Brock Osweiler to replace Trevor Siemian as Broncos starting quarterback

Brock Osweiler to replace Trevor Siemian as Broncos starting quarterback

Vance Joseph stopped short of naming Brock Osweiler the starter for the rest of the season, but the Broncos coach admits as long as "Brock plays well, he plays next week".

The team finds itself without a clear answer at quarterback following another Trevor Siemian debacle Monday night, when he threw three interceptions in a 29-19 loss to the Chiefs.

Osweiler flopped in Houston in 2016 and was traded to the Cleveland Browns earlier this year before being cut.

Paxton Lynch, who was a full participant in practice last week for the first time since injuring his throwing shoulder in a preseason game August 26, "won't be in the mix" to start Sunday, Joseph said.

The Broncos play the Eagles (7-1) on Sunday.

Joseph was asked by media Tuesday whether the move would be permanent as the Broncos move ahead in their 2017 season.

Osweiler was a second-round draft pick by the Broncos in 2012 and backed up Peyton Manning.

"It came down to what's best for our football team, and quite frankly, what's best for Trevor's future", Joseph said, via Troy Renck of Denver7. Lynch, a former first-round pick, only has two career starts under his belt, hardly enough to fully evaluate him as a quarterback.

Osweiler has appeared in one game this season, completing 2 of 4 passes for 18 yards in the game against the New York Giants after Siemian got injured.

The run game, which was so good during the Broncos' hot start, mostly floundered until C.J. Anderson got loose for some big gains down the stretch. He returned to practice last week, but it's possible he is not yet ready to return to game action.

Siemian struggled mightily in recent weeks as the Broncos have lost three consecutive games and he failed to post a passer rating above 72 since the team's Week 5 bye. And as much as the Eagles' defense was looking forward to facing off against Siemian, there's a good chance they won't see that much of a difference when it comes to Osweiler. The team would go on to win Super Bowl 50. In your heart, you know he can play better because those three balls he threw, you just can't throw.
