The injury is bad enough to cause Siemian to miss Wednesday's practice session. No matter the severity, getting him treatment for the foot is a better decision, than letting him stand on it for a couple hours in practice.
http://www.scout.com/nfl/broncos/story/1733258-film-room-siemian-unveile... The coaches believe Siemian — like center Matt Paradis — is good enough, and sharp enough to miss practice(s) and still start on Sunday. Denver will travel to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 13.
At 7-4, the Broncos can ill-afford to lose another game, let alone to a lowly 2-9 club like Jacksonville. Rookie Paxton Lynch is taking the first team reps in Siemian's stead.
The concern with Siemian is that it might be a lisfranc issue. Fans remember how badly a lisfranc injury derailed Peyton Manning's final season in Denver.
Head Coach Gary Kubiak is expected to shed light on the injury following Wednesday's practice. No matter which way you cut it, though, this is bad news, especially after Siemian had a career day throwing for 368 yards and three touchdowns, albeit in a losing effort.
Siemian is in a walking boot today and has been classified day-to-day. We will update you when we receive further information.
