Report: Trevor Siemian will start at QB Thursday night for Denver Broncos


The Denver Broncos are getting starting QB Trevor Siemian back Thursday night, just days after the defending champions' first loss of the season.

Siemian said Tuesday he expected to be ready to start against the San Diego Chargers this week and early Thursday morning, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that a team official had told him that would indeed be the case.

Siemian hurt his non-throwing shoulder in a Week 4 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and was held out against the Atlanta Falcons the following Sunday.

Rookie Paxton Lynch started in his place, throwing for 223 yards with a TD and an interception in a 23-16 loss.
