Trevor Siemian "making some progress" as Broncos prepare for Titans

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Quarterback Trevor Siemian said Tuesday he was "making some progress" toward a return from an injury to his left foot that kept him out of Sunday's win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Siemian, who joined Dave Logan and Susie Wargin for his weekly appearance on Denver Sports 760, maintained that his recovery is a day-to-day process.

"I think I'm getting better every day," Siemian said. "[I'm] trying to do some different things this week and see how it holds up. I think I'm making some headway and we'll see how it ends up."

The second-year player, who is 7-3 as a starter this season, said he's worked with Head Athletic Trainer Steve 'Greek' Antonopulos to rehab. The process has included ice, the cold tub and several other remedies.

Head Coach Gary Kubiak said Monday he hoped Siemian would be able to practice leading up to the Broncos' Sunday date with the Tennessee Titans. Siemian deferred to 'Greek' and the training staff when Logan asked if he expected to practice this week.

"If it was up to me," Siemian said, "I'd try to be out there every day doing something, but again, this is a day-to-day thing and that's how we're taking it. We'll come in in the morning tomorrow and see how I'm doing and listen to 'Greek' and he'll take care of me."

The injury, which Kubiak said occurred in overtime of a 30-27 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, didn't initially bother Siemian, who finished the game.

"I thought something was maybe going on maybe later that night," Siemian said. "When it happened it just felt a little different but nothing too crazy. And then the next morning is kind of when I noticed it and had 'Greek' check it out."

Siemian missed the entire week of practice ahead of the Broncos' game against Jacksonville, but the starting quarterback traveled with the team and sat in the press box with the coaching staff, including Offensive Coordinator Rick Dennison.

"I thought it was a good experience," he said. "Obviously I was just trying to stay out of the way and let those guys do their things. But it was definitely interesting to see the game from up-top and be on the headset."

As the team turns its focus toward the Titans, Siemian must prepare to start even as his injury status remains up in the air. When asked about Denver's next opponent, he spoke highly of a 6-6 Titans team that is tied for first place in the AFC South.

"[They're] obviously very well coached," Siemian said. "Playing really, really well obviously on the defensive side of the ball. Offensively, they're lighting it up. So it will be a great challenge for us against a hot team, but we've got a lot of guys in our locker room that feel confident going into it and these last [few] games."
