However, an MRI on the shoulder will reveal more medical information on the injury and that’s when the Broncos will officially announce Siemian’s status.
Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak stated in a radio interview that Siemian’s injury is “going to be a day-to-day thing,” which means that he could comeback soon and the injury is not major.
“He’s very sore and, obviously, it’s not going to affect his ability to throw the ball. But what happens, all the mechanics of your body and the movement, the torque, that’s what he’s going to have to work through,” Kubik stated via SiriusXM NFL Radio.
“So we’ll take it day-by-day and keep repping them all like we always do, but hopefully Trevor will be able to answer the bell this Sunday. He’s very capable of playing without practice time. He’s a very bright young man, so we’ll just take it day-to-day.”
Meanwhile, Siemian was positive he would be back healthy for the Broncos soon.
“Obviously you want to get all the physical reps and be out there and actually doing the work and putting the time in but that’s one of the things I’ve learned you’ve got to be good at, as well: mental reps and making them count,” Siemian stated to denverbroncos.com.
“I think that’s something [Quarterback Coach Greg] Knapp will help me out with and [Offensive Coordinator Rick Dennison] and [Head Coach Gary Kubiak]. I think we’ll be all right there.”
The Broncos, who won last season’s Super Bowl, are 4-0 this season. They will face the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.
