Yahoo's Charlie Robinson hears from Broncos staffers that Trevor Siemian is winning the team's QB competition "by default." He's been steady-if-unspectacular early in camp, while Paxton Lynch has failed to take a step forward. "If you believe the practice tape that others have watched, Lynch has lost every single practice session to Siemian," Robinson writes. "His sparse collection of good days has been – at best – on par with Siemian’s good days. Lynch’s bad days have been exponentially worse." Denver's front office would prefer their 2016 first-rounder to win this job, but they'll go with Siemian if he gives them a better chance to win. It sounds like that's still the case at this point. Neither of these guys is a fantasy option outside of 2-QB leagues, but Siemian is the target if you're dabbling in Broncos QBs.

The Broncos on Wednesday agreed to send QB Trevor Siemian and a 2018 draft pick to the Vikings for a 2019 pick (both unspecified), according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Siemian actually joins Minnesota before Kirk Cousins has officially signed, but Cousins will obviously step into the starting role -- barring some shocking breakdown in negotiations. Siemian, meanwhile, can slide into the backup role he should have occupied all along.

Broncos QB Trevor Siemian will undergo surgery on his left (non-throwing) shoulder this week, according to insider Mike Klis. Siemian had surgery on the same shoulder about a year ago, but this procedure is for a different injury: to repair a damaged posterior capsule. Siemian has 1 year left on his contract with Denver but figures to face much stiffer competition for the starting job this offseason. The Broncos have already been connected to QB Kirk Cousins and also hold the 5th overall pick of this spring's draft.

Broncos insider Mike Klis hears that QB Trevor Siemian has been diagnosed with a dislocated left shoulder that'll cost him the final 2 games of the season. With QB Paxton Lynch still recovering from a high-ankle sprain, it'll likely be Brock Osweiler under center vs. the Redskins and Chiefs to close out Denver's disappointing season.

Broncos QB Trevor Siemian injured his left (non-throwing) shoulder in the 1st half of Thursday night's game against the Colts. He was carted back to the locker room and is officially questionable to return. Siemian had surgery on this same shoulder last offseason and injured it again back in Week 6. QB Brock Osweiler has entered for Denver.

Update: Siemian was ruled out a short time after exiting.

Broncos QB Trevor Siemian will start this weekend's game against the Jets, insider Mike Klis reports. Siemian was abysmal against a bad Dolphins pass defense yesterday, completing 19 of 41 passes (46.3%) for 200 yards, 0 TDs and 3 INTs. Denver simply doesn't have a better option on the roster. Siemian isn't a Week 14 fantasy option and makes the Jets defense a viable spot start.
