According to reports, Siemian will miss the rest of the season.
Trevor Siemian left the Broncosâ€™ game vs. the Colts with a left shoulder injury after taking a hit on their second possession. The Broncos soon ruled him out for the rest of the game after he was taken to the locker room.
Brock Osweiler entered the game in place of Siemian, and heâ€™ll take over for the rest of the season. Itâ€™s a dislocated shoulder for Siemian. Heâ€™ll miss the Broncos final two games, according to Mike Klis of 9News.
What does this mean for the Broncos? Itâ€™s just more inconsistency at quarterback. Siemian hasnâ€™t been great this season, and Osweiler hasnâ€™t been any better. The Broncos came into this game with a 4-9 record, and a lost cause of a season.
The Broncosâ€™ offense struggled on its first two drives. Siemian threw a bad interception on the first one, and while they were able to get into the red zone on their second, it ended with a missed field goal by Brandon McManus.
Osweiler got the Broncos on the board right before halftime with an 18-yard rushing touchdown, which he was pretty pumped about. He then threw another touchdown in the third quarter to give Denver its first lead of the game. Osweiler had his best game of the season. He went 12-of-17 for 194 yards, two touchdowns, and no turnovers.
Siemian underwent offseason surgery on the same shoulder. An MRI Friday will determine the severity of the injury:
X-rays taken at the stadium of Trevor Siemian’s shoulder were said to be negative. He’ll have an MRI tomorrow back in Colorado.

Regardless of whether the Siemian plays again this season, the quarterback position is one that the Broncos will be addressing this offseason. For now, theyâ€™ll be hoping heâ€™s fine.
