According to NFL.com’s Ian Rappaport, Siemian suffered a sprained AC joint on his non-throwing shoulder.

Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak said the second-year quarterback could have returned to the game in an emergency situation, but since rookie Paxton Lynch was playing well in his place, it wasn’t necessary.
Siemian also weighed in, telling ABC News that he will be checked out more on Monday, but plans on being ready to play next Sunday against Atlanta.
“Just got a bum shoulder, a little sore,” Siemian told ABC. ” … I think I’m just going to take it one day at a time… But yeah, that’s the plan, I’ll be ready to play.”
In the game, Siemian was 5-of-7 for 68 yards and a touchdown.
On the season, the former Wildcat has started all four games for the Broncos and has completed 68 passes for 824 yards and thrown for six touchdowns and three interceptions.
The Broncos went on to win the game 27-7 with Lynch throwing for 170 yards and a touchdown.
Should Siemian not be able to play on Sunday, Lynch will presumably get the start, but if all that’s been said is true, the Broncos’ starter should be ready to go.
