INDIANAPOLIS — Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian was carted off the field at Lucas Oil Stadium in the first quarter Thursday night after suffering a left shoulder injury. His return was initially listed as questionable and he was later ruled out for the remainder of the game.
The X-rays on Siemian’s shoulder were said to be negative. He’ll have an MRI on when the team returns to Colorado.
Siemian was rolling out on third-and-goal play at the Indianapolis 7-yard line when he was chased down from behind by linebacker Barkevious Mingo. Siemian appeared to land on the shoulder as he was dragged to the ground.
Siemian threw an interception on Denver’s first drive, which the Colts turned into a 50-yard touchdown drive to take a 7-0 lead. After Siemian was sacked and exited the game, the Broncos committed a delay of game penalty before Brandon McManus pushed a 40-yard field-goal attempt wide to the right.
Siemian had surgery on his left shoulder in January. He suffered an AC joint sprain last season.
