Coach Gary Kubiak announced Monday that Siemian will be the first man under center against the Rams.
As you know, that game is traditionally a dress rehearsal for the regular season. That would suggest that Siemian has some edge in the starting quarterback competition. But, there are some complications, according to the story. Kubiak said that Siemian has a sore shoulder as a result of an attempted tackle he made after throwing an interception against the 49ers and that it’s not clear yet whether he’ll be able to practice on Tuesday. Kubiak also said that he wants Siemian, Mark Sanchez and Paxton Lynch to play the same amount of time on Saturday night, but didn’t say whether Lynch or Sanchez would be the second quarterback into the game. Kubiak didn’t rule out any of the three winding up as the starter following the Rams game. The way this competition is going, this news may not have told us much of anything.
