It was reported early Monday morning by ESPN’s Adam Schefter that Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian will likely undergo an MRI on his shoulder and that they fear he suffered another AC-joint injury. Well, thankfully for the Broncos and Siemian, the results of that MRI came back negative and he will play Sunday against the Chargers.
Trevor Siemian will play Sunday, MRI on left shoulder came out negative. #9sports— Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) October 16, 2017
This is good news considering that he suffered a reportedly grade-5 AC-joint injury last season that required offseason surgery. If it happened again, it would likely sideline him multiple weeks. Thankfully he avoided any serious damage and is good enough to play Sunday against the Chargers.
His shoulder will still be something to monitor. Siemian has held onto the ball a bit longer than he should have, has ran into some sacks, and been a tad wreckless while running with the ball. So injuring the shoulder further could happen if he doesn’t be more careful. What also adds to that risk is both Menelik Watson and Billy Turner being hurt. Watson went down with a calf injury and the player who replaced him, Billy Turner, broke his hand and requires surgery. So the starting right tackle may very well be Donald Stephenson as they prepare to take on Melvin Ingram and Joey Bosa.
Stay warm Osweiler.
Funny tweet of the day:
I always enjoy a good troll, and Mark Potash of the Chicago-Sun Times trolled Bears fans pretty good on Monday night.
He tweeted out “BREAKING NEWS: #Bears and Fox announce 5-year extension”.

Naturally, the entire internet quickly thought that the Bears gave Head Coach John Fox a five-year extension for whatever reason. Well, thankfully for Bears fans, it was only with FOX32, not John Fox.
Mark Potash has jokes.
