Brock Osweiler plays series for Broncos after Siemian injury scare

Denver Broncos backup quarterback Brock Osweiler briefly saw action as the team assessed starter Trevor Siemian for a shoulder injury.

Siemian left the game in the 23-10 defeat to the New York Giants in the final minute of the first half with an apparent non-throwing shoulder injury while trying to stop a pick six.

The third-year quarterback landed awkwardly attempting to bring down Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins, who had picked off Siemian and took the interception 43 yards to the house to give the Giants a 17-3 lead with 50 seconds remaining of the first half.

Brock Osweiler played the last series of the first half

Osweiler, who rejoined the Broncos in September after 2016 first-round pick Paxton Lynch suffered a shoulder injury in preseason, played the final series of the first half, going 2-4 for 18 yards.

Siemian, who was 11-23 for 148 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in the first half, was initially declared questionable to return by the team, but started and lasted the second half while attempting 50 passes on a disappointing night for the Broncos.

ESPN staff writer Jeff Legwold reported after the game that Siemian will undergo an MRI scan on Monday to test for a possible AC sprain.

Siemian injured his non-throwing shoulder in week four last season against Tampa Bay and had a minor surgical procedure, which kept him out of the following game against the Atlanta Falcons.
