The Denver Broncos have put both team captain Trevor Siemian and rookie Isaiah McKenzie on the inactive list against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Siemian won the quarterback competition during the offseason and was named a team captain, but he was unable to translate those early successes into good quarterback play on the field. He will join fumble-prone McKenzie on the inactives list for the Broncos.
Also inactive today is tight end Jess Heuerman, cornerback Lorenzo Doss, linebacker DeMarcus Walker, offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandijo, and running back De’Angelo Henderson.
For the Bengals, they will be without cornerback Adam Jones, defensive tackle Josh Tupou, cornerback William Jackson, wide receiver John Ross, linebacker Kevin Minter, offensive lineman Alex Redmond, and offensive lineman Christian Westerman.
