Trevor Siemian is dealing with another injury.
The Denver Broncos quarterback did not practice Wednesday due to a sprained foot, Broncos coach Gary Kubiak told reporters. Kubiak added Siemian is wearing a protective boot and that he is day-to-day.
Siemian told reporters that his foot was “a little sore … nothing too crazy,” but wouldn’t say whether he thought he would play this week.
“Really not looking too far away,” he said. “Want to take it one day at a time.”
Siemian took a beating in Sunday night’s epic loss to the Kansas City Chiefs and suffered the injury during the overtime period, according to Mike Klis of KUSA-TV. The quarterback was sacked five times and stripped for a safety.

The second-year quarterback was finally getting healthy after a shoulder injury to his non-throwing arm sidelined him in Week 5. Siemian threw for a career-high 368 yards with three touchdowns versus the Chiefs. Over the past several weeks Siemian has been an asset to Denver’s offense (three straight games with two-plus touchdown passes) after Gary Kubiak took the restrictor plate off his seventh-round project.
The Broncos are being cautious with their starting quarterback ahead of Sunday’s matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Behind a porous offensive line, Siemian is likely to get battered down the stretch as the Broncos attempt to claw their way back into the playoffs. If Wednesday was just a maintenance day for a bruised quarterback, expect more days off as the calendar flips to December.
