Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian did not practice on Wednesday due to a foot injury that is considered "day to day" for the time being, coach Gary Kubiak announced.
Kubiak said Siemian has a foot sprain, leaving the quarterback in a walking boot. Kubiak thinks the injury occurred during a sack in the Broncos' overtime loss to Kansas City on Sunday night. After Kubiak elected to kick a 62 yard field goal that ultimately missed wide, the Chiefs responded with a 34 yard field goal to win 30-27 in epic fashion.
"It's something that he came out of the game and [was] very, very sore on Monday morning. [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. "He went in a boot yesterday and we left him in here today. We'll see. It's a day-to-day process. We'll see how much ground he can make up."
In his place, first-round pick Paxton Lynch took all the first-team reps during Wednesday's pracitce. Lynch has appeared in two games with one start, producing 393 yards, two touchdowns and one interception to date.
The Broncos also lost fullback Andy Janovich to injured reserve with an ankle injury. Kubiak mentioned he was injured on the first play of the game, but played through it.
