According to multiple reports, Denver Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian is out for the remainder of the 2017 season with an injury to his left (non-throwing) shoulder.
Trevor Siemian has sublaxation, or partial dislocation, in left shoulder joint, league sources tell 9News. Will miss rest of season. Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch are up. #9sports

#Broncos Vance Joseph will meet press at noon. QB will be part of the conversation. Siemian is done for year with sprained/dislocated left shoulder. Osweiler in line to start. But will Paxton Lynch play before season ends? #Denver7

The shoulder sprain that #Broncos QB Trevor Siemian suffered last night is expected to keep him out the final two games, I’m told. The question now: Does the coaching staff turn to Paxton Lynch to give the team’s brass an evaluation before 2018? Lynch is back at practice soon.

Head coach Vance Joseph confirmed the report on Friday afternoon.
Trevor Siemian is done for the year. Going on IR. No surgery needed for now. Just rest and rehab, Vance Joseph said.

Siemian suffered a subluxation (partial dislocation) of his left shoulder on Denver’s second offensive drive of the game against the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday night. He was replaced by Brock Osweiler, who went on to rally the Broncos to a 25-13 win, bringing their overall record to 5-9.
Osweiler has already been named the team’s starting quarterback for their Week 16 game against the Washington Redskins.
With Siemian done for the year and Paxton Lynch battling a high ankle sprain, the Broncos may be forced to bring in another quarterback off the streets for the remainder of the season.
