Broncos and Falcons Injury report: Siemian sits out Wednesday's practice

New, comments

Here is your Wednesday Injury report for the Denver Broncos and the Atlanta Falcons

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The big news from today's practice session was that quarterback Trevor Siemian sat out the practice after suffering a shoulder injury during Sunday's game against the Bucs.

Kubiak has stated that Siemian doesn't need to practice to start, but needs to show that he is physically capable of doing so. Unless Siemian puts in a limited or full session in the coming days, this looks like it is coming down to be a game-time decision for the Broncos. This situation will obviously be monitored throughout the week.

The only other notable injury on the list is cornerback Kayvon Webster. He suffered the hamstring injury late in the game against the Bucs and is now sitting out Wednesday's practice. Hamstring injuries are a tricky bastard so his status may be in doubt for Sunday's game. If Webster does sit out it would be a big loss on the special teams side of the ball and hurt the Broncos cornerback depth against one of the better passing games in the league.

Now for some good news, starting tight end Virgil Green and starting right tackle Donald Stephenson returned to practice on a limited basis today. This is great news after the pair missed the past two games due to calf injuries. If they can make it through the week without having any setbacks I think we will see them out there on Sunday.

As for the Falcons, both their kicker and punter made the injury report with hamstring injuries. So that's not a great sign and something to watch during the week. The Falcons are also hurting at linebacker depth as they had three linebackers sit out today's practice. They also lost starting linebacker Sean Weatherspoon for the year and signed veteran A.J. Hawk to replace him in the lineup. So this unit is a bit banged up and hurting talent wise.
