Broncos lose Andy Janovich to ankle injury

Siemian demurred when asked if he was anxious he'd miss the game Sunday at Jacksonville (2-9). "Nothing too insane", Siemian said. "[Swelled] up on him and "Greek" [Head Athletic Trainer Steve Antonopulos] thought it was best to put him in a boot for a few days", Kubiak said via the official website. "I'm really not looking too far ahead".

A month later, Manning retired a champion, Osweiler parlayed his play into a $72 million contract in Houston and Siemian, a seventh-round draft pick in 2015, eventually beat out first-round draft pick Paxton Lynch and veteran Mark Sanchez as Manning's successor.

The loss dropped the Broncos to 7-4 and into third place in the AFC West, one game behind the Chiefs and two games behind the Oakland Raiders.

Siemian, who had previously dealt with a left shoulder issue, is coming off a productive effort in Sunday night's overtime loss to the Chiefs, with his status now worth monitoring as Week 13's game against the Jaguars approaches.

"He played extremely well", Kubiak said Monday. Siemian and coach Gary Kubiak are scheduled to speak to media Wednesday afternoon after the team's practice session. The quarterback was sacked five times and stripped for a safety.

Kubiak said he believed the injury occured when Siemian was sacked in overtime before the Broncos took a 27-24 lead, but Siemian said he was uncertain when he suffered the injury. No matter which way you cut it, though, this is bad news, especially after Siemian had a career day throwing for 368 yards and three touchdowns, albeit in a losing effort.

"I feel confident in me and I feel confident in the guys around me", Lynch said.
