Trevor Siemian appeared to have settled in as the Denver Broncos’ starting quarterback, but as soon as he looked comfortable, the 24-year-old was gone. On Sunday, Siemian was carted to the locker room with a shoulder injury later in the second quarter of Denver’s matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Siemian was injured after taking a bit hit from Clinton McDonald on a sack.
His non-throwing shoulder was hurt but we don’t know how serious it is. The fact that they had to cart him off means it’s likely serious. He is officially questionable to return.
Rookie Paxton Lynch replaced Siemian just before the half.
Siemian looked to have finally fully taken over as the Broncos quarterback last week, when he threw for 312 yards and four touchdowns in a 29-17 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. Before getting hurt this week, he had started well, completing 5 of 7 passes for 68 yards and a touchdown.
We’ll update you when we have more details on the injury.
