Kubiak instead pointed to other issues that are affecting their offensive production such as their running back and offensive line struggles.
Earlier in the day, Steve Wyche of NFL Media reported that Broncos QB Trevor Siemian is still dealing with “serious discomfort” in his non-throwing shoulder, which may explain some of his struggles in recent weeks.
The Broncos could always turn to first-round pick Paxton Lynch if they eventually decide the offense needs a boost, but it appears as though the coaching staff still has some concerns about him.
Siemian, 24, was taken in the seventh round of last year’s draft. He’s currently int he second year of his four-year, $2.33 million contract and set to make a base salary of $525,000 for the 2016 season.
Entering today’s game, Siemian had thrown for 1,770 yards while completing 59.8 percent of his passes to go along with 10 touchdowns and five interceptions. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 29 quarterback out of 34 qualifying players.
We’ll have more regarding the Broncos and a potential quarterback change as the news is available.
