Lynch (shoulder) will begin throwing at a distance of 10 yards next week, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports. Lynch initially was expected to miss five weeks, but that timeline has already passed and he hasn't even started a throwing program. Brock Osweiler could end up serving as Trevor Siemian's backup for the entire season.
Lynch (shoulder) has no timetable to resume throwing, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports. The Broncos' decision not to place Lynch on the Physically Unable to Perform list suggest the team believes the quarterback will be healthy in time to return by Week 7, but it seems likely that he'll at least miss a few games while he recovers from the shoulder injury. Until Lynch is cleared to begin throwing, it will be difficult to project when he'll be available to dress again, but the Broncos won't have much need for him anyway with coach Vance Joseph committing to Trevor Siemian as his starting quarterback earlier in training camp.
Lynch (shoulder) is expected to miss approximately five weeks, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Lynch's need for an extended absence explains why the Broncos were so quick to sign Brock Osweiler after he was released by the Browns on Friday. The team now has an experienced backup, one who potentially could retain the No. 2 role even after Lynch gets healthy. The 2016 first-round pick is recovering from a sprained throwing shoulder he suffered during the preseason.
The Broncos are expected to re-sign Brock Osweiler, all but confirming Lynch (shoulder) will be unavailable to start the regular season, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports. Lynch will carry a sprained right throwing shoulder into the regular season, which spurred the Broncos to bring back a familiar face in Osweiler to back up Trevor Siemian. A recovery timetable hasn't been attached to Lynch, so a multi-game absence is a fair assessment with a bit more than one week remaining before the team's Week 1 matchup with the Chargers. Expect the signal-caller to focus on rehabilitation for the foreseeable future.
Lynch sustained a shoulder sprain that will sideline him for a few weeks, but he will not require surgery, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. Lynch's setback is expected to result in the Broncos adding another quarterback behind starter Trevor Siemian. After losing out to Siemian for the second straight year, Lynch's injury adds to a disappointing past week or so, but he'll at least be relieved by avoiding surgery.
