ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Paxton Lynch will miss two to four weeks after he suffered a sprained ankle in the Broncos' loss to the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, coach Vance Joseph said Monday.
Trevor Siemian will return as starting quarterback.
Siemian came in for Lynch during the Raiders game and led back-to-back touchdown drives.
“I don’t know the exact play, but I know I got hit,” Lynch said after the game Sunday. “I don’t know if it was the sack. I can’t remember the exact play, but I think somebody rolled up on it."
Lynch was 9-of-14 for 41 yards and an interception against the Raiders.
Siemian beat out Lynch for the starting quarterback job during training camp in August. Siemian was benched in favor of Brock Osweiler after he committed several turnovers.
Osweiler played three games before Joseph named Lynch the starting quarterback for last week's Raiders game.
The Broncos have lost seven consecutive games, their longest skid in 50 years.
