Broncos vs. Falcons Final Injury Report
The Denver Broncos enter week five with some more bumps and bruises as the team looks ready to rumble against the Atlanta Falcons, this Sunday.
After the Tampa Bay Buccaneers game last Sunday, Trevor Siemian is the most notable player on the injury list. As practice continued during the week Siemian would throw on a limited basis. Head coach Gary Kubiak stated the decision of starter comes on game day. Paxton Lynch performed well in his NFL debut and the Denver Broncos may be best suited to start Lynch this Sunday. If Siemian is not fully healthy by Thursday, Lynch may get the nod versus the San Diego Chargers in their “color rush” game. Siemian is officially ruled as questionable for the game in Atlanta.
“We moved him around a little bit Friday; that’s something we didn’t do Thursday. We’ll just go back and look at the big picture and what’s going on,” Kubiak said on the health of Siemian and Lynch starting on Sunday.
The tight end position has lacked in production the past few weeks with the loss of Virgil Green not in the lineup, but this Sunday appears to a go for the tight end. This is good news for a team who struggled in the running game against the Cincinnati Bengals and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Green’s presence also is felt in the passing attack, since he is a much better athlete than some give him credit for.
Special teams will take a hit on Sunday, as Kayvon Webster is ruled out with a hamstring injury. Webster did not practice all week, but did participate in the necessary conditioning drills to come back to his role. Look for Cody Latimer to take his spot on special teams, since Latimer is proving to be a worthy gunner on that unit.
