After sitting out Wednesday's practice, quarterback Trevor Siemian returned to practice on Thursday in a limited fashion.

It's always a positive sign when a player practices but throwing a football doesn't really ease any of the concerns we have about Siemian's health. He injured his non-throwing shoulder, so I didn't think his ability to throw a football was ever in question. Can he continue to play through the pain, take a hit, and not aggravate this injury on Sunday? These are the important questions we do not have the answers too just yet.

It still seems like Siemian's availability will come down to the wire for the Broncos. Keep in mind they play the following Thursday Night, so they may opt to rest Siemian and have him for Thursday Night.

Speaking of Thursday Night, according to Troy Renck, starting right tackle Donald Stephenson is unlikely to play Sunday despite practicing because the team wants to have him for the Thursday Night game vs. the division rival San Diego Chargers.

So it appears that second-year tackle Ty Sambrailo will make another start at right tackle for the Broncos.

Tight End Jeff Heuerman was added to the injury report with a groin injury that he suffered sometime on Wednesday. No indications if this injury will hold him out of Sunday's game or not.

As for the Falcons, veteran pass rusher Dwight Freeney returned to practice after getting a day off on Wednesday. Guard Chris Chester and Tight End Jacob Tamme also put in full practices today after being limited on Wednesday.

Falcons kicker Matt Bryant put in a full practice after being limited yesterday, but punter Matt Bosher continues to sit out with a hamstring injury.
