Trevor Siemian day-to-day with sprained foot

Trevor Siemian is dealing with another injury.

The Denver Broncos quarterback did not practice Wednesday due to a sprained foot, Broncos coach Gary Kubiak told reporters. Kubiak added Siemian is wearing a protective boot and that he is day-to-day.

Siemian told reporters that his foot was "a little sore ... nothing too crazy," but wouldn't say whether he thought he would play this week.

"Really not looking too far away," he said. "Want to take it one day at a time."

Siemian took a beating in Sunday night's epic loss to the Kansas City Chiefs and suffered the injury during the overtime period, according to Mike Klis of KUSA-TV. The quarterback was sacked five times and stripped for a safety.

The second-year quarterback was finally getting healthy after a shoulder injury to his non-throwing arm sidelined him in Week 5. Siemian threw for a career-high 368 yards with three touchdowns versus the Chiefs. Over the past several weeks Siemian has been an asset to Denver's offense (three straight games with two-plus touchdown passes) after Gary Kubiak took the restrictor plate off his seventh-round project.

The Broncos are being cautious with their starting quarterback ahead of Sunday's matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Behind a porous offensive line, Siemian is likely to get battered down the stretch as the Broncos attempt to claw their way back into the playoffs. If Wednesday was just a maintenance day for a bruised quarterback, expect more days off as the calendar flips to December.
