Vance Joseph said he hasn't decided who will start at quarterback against the Washington Redskins. He added the Broncos do not expect to add a quarterback to the roster and that they'll finish out the season with Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch. "We'll have a staff meeting Monday and decide."

Broncos coach Vance Joseph said quarterback Trevor Siemian will go to injured reserve with left shoulder injury. Joseph said at this point the Broncos believe no surgery will be needed.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Brock Osweiler entered Thursday's game with the worst completion percentage on passes thrown 20+ yards downfield the last 3 seasons (21%). He bucked that trend on Thursday, going 3-of-5 with career highs in completions, yards and touchdowns on such passes.

Jeff Legwold ESPN Senior Writer 

Broncos running back C.J. Anderson has easily passed his previous high in carries this season -- 25 against Dallas -- as he had 30 at the two minute warning. And the Broncos now have five games this season when they've run the ball more than they've passed it and won all five.

Jeff Legwold ESPN Senior Writer 

The Broncos have had four games this season when their quarterback has thrown at least two touchdown passes in a game and two of those have been when the quarterback didn't start the game -- Trevor Siemian against Oakland and Brock Osweiler tonight against the Colts.

Jeff Legwold ESPN Senior Writer 

Broncos trail the Colts 10-7 at halftime, and they are 0-8 this season when they trail at halftime, 0-9 when they trail at the end of the third quarter.

Nominee for best play of the season that didn't count when Broncos running back leaped over Colts safety Clayton Geathers for what would have been a touchdown, but the play was then negated by a holding call on rookie tackle Garett Bolles.

Broncos QB Siemian set for MRI on shoulder

Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian will have an MRI on Friday for the left shoulder injury he suffered in Thursday night's loss to the Colts.

Jeff Legwold ESPN Senior Writer 

Doctors are walking Trevor Siemian toward locker room -- he was holding left arm/shoulder after sack.

Jeff Legwold ESPN Senior Writer 

That has been a theme of the season for Broncos as the offense turned it over and the defense, despite its rankings for much of the season, didn't hold the opponent after sudden change. Colts turned Siemian interception into 7-0 lead in seven-play drive.

Jeff Legwold ESPN Senior Writer 

That was Trevor Siemian's 10th interception in a road game this season.

Broncos inactives: RB De'Angelo Henderson, T Cyrus Kouandjio, TE Matt LaCosse, CB Brendan Langley, QB Paxton Lynch, WR Isaiah McKenzie, DE/OLB DeMarcus Walker.

Jeff Legwold ESPN Senior Writer 

Watched Paxton Lynch make some throws and it's clear he still can't stride normally on injured ankle. So, he looks closer to healthy, but not quite there. Can't imagine the Broncos would put him back in lineup if there is any concern about his mobility.

Defensive end/outside linebacker DeMarcus Walker is one of the players going through a workout with the Broncos strength coaches on the field. It would appear the rookie will be a gameday inactive once again.

Jeff Legwold ESPN Senior Writer 

As if the downtown stadium that has hosted a Super Bowl isn't enough of a reminder of the impact Peyton Manning had on Indianapolis during his time with the Colts and before his four seasons with the Broncos, there is now this statue outside Lucas Oil Stadium, unveiled earlier this season.
