Paxton Lynch to miss 2-4 weeks with ankle injury; Trevor Siemian to start vs. Dolphins

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Trevor Siemian will start for the Broncos on Sunday in Miami as Paxton Lynch recovers from an ankle injury, Head Coach Vance Joseph told Orange and Blue 760 on Monday.

"Paxton has an ankle injury that will keep him out two to four weeks, so Trevor will be the quarterback," Joseph said.

Lynch suffered the injury during Sunday's game against the Raiders and exited during the third quarter.

"I don't know the exact play, but I know I got hit," Lynch said Sunday. "I don't know if it was the sack. I can't remember the exact play, but I think somebody rolled up on it. I didn't think anything of it. A couple of plays throughout the game it kept bothering me, but I just thought I could keep playing, keep playing, keep playing. Then that play got to the point where it started to scare me a little bit. I mentioned something to the trainers and they thought it wouldn't be smart to go back in there and possibly make it worse."

Lynch completed 9-of-14 passes for 41 yards and an interception, and he also added 20 yards on the ground.

Siemian finished 11-of-21 for 149 yards and two touchdowns in his relief effort. He will make his eighth start of the season Sunday.
