TAMPA, Fla. – Trevor Siemian has been one of the best feel-good stories of this young season, leading the defending Super Bowl champion Broncos to a promising start following the retirement of Peyton Manning.
Although Denver won 27-7 at Tampa Bay behind rookie Paxton Lynch, Siemian left the game with two minutes remaining in the first half with what the Broncos described as an injury to his non-throwing shoulder.
Coach Gary Kubiak said Siemian probably could have re-entered the game if needed.
“Was getting ready to back up if I had to if something happened to Paxton but fortunately he did a heck of a job,” Siemian said, adding he was a “little sore.”
“I think I’m just going to take it one day at a time,” Siemian said. “But that’s the plan, to be ready to play.”
