Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Day-to-day with ankle sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanders is dealing with a right ankle sprain and is considered day-to-day, Troy E. Renck of Denver 7 News reports.

Sanders had a productive night (seven catches, 68 yards) in Thursday's win over the Colts before departing with the ankle issue, which was the same injury that resulted in a two-week absence earlier in the season. The fact that the Broncos are labeling Sanders as day-to-day suggests that the aggravation he suffered isn't especially serious, but it could be enough to threaten his status for the Week 16 game against the Redskins. Fortunately for Sanders, by virtue of the Broncos playing Thursday this week, he'll have nine full days to recover before the team's next contest.

Broncos' Brock Osweiler: Not guaranteed Week 16 start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Broncos head coach Vance Joseph wouldn't commit to Osweiler as the team's starting quarterback for the final two games of the season, Zac Stevens of BSNDenver.com reports.

Denver has a vacancy for the starting role after incumbent Trevor Siemian partially dislocated his left shoulder in Thursday's win over the Colts, with Joseph announcing Friday that the injury would sideline Siemian for the remainder of the season. Osweiler, who was impressive in relief of Siemian on Thursday while completing 12 of 17 passes for 194 yards and two touchdowns and adding another score on the ground, is the only signal caller on the roster who's currently healthy, but Joseph expressed optimism that Paxton Lynch (ankle) would be ready to suit up in Week 16. Despite Osweiler's stellar outing Thursday, he's not viewed as a long-term solution under center, whereas Lynch, a 2016 first-round pick, still has some perceived upside. With that in mind, the 5-9 Broncos could have more incentive to have Lynch direct the offense the next two weeks if his ankle injury doesn't prove to be too much of a concern.

Broncos' Paxton Lynch: Expected back in Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Broncos head coach Vance Joseph said he expects Lynch (ankle) to receive full clearance to play in advance of the team's next game Dec. 24 against the Redskins, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.

If Joseph's prediction holds true, Lynch could warrant immediate consideration for the starting quarterback role, which opened up again after Trevor Siemian partially dislocated his left shoulder in Thursday's win over the Colts. That injury will sideline Siemian for the Broncos' final two games of the season, leaving Brock Osweiler, who relieved Siemian on Thursday, and Lynch as the team's only quarterbacks. Per Zac Stevens of BSNDenver.com, Joseph wasn't willing to commit to Osweiler as the team's starter in Week 16, so it appears the performance of both of the Broncos' quarterbacks in practice during the upcoming week will ultimately dictate who receives the nod against the Redskins. Given Lynch's standing as a recent first-round pick, he could have an edge over Osweiler for the starting role if his health checks out fine by the end of next week.

Broncos' Trevor Siemian: Officially done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Broncos head coach Vance Joseph confirmed Friday that Siemian (shoulder) would be placed on injured reserve and miss the team's final two games of the season, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports.

On a lighter note, Siemian, who suffered a partial dislocation of his non-throwing shoulder in Thursday's win over the Colts, won't require surgery to address the injury. With only rest and rehab on the docket, Siemian should have a relatively normal offseason, but his underwhelming play this season likely has Denver turning its attention toward other starting options at quarterback in 2018. Brock Osweiler, who came on in relief for Siemian on Thursday, is currently positioned to start the Broncos' final two contests of 2017, but Paxton Lynch (ankle) could get another look if healthy enough to play in either game.

Broncos' Trevor Siemian: Out for the season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Siemian suffered a partial dislocation of his left shoulder in Thursday's win over the Colts, which will likely sideline him for the rest of the season, Mike Klis of 9 News Denver reports.

Given that it's his non-throwing shoulder in play here, the injury shouldn't have much of a long-term impact on Siemian, but it is enough of an issue to keep the quarterback out for the Broncos' final two games. For now, Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch are the only two signal callers on the Denver roster, and Lynch was inactive Thursday due to an ankle injury that had him listed as a non-participant at practice leading to the contest. Per the report, Lynch is slated to return to practice Monday.
