According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Denver Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian is expected to undergo an MRI on his shoulder after injuring it last night against the Giants.
Broncos QB Trevor Siemian expected to undergo MRI on left shoulder Monday, per @Jeff_Legwold. Broncos fear similar AC injury as last year.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 16, 2017
Per Schefter, the Broncos fear Siemian suffered a similar AC Joint injury that he had last season. If you remember, Siemian suffered a shoulder injury last season against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He ended up only missing one game, but his play really slipped after that point and was a factor in the Broncos second half collapse. He also had offseason surgery to repair that shoulder that sidelined him for a few months, so this is something to keep an eye on, especially if it’s another severe AC joint sprain.
After five games, Siemian has totaled 1,264 yards, 8 touchdowns, 6 interceptions, and is completing 61.4% of his passes. However, in his last three games, Siemian has totaled only two touchdowns and four interceptions.
If Siemian were to miss any time because of this injury, It would be Brock Osweiler who would take over the role as the starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos. Former first-round pick Paxton Lynch just recently started throwing, so I doubt he is close to even being ready at this point.
