Denver Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian had to leave the field with injury against the Indianapolis Colts.
The Broncos had moved the ball down the field on the Colts, and had a 3rd and goal from the 7-yard-line. However, Siemian was sacked by Colts linebacker Barkevious Mingo for a 10-yard-loss. Siemian also hurt his non-throwing shoulder on the play and after a very short examination on the sidelines, he was carted off to the locker room.
Brock Osweiler will be replacing Siemian at quarterback for the Broncos. However, he is the only active backup quarterback. Their emergency quarterback is wide receiver Jordan Taylor.
This is not the first time that Siemian has had trouble with that shoulder. He missed some time with that injury during the 2016 season, and later had surgery on that shoulder during the offseason.
It has been a tough 2017 season for Siemian. He started off the year playing well, including a 4 passing touchdown game against the Dallas Cowboys.
He threw 2 interceptions the next week in a loss to the Buffalo Bills. An interception early in the first quarter against the Colts gives him 14 on the season, and only 12 touchdowns.
Update: The Broncos have ruled Siemian out for the rest of the game
