When Broncos coach Gary Kubiak announced on Monday that Trevor Siemian will get the start in the Broncos third preseason game, he also said that it wasn’t clear whether Siemian would be a full participant in Tuesday’s practice.

Siemian banged his shoulder while trying to make a tackle after an interception against the 49ers last weekend, leaving him with some soreness that called his Tuesday status into question. That questioned was answered on Tuesday.

According to multiple reports from the Broncos facility, Siemian ran the offense during running drills before giving way to Mark Sanchez and Paxton Lynch when it came time to put the ball in the air. The fact that Siemian was at practice in any capacity and not getting treatment from the medical staff would seem to suggest a relatively low concern level about his ability to go on Saturday.

Andrew Mason of the team’s website reports that Lynch is getting the “lion’s share” of work with Siemian out of action. Kubiak said both Lynch and Sanchez are slated to get the same amount of playing time as Siemian against the Rams this week, but didn’t say which one would replace Siemian.
