Broncos HC Vance Joseph said Monday that they’ve placed QB Trevor Siemian on injured reserve with a shoulder injury, per Cecil Lammey.
Siemian suffered a subluxation, or partial dislocation, of his left shoulder during last Week’s game against the Colts. The good news for Siemian is that this injury won’t require surgery and will instead need just rest and rehab.
The Broncos are expected to see if Paxton Lynch can return as the team’s starter this week and finish out the season for them. Otherwise, they could turn back to Brock Osweiler.
Siemian, 25, is a former seventh-round pick of the Broncos back in 2015. He’s in the third year of his four-year, $2.33 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $615,000 for the 2017 season.
In 2017, Siemian had thrown for 2,285 yards while completing 59 percent of his passes to go along with 12 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 37 quarterback out of 38 qualifying players.
