Lynch, who is recovering from a high-ankle sprain he suffered in Week 12 against the Raiders, practiced on a limited basis on Wednesday and Thursday ahead of the Broncos’ game in Washington. He was a full participant Friday, but Osweiler started and played the entirety of Sunday’s contest.
Head Coach Vance Joseph noted earlier in the week that Lynch’s health would play a key role in determining whether he would start vs. Washington.
Following Sunday’s game, Joseph reiterated that point.
“Our goal is to see him play, so absolutely,” Joseph said. “If he’s ready to go next week, he will probably play for us.”
Lynch and Osweiler actually split reps leading up to the Washington game. With lots of QB questions heading into next season, the Broncos would clearly like to see more of Lynch.
