If Trevor Siemian has it his way, he will start at quarterback for the Denver Broncos on Thursday night against the San Diego Chargers.
However, the team has listed Siemian as questionable, via Denver 7 ABC’s Troy Renck. According to NFL Network’s Mark E. Ortega, Siemian expects to play. All signs point to him playing, but on Sunday Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer talked about the severity of the injury.
“He actually has a grade III separation of his non-throwing shoulder,” Glazer said on Fox NFL Sunday. “Grade III is as bad is you get. Basically, the clavicle has separated from the shoulder. Its pressing against the skin. It’s a really bad pain management issue. It’s something that cosmetically, its gonna be there pretty much for the rest of his life. They look for him to back probably not next week, but the week after that.”
Cornerback Kayvon Webster was also listed as questionable, but it looks great for offensive lineman Donald Stephenson and tight end Virgil Green. Renck said on Twitter that they were not listed on the injury report, so it appears that they are on track to start. Neither player has taken the field since Week 2 due to calf injuries.
